Default A fishing year in review. Pic Heavy.

Thought it would be fun to have folks post up their “year in review” fishing pictures.

What the heck was in that pike's belly? Water boatmen? Maybe it's just the pic, but they look huge.

Looks like dragon fly nymphs, but that is just a guess.

Giant water beetles it looks like. I had a couple swim up the hole the other day.

They are dragon fly nymphs. 2 out of the 3 I cleaned that day were stuffed full of them. Early spring and I think they pick them off as the nymphs climb the reeds from the bottom of the lake.

You got some nice walleye, that is one species I did pretty poorly on this year(for size anwyays).

Definitely looks like dragonfly nymphs in that pikes stomach.


I had a pretty good year with I believe 10 new personal bests and a few gooders.
