The largest Northern Pike Caught and Released was 42" by Ron Johnson. Ron and Judy have also been visiting us for many years and are both enjoying recent retirements. Ron is the 1999 winner of our Titus Trophy for the Largest Northern Pike released.
Below are the 5 largest Northern Pike and 5 Largest Walleyes released in 1999. Besides thanking all of these tremendous sports people for releasing these large fish we will also be presenting them with a 10% discount on their next vacation at our Wilderness Island Resort. Releasing large fish is important for 2 reasons. They are usually females which means they can produce a lot more fish, and they may be genetically larger which helps increase the average size of the fish population.
Every year we give away 40 10% vacation discounts to our guests who participate in our Catch and Release program. 10 go to the people above who released the largest Northern Pike and Walleye. The other 30 go to people who are randomly drawn from the 100's of entries in our Catch and Release log. Every time guest releases a Walleye over 16" or releases a Northern Pike over 24", they are eligible to enter that fish in our Catch and Release log book. The 2 red squirrels which were relocated from the Duquette cabin to Timberwolf Island do not count.
Below are our 1999 random recipients of 10% Catch and Release discounts on their next vacations.
For this draw we separate all entries into their respective weeks, draw 1 entry from each week, the remaining entries are combined and we draw the balance of the winners from the remaining entries. We thank everyone who contributed to the ongoing fishing quality of Lake Wabatongushi.
