“I am lucky enough to have fished on Ogoki since I was ten (See photo- Bob Funk and Temius Nate at Ogoki Outpost in 1975). The weather this year was fantastic: warm, lots of sunshine, no rain and the winds manageable every day. It would be hard to order better weather, but I can’t remember a more challenging year to bring two walleyes back to camp for dinner. I don’t believe the weather caused the difficulty as the problem wasn’t a lack of fish; each of our three boats netted 50+ walleye a day. There were many spots where virtually every cast would hook a walleye until all the commotion would draw in a big northern that would bust the school. Some of those 40+ inch northern got more than they bargained for when the hook of the jig set before the line was cut. The problem was that virtually all of the walleye were more than 18 inches as most ran 20- 23. We would actually have to hunt for schools of smaller fish for dinner. I can only wish for the same “problem” next year.”
We are so thankful for the support from guests like Bob, who keep coming back year after year!
