Walleye Gold!

Travis Frank

It's not too often that I get worked up over a picture.  Ok, well not enough that I am willing to admit it anyway.  I took this picture yesterday morning and I am still giddy with excitement.  I think the glow of the morning sun and the focus, angle and colors of this photo make it one of my favorite to date.  You may or may not agree, but when I look at it, I'm actually surprised that I took this picture.  I don't feel that I have the an "eye" for the shot like some people do, so it usually leads me to take several shots of one particular picture.  This time, I only took two, and I got what I wanted on picture number one, and erased number two.  I'm just so excited that I have to share it.  I feel that I finally hit the nail on the coffin for my perfect walleye release shot.  The low angle of the sun, the water dripping and the size of this above average walleye made it perfect in my mind.  I hope you enjoy it too!
