Master Angler Count Reaches All Time High

Krista Cheeseman, Wilderness NorthLast year at this time we had the same headline. We had reached 100 Master Anglers for the first time in our history.
This year that number is a whopping 139 Master Anglers and about five more weeks in the season.

  • 93 Northern Pike – 40 inches or longer.
  • 46 Walleyes – 26 inches plus.

And this week those catching levels continue despite the “summer” weather.  Let’s start at Zig Zag. The Carlson groups from Iowa had two big Walleye over 26 inches, reported by Dan and his son Jake – and one four-hour period where the group of four caught and released over 500 Walleye.
