One additional note, I think everyone enjoys seeing all the pictures which are entered in the contest. I just want to note that there is a rule that in order to win the photo needs to be uploaded to the site to win. The reason for this is there is technology dependent on site loaded photos in order to move winners to other pages automatically and enters winning photos in the year end contest. I apologize for the any inconvenience.

I have a better picture of the same fish I don't know maybe I'll edit that as my entry. But anyway northern from my '04 trip. I hooked that one in the eye.

I love this picture because it has my son and I both in the picture. I had the pole and he got the Northern into the canoe with no net.

That's an awesome fish photo, Singingloon!

This WAS going to be lunch.
04/06/2007 09:57AM
Hey Canoepaddle, that's the same fish I caught in the BW! :-)

It was the first fish that he ever caught.

I love your picture Snakecharmer! I think your entire picture tells a story! I like that you can see the lake where the prize was caught, you have captured the expression of pride on the gentleman's face, and the fish almost seems happy to be someone's dinner!

Really, really good!

04/07/2007 10:16AM
Gentleman????pride???? That's a smirk and it ain't no gentleman!
04/07/2007 10:24AM
Thanks Lost Paddle! That photo is a favorite of mine for some of the same reasons you mentioned. And I like to think that the fish still roams the rock piles and wind-swept shores of Lake Agnes - it was released seconds after the picture was taken.

One of my favorites- mostly because I'm a bit younger! Laker on Oyster Lake.
04/07/2007 08:46PM

Lake 3 Lunker, caught Memorial Day Weekend 2005. It was only slightly smaller than the single walleye caught on this trip.

Mouth of the Horse River on Horse Lake. That's my brother trying to show off 'ol slimy.
04/08/2007 10:25AM
These LLC Smallies warmed up a cold Mid-May morning.
04/08/2007 04:09PM
Size is in the eye of the beholder! My son displays the only Walleye caught on our June '06 trip. It was our last day and he knew he out-fished his Old Dad! You can see it in his eyes!
04/08/2007 11:32PM
Always on time.

Uncle Moose is the undisputed winner. Wow, what a fish. How did you get the hook out? Where did you buy a hook that small?
04/13/2007 12:11AM

04/13/2007 01:26AM
He wasn't very big, but he had an attitude. Small Walleye. Slim Lake.
04/14/2007 09:50AM
Nick - Here's a link to that lure we used to catch this whopper. He put up quite a fight, but we finally managed to tired him out.

The Lure
04/14/2007 09:58AM
Uncle Moose....I love giant lures like that. And that thing she's holding isn't bad either.
04/14/2007 01:02PM
LOL!!! ;-)
04/15/2007 12:13AM
Uncle Moose.... is there a lure in that picture? I looked for over an hour and I still don't see a lure!!!
04/15/2007 09:51AM
Holy Schnikey! Do you think they're real? The lures I mean.
04/15/2007 10:39AM
Just like a good fisherman...Always have TWO of your favorite lures.
