For years I have gone this time of year on a search for a 10lb+ walleye with Capt Gary De La Rosa, www.GoldenEyeCharters.com on the St Joe River, Berrian Springs Michigan. Check out site to see heated rig & photos of lunkers.
Gary has 3 eyes this month over ten pounds with an 11 pounder landed this week Tuesday. I fished with him a week back on 12/9 first cast produced a 24'' eye along with 7 other keepers for the day. I'll fish it with him 3 to 4 X again over the next few months til the first week in March. It so happens I have a outing planned with him this Sunday 12/21 and one of my fishing partners may not make be able to make it.

I will depart at approx 1AM, 2hr drive with the 1 hour time change arrives me in Berrian Springs at approx 4:30 purchase a $7 day license at the Safeway and meet Gary at 5:00 AM fish til noon. Cost is $115 +$10 tip +$7 lic +$13 gas approx. $150. Be back in Park Ridge area by Sunday 2:00PM
