Grayslake Highschool Group

The Grayslake High School group caught a lot of nice fish this week. Lots of really
\big pike and plenty of walleyes for shore lunch and to take home. Great job boys.
And thanks to Pete for organizing such a good group. We sure hope to see you
guys up here again soon. Just make sure you bring enough #3 mepps to go around.

Josie's first walleye of the year

Josie wanted to try her luck fishing on the main dock with the Cargola boys tonight.
She did quite well, catching 3 perch and 2 walleyes. She even held the fish all by herself!!!

My first walleye of the year!!!

"Look Jeremiah, this is a walleye".

Lots of wind = lots of fish.

We woke up this morning to some strong winds coming from the northeast
and it kept on blowing throughout the day. I predicted we would see another
40" + pike and some nice walleyes. Well, the 40"er was caught before noon, and
the picture below is a snapshot of how the walleyes were biting.

The biggest one is 26".

44" pike - times 2

Yep, we have a new pike leader. Actually, to be completely accurate, we have co-leaders. Ken Thorgesen and Roland Bauer both caught 44" pike today. Ken's pike was caught in Golden Arm and Roland's was caught right in our bay. And once again I am waiting on the pictures :) I will post them as soon as I can. Fishing remains good but not great. The warm sunny weather is making fishing tougher than it should be. Although, there seems to be no shortage of eater size walleye, jumbo perch, and lunker pike. If we would ever get a stretch of rainy and windy weather, I think we may see record number of fish being caught. Anyone know how to do a rain dance?

New Walleye Leader

Ken Thogenson is now our new leader in the largest walleye category. He caught a 27 3/4" walleye.
Unfortunately he did not get a picture of it. He wanted to release it as soon as possible to ensure it
would not be harmed. Great job Ken!!

Fishing was a bit slower today overall do to the fact that we had clear blue skies and very
little wind. We still saw some nice stringers of walleye and some more big pike, though.
(still waiting on some pictures)

Tim Green with a 33" laker

The picture above is Tim's final shot at being our Lake Trout
champ for 2013. He caught this one on his way to Red Lake before heading home. We love the effort. In his words...
"It was a great 'dessert' to the week. Vic opened the week with a trout before we arrived at camp and I closed with one on the way out. Perfect bookends to the week."

Great job Tim. We are already looking forward to seeing
you again next summer. Thanks for another great week.

Double rainbow in the bay

Happy Fathers Day

Well the new groups who came in yesterday needed little help finding the fish.
Just about everyone got some fish last night. Dave, his son Tyler, and Adam
got their limit of walleyes before noon this morning without leaving our bay.
Now they are setting up for a shore lunch. That is what I would call
a happy fathers day.
