The Ijams party came out of the Cobham River today. The first thing I ask the guys on the dock, Did you enjoy yourself? The second, Did you catch any big ones? What do you think the answer was today?
Fish like these are a common site on our trophy lakes. Please remember that these fish are in the lake. You need to find where they live and catch them. They do not just jump in the boat. But thanks to our guests who have believed in our conservation policy, they are in the lake, only to grow larger.
This was the first time the Ijams guys have fished with us but have had a fair amount of experience fishing the north. Using their depth finder they were able to locate the fish with ease and caught some monsters. They had a few big pike hit their walleyes, one hit a walleye on the stringer and another totally engulfed a second walleye as it was being brought to the boat!
As for the walleyes, you might say they did well…
We have lots of trophy walleye, but generally 31-32 inch waleye are the maximum size caught in the boreal lakes of NW Ontario…. until this week. Tom caught a 36 inch walleye on the Cobham River!! Here is the picture to prove it!!! They estimated it had to be at least 15 pounds! Remeber it is not good for the fish to be weighed, if you fish with us please measure your fish only before releasing them.
