Weather Cools…Fishing Gets Hotter

Makok Master Angler Aug 2011This past week at Makokibatan Lodge we welcomed the Westerhoek group from Ontario. This father-son group had a great trip catching dozens of good Walleye in the 23 to 25-inch range. Steve and his son from Ann Arbor, Michigan were also in camp this past week and they, too, reeled in their share of nice Walleyes in the 20 and 24 inch class. They had an eventful day down river with Eli catching a lot of Walleye, Northern Pike, and some very hefty Speckled Brook Trout – the biggest being 20 inches in length.

Mark Jensen had the only Master Angler Walleye of the week, a nice 26-1/2-inch Walleye. (See photo right.) Mr. Jensen and his two daughters also enjoyed a day down river with our veteran First Nation guide Eli Baxter catching and releasing many nice Walleye and some beautiful Brookies as well.
