December, and the Cleveland harbor is full of boats


With less than two days left of the seventh annual Lake Erie Walleye Fall Brawl, anglers crammed the Cleveland harbor, hoping to catch a big one.

Matthew Branigan hooked a 14.97-pound walleye Friday morning, the biggest ever in the competition. But that doesn’t mean the contest is over.

Fishermen came out on a sunny afternoon, some for the second time that day. They planned to stay after dark. And they’ll be back Saturday too, until the competition ends Sunday at 8 a.m.
