1998 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 1998

Catch & Release Trophy
For the sports persons who released the
Largest Walleye and Largest Northern Pike

1998 was a very good year for large walleye releases. Our winner this year is Russ Meyer who released a 29.5" Walleye last spring. This is Russ's second time winning our Gentle Fisherman trophy. Russ spends a lot of time on the water both here, his 17th straight year, and back home in Wisconsin. He is a very talented fisherman who firmly believes in the benefits of Catch and Release and slot sizes in Lake Wabatongushi. Every year he says the fishing keeps getting better and better.. He, along with his buddy Dan Colligan, released numerous Walleye and Pike back into the lake.
Tom Nelson was the winner of our Titus trophy for the largest Northern Pike released. He released a 38" Northern Pike in late August. This was Tom's first year here with his wife Melissa. They were expecting a baby in a few months. Tom's fishing prowess and Melissa's father Paul Knuth's expert guiding on the lake landed this prize fish. Tom, and his wife Melissa recently had a baby boy whom they have named Paul after Melissa's father. He will undoubtably be a fisherman with his ancestry.
This year we would also like to recognize the people who released the next 4 largest Walleyes and Northern Pikes. They, along with the winners of our trophys. will receive a 10% discount on their next visit to our resort.

Walleye Northern Pike
Greg Conley - 27" Tim Meyer - 37"
Marcia Hendricks - 26" Earl Bronson - 36"
Cecelia Cain - 26" Nelse Sharer - 36"
Kerry Glaesmer - 26" Bob Fisher - 35"

Greg Conley actually had to release that 27" Walleye twice. It was right back on the hook within 10 minutes of the first release.

As a special mention, some of you would remeber a chimunk who had elevatd itself to pet status with the help of some of our nature loving guests, not mentioning any names, Len and Jana. One of our groups designed a method of capturing this friendly creature using a rod case and a trap door if only to scare the bejesus out of Russ Polena. You may remeber him from our phot Album, the guy who lost a fishing bet the year before and had to wear baby doll pajamas to the lodge. Jerrry Urbaniak recieves the catch and release award for releasing a 7.5" squirrel back on the island. We love the plans for your trap, Jerry and I'll buy you a drink next time if you release it on another island next time.
