Nephew's first Erie walleye

    My baby brother just got married this weekend and I had my older brother's family from Lancaster as well as my other younger brother staying with me and I had the opportunity to take my brothers Dave and Thadd and my nephew Davey out on Thursday.  The fishing was slow on the East side, but we managed this 8# 4oz 'eye around 11am.  It was the only walleye of the day.  This was Davey's first trip out on Erie, and was his first walleye and largest freshwater fish ever (He had caught a monster mahi mahi in Mexico last year).  It was great spending time with my brothers and nephew last week, but the look on his face when the net dropped on the floor of the boat was icing on the cake!
