2011— Week 24

Wow, what an eventful week with a total of 2 Lake Trout Trophies and 14 Pike Trophies being caught! Not only all the Trophies made this week special, there were two other extraordinary events: Leon Gervin broke the Lodge record for Pike with a huge fish of 125 cm! His mother, 90 year old June Gervin also caught a very big Pike of 110 cm, this is quite an achievement! Pike fishing was awesome and we are pleased to welcome the following anglers to our Trophy Club: Scott Rodehorst (110cm), Tim Drasler, (105 cm, 107 cm), John Jennings (111 cm, 108 cm), Rick Linquist (111 cm, 108 cm, 106 cm), Butch Balzer (106 cm, 106 cm, 105 cm), June Gervin (110 cm), Leon Gervin (125 cm), Kevin Grunwald (106 cm). Fishing for Lake Trout was fantastic everywhere we fished as well. We are very happy to report the first Lake Trout Trophies of this season: Tim Drasler caught a Trophy of 104 cm and John Jennings a Trophy of 103 cm. Congratulations to all of you, good job! Besides the Trophies our guests caught many other big Lake Trout up to 90 cm. The Rainbow Trout were very active and our guests landed several nice fish as big as 55 cm. Quite a few Grayling were caught too and fishing should get even better with lower water levels. The week started with nice weather but windy conditions. Then we had mainly cloudy skies with no wind and one day with rain. The rain was welcomed as our forests became very dry with a high risk of fires. Awesome week with many happy guests!
