Jim Castner and Jim Kalina together have been coming to Black Bear Lodge for a combined 80 years. Jim Kalina is our longest returning guest, he has made an amazing 48 trips! I would like to tell you how many fish they have caught, but it would take way to long to come up with that total. They are both excellent fishermen when it comes to any species that Red Lake has, but typically they are after big walleyes. This year was no disappointment for the boys. They caught a lot of "over" walleyes last week. I believe their biggest was 26 inches with many in the 21-24 inch range. They also boated a few nice pike was well.
We always enjoy their company every year and we look forward to another week with the 'Jim's'.
