Walleyes and a Wedding!

Travis Frank

Life is good.  The walleye fishing has been incredible this year, and I'm proud to say that I'm now a married man.  May 31, 2013 was easily the best day of my life.  I married my sweetheart and made a sincere promise to always show her my secret fishing spots.  She's definitely my best catch yet, and I'm a proud husband.

Prior to our wedding day I was able to enjoy several great outings.  I could argue that it's been the best spring of walleye fishing that I've ever had on lake Minnetonka.   It's been a good combination of size and numbers.  There's a very strong population of fish in that lake in the 16 to 18 inch range right now, and the trophy class fish are equally as abundant.  There was a 4 day stretch where we boated at least one fish over 28 inches.  Quite incredible on a metro body of water.  To this day, the bite is still going strong. 

This album should be the last of my cell phone pictures.  Thanks to my sweet friends, a wedding gift card to National Camera Exchange means that I'm going to be back in the photo taking business by the end of today.  If you follow this blog, you should expect to see better images in the very near future.  Like maybe tomorrow.  Until then, remember that life is short.  Keep on livin' the dream!
