I was trolling in Baptiste Lake Ontario on October 1, 2012. It was a full moon weekend so we were out all night trolling and wating for the big ones to bite. I was using a 8" Jake and trolling 25-50 feet of water. Around 1am in the morning I finally got picked up by this monster walleye and brought him in. We took pictures, measured and released the fish as we always do. We are firm believers in CPR in any lake and take pride in knowing these monsters are back in the lake where they belong.
