Sam Oddo and cousin Craig Jeroue were after walleyes on the Canadian side of the Detroit River . Naturally then, when something "monstrous" hit, they thought about cutting the line. "I didn't want to fool around with it," Oddo said. "I figured it would take too long to reel it in." But they already had some good eating-size walleyes in the live well, so they decided, What the heck? "When we finally landed it . . . we looked at each other and said, 'What is it?'" It was a 20-pound wiper that will undoubtedly be the new Canadian record, obliterating the old 7-pound mark.
