MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO)
— There is something that nearly every angler who’s heading out to the fishing opener will dream about: the state record walleye.

Thirty-two days later, the record remains unchallenged.

On the Seagull River in 1979, LeRoy Chiovitte caught the 17.5 pound walleye, which was 35.8 inches long and 21 inches around its belly.

Chiovitte shared the picture with Sagonto Lodge last year. They were kind enough to send WCCO-TV the picture Friday night.
