Master Angler Walleyes Add Up – Already !

Makok June 8 2011, Wilderness NorthOpening week at Makokibatan Lodge was an awesome one. Water levels are good, compared to last year’s low, low levels.

Nicolas, part of the Gentile group of Montreal, caught and released a nice 27 inch Walleye on a jig and twister tail. Issac Nate guided the group on a “river trip” where they enjoyed outstanding Brook Trout angling as well. On that trip, Sam got a beautiful 22 inch Brookie. Also in camp last week was a father son duo, Dan and David, of Ohio. David joined the Master Angler fraternity with a 27 and a 26.5 inch Walleye and Dan got a 27 and a 26 inch Walleye as well, all on white or chartreuse jig heads with minnows. The Golichowski brothers, of Michigan had a successful trip as well. Greg reeled in a 28 inch Walleye on a silver and blue Thunder Stick crank bait. Ralph, of Kalamazoo, Michigan caught a trophy 27 inch Walleye on a yellow jig and minnow at “the cut.” Scott wrangled a 26 inch Walleye on a Hot ‘n’ Tot Crank bait in the alley. Roy reeled in a chubby 27 inch Walleye on a yellow jig head with a minnow.

By the way, senior First Nation guide legend Eli Baxter is returning for another season. All in all, the first week way up on the 51st parallel was a great one and its clear the trophy Walleye are plentiful again in 2011.
