Kimmy Plaine of Hallock, Minn., released this 27½-inch walleye on Lake of the Woods.

Here’s how her husband, Corey, describes the encounter:

“While fishing intently, and not having much luck, I looked over at my wife who not surprisingly had her rod in the holder and was on her phone. I watched the rod bending and dancing, and asked Kimmy if she was going to catch that fish. She looked up, calmly finished typing her text, and then grabbed her rod. Lucky for her we had the drag set fairly light, as the walleye took off with her crawler. She finally won the battle and landed this 27½-inch walleye from 25 feet of water.”
