Trophy Walleye FishingLargest Walleye Released in 2009 a Beauty

Walt Canon had been hearing about our fishing lodge from his friend Ron Kokelaar for years, so last year Walt decided to join Ron. They were having really great fishing, landing a lot of Walleyes and quite a few nice Northern Pike through their stay. Then they topped off their vacation with this really beautiful 30 1/2 inch Walleye that they quickly released after taking this picture. Walt said it came almost all the way to the boat like a heavy log, then went crazy with multiple hard runs where they thought they would lose the fish, and when Ron netted her the little silver Mepps slipped out of her mouth. This Walleye is probably a prime female spawner about 28 years old.

Joe Wojt has been fishing here for many years and it was his turn to fish with "the newbie" of their decades old fishing group, Jim. They were on the north side of Timber Wolf Island and got into some weeds, when Joe noticed a small black leech in the tangled. Trophy Walleye FishingWas this a "good omen"? Joe put the leech on the spoon he was using and a few minutes later got the "Strike". She made three or four good runs, then rolled as she was getting tired.She was a little large for the net so Joe reached down and grabbed her behind the gill plates. Great fish, 37 inches long, about 17 years old and will probably be laying lots of eggs next spring. What a thrill!


Kim Colby caught her largest Walleye ever, and the 3rd largest Walleye caught and released in 2009. When Kim's husband Mike asked what she had on, she told him, "Just a pike... wait... oh, I think its a log." Then the Walleye took off! Around the boat... under the boat... then finally by the boat. Thats when Kim finally saw her. "Its a huge walleye; get the net!" Shes 29 1/2 inches long and between ten to 11 pounds! Shes probably 26 years old. Shes still out in the lake to live many more years. Wow!

Erik Born not only did it, he did it twice. Two 28" Walleyes caught and released on the same 4 day vacation at our resort. Erik and his father Rick have been vacationing at our resort since Erik was about half the size he is now. This was a really great Walleye year and Erik caught and released his first 28" Walleye the second day of their vacation which really highlighted their vacation. Then Erik and Rick were supposed to fly out at 11:00 am on the last day of their vacation but their float plane was delayed because of early morning fog, so they decided to fish for a few more hours. They did pretty well, including catching & releasing a 23 inch Walleye, then, about 30 feet off the dock coming back into their cabin, Erik tied into another big Walleye. This one fought very hard right off the bat and it took about 15 minutes to get in. It was another 28 inch Walleye. Erik and Rick took this picture and quickly released it as well, then went and finished packing to come back to the lodge to catch the float plane home. Erik says it is just luck, being at the right place at the right time. Eriks father Rick and I are not so sure, It takes a great feel and presentation to keep catching such great fish.

Double Northern Pike Trophy FishingDouble Pike

On August 24th fishing in Dibbens Bay, Ed McIntosh caught a 15 inch Northern Pike. While reeling in a larger Northern Pike swallowed the smaller Pike up to the gills. We were able to land both fish, and both were returned to the lake and swam away.

Clam FishingTrolling Too Slow

Larry Campbell may need to pick up the speed a little. Going slow enough to catch a clam may need some reconsideration. Larry did enter this 4-1/2" clam into our Catch & Release Log Book. It was a tough release too. Larry had to use a screw driver to pry the clam open enough to get his jig out. Larry is a good sport and provided humerous dinner conversation that evening about his unique Catch & Release.
