Group Name: Faust

Guest Comments: Good fishing all days/great fishing most days. Significant number of big fish (dozens of walleye over 20" - 8-10 over 24", largest 26". Largest northern 40", several in the high 30's. We like to "hunt" the fish so regularly left holes where we caught 20+ fish to "hunt" some more. One of the best fishing lakes we've been on (over 35 trips). Great bass! Large and feisty. Fished all areas including between the rapids (which were not tough to navigate - if you studied them before the trip). Caught fish in every part of the lake.

Dates: 7/28 - 8/1/2014

Group Name: Weimer

Guest Comments: The largest fish caught was a 30" lake trout, 2 - 35" pike, and a dozen 17-18" bass. Countless spots of sunken rocks are home to thousands of bass that kept us entertained when trolling was unsuccessful. The most pleasant surprise was the mystery fish caught. In total, around 50 trout, close to 40 northerns, and too many smallmouth bass to count. Overall, an extremely successful trip. Thank you guys so much!
