Well Double J and I were at the Governor's Fishing Opener in Grand Rapids, and early Saturday morning found ourselves out on Pokegama Lake. Now if it had not been for the knowledge of our fishing host, Rob Hamling, we would certainly not have caught as many fish as we did. As we found out at the shore lunch most of the fish in Pokegama were not cooperating on the cold at times wet morning. In fact walleyes were very hard to find with only about 4 being caught, and again thanks to our host, I was able to catch one of them.
Northerns were a bit easier to come by, but they were not jumping in the boat by any means either. Justin reeled in one of the northern, and we rounded out our fish catching with a few perch.
A big thanks to Grand Rapids and all the volunteers that put on a very fun and successful event. From the golf outing at Pokegama Golf Course, to the Community Picnic, to the celebration dinner; it was one very well run event.
