Detroit River "Hog"


Jason Binkley

Livonia Michigan

The Detroit river is one of the best walleye fisheries in the country. As millions of Great Lakes walleye dump into the river every spring to spawn. Thousands of fishermen travel accross the country to get in on the action, with hopes of filling the freezer, or landing a trophy. While jigging on the detroit river April 16th 2013, I managed to haul in this 11lb 7oz 31"in. beauty!.. If you enjoy walleye fishing, and wish to have the chance at landing a trophy... Get to the Detroit River from the end March thru May. You won't regret it!. Good Luck!..
