Without giving away your secret spot, can you tell us the location WNY, CNY, SNY or ADK?

His location says "dead sea" so I'm thinking that's the clue.

Outstanding day fishing Thor.

Wow nice fish.
If fishing is a sport are we considered athletes?

The funny/sad part is, my daughter's 26" walleye was the biggest I've seen, 4 hours later the 28" was caught.  She had the family record for a few hours.   ;)    Mine was the runt at around 22 (didn't measure that one).   All released.

We caught all the walleye on tip-ups.  Had zero luck jigging.

Amazing seeing those fatties swim by the hole.  Thought they were carp at first, they were so fat.

Location wise, as Arietta pointed out, were usually on the Dead Sea.   These weren't from there, but pretty close.

Thanks for the comments

Interesting technique for holding those Walleye/Pike up for pics. Must be pretty kool gloves you got. Great fishing by all.
