A stringer of fish

Family Lake, and more specifically Walleye Wall, was good to us today. The fishing since our arrival on Friday has been great; we have caught and thrown back countless fish – walleye, northern pike and perch. But, today the kitchen needed us to bring in fish. Oh, the pressure.

So, after breakfast, saying goodbye to the family we’d flown in with, seeing three planes come and go, tidying up the cabin and the like, we set out for Walleye Wall at about 10:30, a location south of the lodge where we’d not fished before. What a morning. Suffice it to say, our reputation is in tact. We’d caught lots of fish and brought in our day’s limit before lunch. The walleye limit, by the way, is four fish per person per day, a keep-able size being from 14 to 18 inches. Anything else goes back in the water.

The young fellow, Jonathan -- from Newfoundland, who takes care of the fish cleaning shack and keeps the boats in order took this photo for us. A few of the fish didn’t make it completely into the frame, but you get the idea.
