      If you're going to lie on size do yourself a favor and make it at least sound believable to save yourself the embarrassment

  6. Smacked the saugers pretty hard with one-eyes in a firetiger/perchy patern towards the front of the barge.

    2 lb. 17 in. Sauger with a One-eye

    1. Noah Humfeld 0
      Jordan it was delicious! Tim, most saugers run small (10-15"). A big one is anything 17" to around 21-22". They generally seem to prefer dirtier waters ...more like the Mississippi and the Lake Winnebago system.

      There all trophies when they are mixed with butter and onions!

      Nice sauger! I've never caught one of those. I'm not sure why we don't have them around here. How big to they tend to run? What would you call a trophy ...more sauger?

  7. Caught a TON of pike on just about everything I threw! The hottest bait was the echotail, cast out, gently ripped, then left to fall and lay on the bottom for a ...more second or so. The fish actually picked the lure up off the bottom!

    5 lb. 36 in. Northern Pike with a Vibrations Tackle Echotail/Rapala Husky Jerks/Curly Tail Grubs on Jigs

      The common great white toothy... Mean muggin us!
  8. Caught this Green Bay beauty pre fishing for an AIM Pro Walleye Series tournament. First fish of practice! Not a bad way to get the week rolling!

    1. Best eating fish I've ever had and I've eaten many fish. Good to leave the females to bread.
    2. Kevin Miller 0
      Hear that bud! Always let those females go.
    3. Noah Humfeld 0
      I started as a bass guy, but found that I think fish with teeth are more fun! Hey, I'm all about eating walleye too! My only rule is letting the big females ...more go!
    4. Kevin Miller 0
      Nice man! I love tourney fishing for sure. I'm a bass guy, but not against learning the walleye trail. I was just teasing you about the walleyed. I meant I'd ...more be eating all mine. Haha
    5. Noah Humfeld 0
      Thanks Kevin and Tim! I should clarify that this was from last year!! I put it up on the braggin' board and it ended up automatically posting the catch! For ...more me there is nothing like the rush of fishing a tournament, especially against the top walleye pros in the world! Kevin, the trail I fish might interest you, its the AIM Pro Walleye Series, and we don't actually bring in our fish. Instead, we take photos of them on a bump board and convert the length to a weight using a table provided to us. This way we don't hurt any fish! www.aimfishing.com

      Nice eye bud! Good luck with the tourney. Hats off to you for fishing walleye tourneys, because there is no way in hell I could do that. I'd lose every tourney ...more because my bag limit is dead. They taste so good! Hahaha

      I've never actually fished in the southern part, but I probably should. It sounds like it is a fantastic fishery!

  9. Had this 15lb, 33 inch monster brown slam a custom painted Vibrations Tackle Echotail blade bait back in October! The bite was fast and furious! If you haven't ...more tried fishing the great lakes in the fall when the salmon and trout move into the marinas, you absolutely have to! This is by far the biggest trout I'd ever seen, and I was lucky enough to land it!

  10. Here is a MONSTER Sheepshead that my wonderful girlfriend Raina caught while prefishing with me for the AIM walleye tournament on Lake Winnebago. She landed this ...more beast on a purple size 7 Berkley Flicker Shad while trolling the mouth of the Fox River where it enters the lake. It was so big, it pulled the planer board right under!
