Fun was had by all that that participated in the Wild Eagle Lodge Walleye School this past weekend. Saturday was a brutal day on the water with wind gusts of 40 mph, which made the fishing really difficult. A few walleye were caught. Our fishing team from Ohio (Dave and Bob) landed a beautiful 30″ pike. On Sunday the weather conditions improved and it was a really nice day on the water. More walleye were caught, including a 25″ beauty when Pat (Iowa) and his sister Barb (Colorado) were in the boat with RFRG Outdoors guide, Muskie Matt. The foursome from Wisconsin (Nadine, Gary, Don and Kathy) found a nice walleye hole as well. Bob was thrilled to land a day-two tiger muskie with beautiful markings.
We couldn’t have asked for a nicer group of folks to spend the weekend with. At breakfast this morning, contact information was exchanged as fish tales from the weekend were shared. When the school started we were all strangers to one another. When it was time to say goodbye hugs and well wishes were exchanged by everyone. There was talk about doing it all over again next year. That’s what it’s all about!
A special thanks to all of the participants, the guides, and Melissa for her fantastic meals.
We’ll be posting more pictures as they are received from the participants.
Our 2011 walleye school is scheduled for May 6-8. Please check our website for more information.
