Glad you guys got yours! Upper Midwest, eh? Not you-know-where?

It's just a habit - if I catch a fish in someone else's 'hood or spot, I don't post the location myself even if the person doesn't mind.

You should post it so people know where to go.  Everyone should get one.  Even if people want to eat them it's a better fate than being left on the bank.  That peninsula gets covered in them in late winter/ early spring.

Great catch.  Love the lips on them.

Congrats Graceclaw, that's darn impressive. I don't care how much location help a person gets, when there's a species known for being so tough it's a great catch. Iowa is the hidden gem for this kind of catch.
