Hell Creek Marina (on Facebook) posted a pretty awesome picture of Steve Rau whom just caught his biggest walleye to date at 4.2lbs and 22 1/4 inches!
He was apparently fishing at 25-30 ft using a tip-up and a minnow at Hell Creek Bay. They ended their post with this:
Thank you. Steve, for letting us post your picture. The fishing is picking up here at Hell Creek, and we look forward to seeing everyone out there on the ice.
So, there’s just one of the many reasons for heading to Fort Peck for some ice fishing! Excellent work, Steve!
