Good fishing, good weather, and fewer mayflies all contributed to the catch and release of two of the biggest Walleye of the season at Makokibatan Lodge. Henry from Iowa, a long time returning guest, guided by Eli Baxter, had a fabulous week including a monster 31-inch Walleye caught by Eli, plus Henry’s 30-incher. These are the two biggest Walleye caught at Makok so far this season.
We also had the Swann’s, from Thunder Bay in camp. This husband and wife duo caught lots of Walleye as Kevin hauled in two Master Angler size Walleye (a 27-inch and 28-inch) over the four days. The Jaqua group from Ohio – a foursome who netted plenty of Walleye as well as some fair sized-Pike, all while enjoying the great scenery, shore lunches, and weather. They were also guided by Eli and claimed they couldn’t have done it without him. One Master Angler from the group, Cam, reeled in a nice 28-inch Walleye on a jig with a white twister tail. The Carrol party from Illinois, another husband wife duo, thoroughly enjoyed their stay with us catching many nice sized Walleye – averaging between 20-22-inch- the biggest being 25-inches, just short of a Master Angler.
