Look out Midwest! The West Coast may just be the best place to hook a record class walleye, as evidenced by this 20.23-pound new Washington State record ‘eye caught by John Grubenhoff of Pasco, WA.
The 32-inch monster is the first walleye over 20 pounds caught in the United States since 1988 and only missed the IGFA All Tackle World Record for the species by less than 5 pounds — a fish taken way back in 1960 at Old Hickory Lake, TN.
I’ll bet this has some marble eye fans in the middle of the country dreaming of…all things…a road trip to the Coast!
