Couldn't ask for a better day!

Sun was shining, birds were chirping, and BIG fish were biting. Fished a Bemidji area lake and man what a day...

Got to the lake around 10:30 and set-up for some tullies and perch with a tip-up out for a northern or two... Managed to get only one tullie and a bunch of perch, was packing up quick to pick up some friends at the landing and left my tip-up out for last. Just as i was slowly puling my sucker up a beast of a fish took a swing and a miss... so I dropped it back down quick and held the line in my hands and gave it a few jigs and she came back and plowed it! in 5 fow with clear water I was able to watch it all unfold. After a quick picture she swam away strong.

Then as the sun started setting I got set up for some walters. Just after the sun dropped below the trees I got this big pig. Took some persuading with a rattlin' flyrer but after a bit she hammered it.

44" muskie and 31" walleye.
