Roode comes up with a Jumbo walleye
Once again a new leader emerges in the race to become LFC Fisherman of the Year.
On May 20th, on the club trip to Jumbo Reservoir north of Sterling, Jim Roode caught a 25" walleye -with catch and measurement verified by Norm Englebert, past president and normally a trustworthy sort.
The 25" Walleye represent a little over 96% of the Colorado Master Angler Award (MMA) criteria for the species.
Currently in second place in the club contest for biggest fish of the year, with a 22" rainbow at almost 92% of MAA, is Jim Clune. In third place with a 17 3/4" rainbow, nearly 74% MAA, is Tom Boesh.
It's starting to get interesting.
