The Legend of Big John

Sung to the tune of “Big John”….

Yes, Big John has big feet. Yes, he has big hands. And yes, those big hands can make large 26″ walleyes look small.

Big John was new to bottom bouncing, but he picked up the technique well and caught a boat load of slot walleyes on the last day we were up at VBL.
Next year we will teach him how to hold a fish for a photo.

  1. Poor John! You guys should at least chip in and buy him his own rubber glove!

    Nice fish John-Boy. It's good that Professor Bill was guiding you and showing you his secret knowledge.

On behalf of the Boyes Group, I would like to pass on our sincere thanks for hosting the Muskie Madness Week and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at VBL and had a great time!! This was our 7th year on Eagle Lake and we have stayed at a few other lodges but VBL takes the cake hands down! You can definitely count us in for next year. I’m happy to see you post some of my pics, they turned out well. Thanks again Gord for a wonderful week of fishing and your stellar hospitality, you run a first class operation, we look forward to seeing you next year!
