    14. nice bunch of fish.
      I have fished a couple ultra clear Canadian lakes where the walleyes take on a golden color
    15. Never paid much attention to that Noah, may be weird lighting. I don't remember it being that gold whenhe caught it.
    16. Never seen a golden walleye, very cool
    17. Thanks DerekπŸ‘Š We've been pretty lucky. Water temps have been around 78°!! And most of the lakes we are catching them at are 4-6 feet deep!

  6. Productive day at a pond today. Started the morning throwing a chug bait and plastic worms. Caught a few fish that were still skinny from spawning, but had the ...more length. 20" fish that only weighed 3lbs. 6/7oz. Switched over to live bluegills and caught some chunks up to 5lbs. 3oz in these pics. Big storm moved in and pushed me off the water for the second day in a row.

I live in Iowa City, IA. Love to fish for anything that swims! Have the Iowa River close by and lots of farm ponds. Travel north every year ...more for ice fishing trip and once during the summer. Can't wait to try deep sea fishing and notch that one off of my bucket list.
