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.
