1996 Canadian Fishing for Walleye, Northern Pike at Fishing Resort in Northern Ontario Canada

Canadian Walleye & Northern Pike Fishing Wilderness Vacations in Northern Ontario Canada by Float Plane or Train


Fishing In 1996

A Master Angler

We all knew he was good. Over the years he has caught and released a lot of nice fish. He fishes hard and he knows the Wabatongushi Lake very well but we were still surprised when Russ Meyer caught a 29" Walleye and a 43.5" Northern Pike within a day of each other. Even considering the prime fishing conditions the biggest factor is Russ's exceptional prowess as a fisherman. Having passed his 70th birthday he has a lot of experience fishing. It gives us great pleasure in awarding the Titus Award for the largest Pike caught and released and the Gentle Fisherman Award for the largest Walleye caught and released to Russ Meyer for 1996.


We have another angler we would like to mention. She is already an exceptional Northern Pike fisherperson at 10 years old. Lauren Bye really tried hard to catch the largest Pike this year and came close by releasing a 42" Northern in August. Both her and her brother Travis love Pike fishing with their parents and they released quite a number of other Northern Pike between 24" and 40".
Also, Judy Wagner's 38" Northern Pike made her week and the rest of her group jealous.
We also have people like Russ and Jane Stevens, Len & Jana Federer, the 3 generations fo Bowens and Tom Quaderers group to name a few who would certainly give Babe Winkleman and Bob Izumi some competition if they ever decided to go professional.

Catch & Release - 1996 Winners

We had an extremely good catch & release year again. As most of you know for the past several years we have been asking you to record all of the Walleyes you released over 16" and all the Northern Pike you released over 24" in our Catch & Release log. From this log we randomly draw names for winners of discounted vacations in the following year. We also use this log to determine the winners of our trophies for the largest pike and walleye released.
We would like to congratulate the following people for being winners in our catch & release contest this year and we would like to thank everyone who released their fish last summer whether you logged them or not.
