2000 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


Catch and Release Fishing 2000

The Largest Walleye Caught and Released in 2000 was 30" long and was caught by Wade Stamper in the Van Sickel Party. Wade had a very hard time catching her and she was also difficult to release because of the stress. We thank Wade for his sportsmanlike efforts.

The largest Northern Pike Caught and Released was 40" long and was caught by Don Cline. Don has been visiting us with Dick Liddicoat and his group for over 25 years. They are a fun group and we esspecially appreciate the fine singing. Dick and Don have been heavily involved in Barbershop Quartet singing for as long as we can remember.

A Notable 1st this year for Bill Brown. We have many guests who have hooked or snagged rocks before but Bill is the first person I know of to have actually landed one. Congratulations on your 5.75" Rock Fish. I don't think his wife Michele has any intention of competing with him in this league.

Below are the 5 largest Northern Pike and 5 Largest Walleyes released in 2000. 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 are 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.
