We have lots of nice pictures to share after this past week of fishing. These guys certainly earned it – with most days featuring rain, lots of clouds, and a fair amount of wind. I heard rumors of heaters being used in the big cabin in attempt to dry out all the soaked rain gear. One guy equated it to being in a sauna – 85 degrees with 100% humidity.
The cooler air temps have keep the water temperature unseasonably low. Guys were marking water in the upper 50’s all week. The water temperature dropped throughout the week, but then climbed up a bit again when the sun finally came out on Wednesday.
On the walleye front, we saw excellent numbers early in the week. Loads of eater sized fish caught and released below the falls. Action was steady on both lakes, with several fish in the 19-22″ range caught. Here is Alex, with a nice and healthy looking 19″ walleye:
And Mel, who was VERY pleased to see the sun come out on Wednesday. He special ordered some for us!
It proved to be a little difficult to get some of the upper 20″ walleye, but on Thursday John and son Jim managed to bring in a 24.25″ and a 24.125″, respectively, to finish 1st and 2nd in the big fish pot:
Some nice fish all around, guys!
