This is one of those stories about the one that got away.
My brother in-law and I had just about given up trying to get a keeper walleye but one the third last day of our two week vacay he landed this one.
Cheers could be heard around the lake as we lower the fish back into the water on the stringer. Fresh walleye tonight!

We continued on till about eight pm and add three small mouth to the nights catch.
As we started to pack things up and head for the cottage Jeff reached over to pull the fish in and with a little action from the fish this what was left.

So I think it will be dinner for a musky or pike with four fish tied together.

Well, that sucks. It's hard enough to get a keeper on Nip let alone to loose.

That sucks. At least you know there was not much you could do. Reminds me of a buddy who put the fish on stringer, dropped it into the water, to only realize the end of the rope is not tied anywhere. That fish swam away with a heavy stringer on it lollll

Definitely a bummer... I remember one night, coming in late, both of us too tired to filet, tied the stringer off the end of the dock thinking wed clean in the morning, only to wake up to 6 walleye with nothing left on them but the head and skeletons, presuming a turtle, mink or some critter, last time i ever did that

Coons are good stringer stealers.
