Catch and Release 1995
New Catch & Release Award
We introduced a new trophy last year and we would like to congratulate
our first winner of the Titus Trophy. Sue Paniwozik caught and
released a 42" Northern Pike last summer and that was the
largest Pike released in 1995. So Sue, congratulations on being
the first winner of the Titus Trophy for the largest Northern
Pike released each year. Sue wanted us to give Paul congratulations
for netting it. She said it was a team effort.
Sue and Paul had a graphite replica made of the fish for their
cottage. Graphite replicas are made using the measurements of
the fish and photos. The are far superior to a real mount in quality
with the added advantage being that you get to return the fish
to the water to create more fish. The largest fish are generally
the best spawners as well as being genetically larger so they
produce larger fish.
Another person who truly deserves recognition is Dick King.
He released a 29" Walleye last year which made him our 1995
winner of the Gentle Fisherman Award for the Largest Walleye released
Dick is a very knowledgeable fisherman who knows many of the hot
spots in the lake and has caught a number of large fish over the
years. But this was the largest Walleye he had ever released and
he said it felt great. It gave him a great fight, he got a some
good pictures and he hopes to catch it again sometime when it
is even bigger.
