Long day in the library, ate dinner, called up Jeff to go fshin...out we went. 5 min walk from our dorms we were fishin, half hour went by with no luck, Jeff went upstream and I fished the pool I started in, threw the mini golden rapala into the current...let it slide into the backwater and BANG! Hooked what appeared to be a big brown at least 20 in. couldnt budge it and pulled the hook after a few seconds sending the rap into the woods behind me, bad hookset o well. Got Jeff and went back to the pool frustrated and determined. Cast a few times, nothing. Made the same cast that hooked the fish before and it jumped back on. Jumped and splashed like a banshi, finally got control and grabbed it before I lost it again. Surprised to feel scales instead of skin...Nice 22 1/2 inch walleye to add to the fish tally, took a few snapshots and sent her home. Lots of fun on the new untralight!
