A couple of days ago I wrote about a walleye pigging out on a burbot and then taking a jig as well. This northern decided he wanted lunch more than the fisherman. Northern don’t fish for sport so we see this type of action often. It is a thrill to be bringing up a nice walleye and then all of a sudden have it pulled back the other way with more than a little vigor.
Even with a small walleye on the line it is best to hang on to your rod… you never know!
