Monster Walleye For A Six Year Old Boy!

Three generations of family here – Great Grandpa, Jack Collis, Grandpa, Gary Collis, Grandsons, Gage Tafoya, 8 years old and Tyler Tafoya, 6 years old. The guys went fishing one evening; trolling the back waters of the Mississippi River in Wisconsin for walleye with crank baits. When the little guy, Tyler, starts hollering he has a fish!! He struggled and struggled and reeled and reeled….with Great Grandpa Jack holding on to the safety strap of Tyler’s life jacket, Tyler was able to get the walleye close enough to the boat for Grandpa to net it. Tyler says it was a lot of hard work but he was sure glad he had his favorite fishing hat. Grandpa said there was a fish out there with his name on it and he caught it! The walleye weighed in at 6 lbs 13 oz and was 25 1/2 inches long. This ‘monster’ walleye for Tyler is literally the talk viagra 50mg of the town here. Everyone is asking about how he did it and how big it was. Ty is learning from his Grandpa too, he won’t tell where or what color the crank bait was that he used.
