My Buddy had his bachelor party up in Broken Bow this weekend. The fishing was good and we had a great time. Ended up catching a lot of nice rainbows and one really good one plus a walleye/saugeye that was a surprise. I have never caught a walleye or saugeye so I cant tell the difference between the species. The bow caught me off guard, I was half half asleep day dreaming when she hit. I was lucky to get a good hookset and she immediately came up to the surface and rolled and I knew I had a good fish. My knees were getting weak and shaking. I was praying the tippit wouldn't break or she wouldn't shake the hook loose. She was head shaking a lot and rolling in the water. There were a lot of rocks she could have tried to wrap me around but didn't, she stayed in the open water. I finally got her in the net. Some people probably look at me like I'm an idiot on the river because I carry a huge net. But my thinking is; when you need a net you need a net. I never understood why people carry some a small 12" or so net. Small fish don't really need to be netted and a big fish isn't going to fit in a small net. Just my thoughts.
