    Well I got a call from a good friend of mine asking if I wanted to help him out with some gill-netting this last weekend. We ran 10 sets that were 80 feet long. The nets were short sets meaning that they were only in the water for a short period of time. All fish were returned to the water alive and well. We sampled several walleyes over 7 pounds and the monster ski was 47" and 43 lbs. Ill bet she was as big around as a 5 gallon bucket. This should make Thomas mouth water.

    I've seen 50 inch musky's up at Clear Lake when I did gill netting for the walleye spawn. Stupid big. Only thing I miss from my DNR fisheries days is running the night nets at Clear.
