So I went to visit my sister in Wyoming and thought I would stop by Keyhole Reservoir and fish from the shore for a while. I thought I had snagged a rock but then it started moving. It was a Walleye that was almost 29 inches. I had it weighed on the meat scale at a grocery store in Moorcroft and it weighed in at 8.16 pounds. Since I am not at home I will try and downsize the pics and attach them soon.

Here are some of the pics of this fish. I didn't have a camera with me so I had to take pics at my sisters place.

Thats an awesome walleye. I know what you mean when you said you though you snagged a rock and then it slowly started to move. Those guys fight like a wet rag.

I hope to be able to post a report or two like this in the next few weeks when I go to MN for 2 weeks.

Thanks for the supporting comments everyone. I took plenty of pics of this girl so that I can have a replica made for the wall. I caught this fish in a shallow sandy clearing(about 3-4 feet deep) using a 1/16 oz. jig head with a black and chartreuse tube jig tipped with a dead minnow I found on some rocks. I wish I had more time to fish this lake because it is loaded with pike, walleye, crappie, smallies and monster cats.

Sounds like I need a WY fishing license and a little time off...

You would love some of the fishing opportunities in Wyoming. The Bighorns(west of the Keyhole area)also has some of the fastest paced brookie fishing I have ever done. But you should have some real success for the eyes if you are going to Minnesota. I talked with a guy a few days ago who was telling me about his fishing exploits up there, they caught hundreds of eyes. Someday I hope to try the upper midwest. Good luck and don't forget the camera like I always do.

Yeah it should be a good time in Minnesota. Im taking all my Walleye and Pike gear, and I ALWAYS have a camera over the shoulder.
