We have finally emerged from our week long stay in a wind and rain infested cloud bubble here at Striker’s Point Lodge. We bring great news with us. Guests visiting at Striker’s tallied eight more master angler fish last week. All should be given credit for persevering through some very tough, wet, and cold conditions.
The Clemmons group out of Illinois mixed things up with 3 master walleye and 4 master northerns. “Oats”, who is sometimes referred to as Scott Sanders, had two personal bests on the same day when he landed a 27.5″ walleyewalleye and a whopping 43″ northern. The walleye came on a live sucker rig down river and the northern came while trolling the trusty silver Williams Whitefish in the narrows. Oats added to his pile of trophies with yet another Williams caught 41″ beauty. Boat partner Chris Clemmons produced an enormous 29″ walleye at the same location also on a live sucker rig. They were two of the largest walleye I’ve seen in a good while. Chris’s brother Brad heard the news and had his boat down to the same location later that evening. Brad also tied into a 29″ walleye. Joining the group were brother John and Drew for their first trip up to Striker’s Point. These guys had a good knack for finding large pike. Drew landed a 45″ monster while brother John boasted 42″ and 46″ behemoths. Listen to a trip summary from this group of great anglers by clicking here.
Tim and Loni Meininger finished off their week with much success. Everywhere these two went the walleye turned on. I told you about Tim’s 42″ pike last week. That was enough pike for him for one week. These two had fun exploring the lake and catching huge numbers of walleye doing it.
The Shiree group had a longer than expected stay due to the foul weather. These guys thoroughly enjoyed hitting their favourite hotspots all week and having great shore lunches daily. We look forward to seeing them back here in just three short weeks.
