I have 5 between 29" and 29 7/8ths" with none touching that 30 inch mark yet. Heaviest one I caught was last fall...a really thick, fat 28.5" that I'm sure was over 10. Have never put a scale to any of them. Still searching for that 30"+++...maybe this is the year?!

31.5, 30.5, and a 30 all in the same night a few years ago. I would have liked to hook into on of those the last two days in the tourney on Leech, but nothing over 25.75

30" and 30.25" both caught on Gull Lake last May. Nice fat fish that are hopefully still swimming in the lake.

I got thin 28.5" that only weighed in at 6.2 from Mille Lacs. My heaviest was a 28" that was probably 8.5 from a small creek in the fall. I got 2 27.5" 'eyes on the same trip on the same spot in Canada last summer.

Still need my first 30"

30.5 is my PB so far I am waiting to catch that bonafide fish in the teens still which I may spend the rest of my life chasing.

27.5" 8 1/4 lbs. ice fishing the night before my 29th birthday, that was a while ago... It was the first big fish I ever caught had no camera & was by myself, so I took it home to show people. Didn't actually think it was as big as it was, when I found out I hung it on the wall. The next one will have to be 30" or awfully close, depends on the situation.

Put a 26" back last summer, but have not caught a lot of big fish in my life. Slow start for me this year.
