2008 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


2008 Catch and Release Fishing Awards

Trophy Northern Pike Fishing Jeff BosWe had lots of large Walleye and Northern Pike caught and released again last summer. We really appreciate this beacause all the largest fish are big females that lay a lot of eggs. Releasing them makes a huge difference in future fishing.

The largest Northern Pike released was by Jeff Bos, the 38 1/2" beauty you see him holding a right. Jeff has been coming up for fishing vacations with us since he was a kid and it is great that someone who enjoys fishing so much caught and released such a great prize.

The person who released the largest walleye last summer was Chris Schneider of the Buley group. They also have been visiting us for fishing vacations for a long time. Chis is posing tbelow with his beautiful 30" Walleye just before he released her.

Trophy Walleye Fishing Chris SchneiderBoth Chris and Jeff will be receiving trophies for releasing the largest fish last year as well as a 10% discount on their next vacation with us. We appreciate their dedication to long-term fishing quality. Releasing big fish is one of the best things you can do for future fishing generations and, if you do wan't a wall mount, graphite replicas actually look more real than a real mount and last forever instead of deteriorating after a decade or so.

Large fish are almost exclusively females. With Walleye especially, it is now generally accepted that the larger the female is, the more successful spawner she is. They do not necessarily produce as many eggs per pound but their eggs are larger and healthier with a much higher viability, hatch success, and health. They also tend to be genetically larger which increases the growth rate of the population. So releasing the big ones is the best thing to do to ensure great future fishing. And taking a picture of your Tophy Walleye or Trophy Northern Pike gives you something for your wallete, and our website and a picture allows you to have a replica made if you do want a trophy fish on your wall.

For this draw we separate all entries into their respective weeks, draw 2 entries from each week we are open, the remaining entries are combined and we draw the balance of the winners from the entries for the whole year. We thank everyone who contributed to the ongoing fishing quality of Lake Wabatongushi.
