Metionga Northern

I am sure some of the rods and reels Jeff and Jeff (father and son) brought to Metionga Lake a few weeks ago needed a little maintenance when they got home.   Nothing like field testing the equipment in the real world.

With fish like these being cranked in you’d almost think axel grease would hold up better than light reel ...read more.

Jeff wrote on his facebook page

“1 of about 600 walleyes caught by me and my dad in six days. No exaggeration.”

You never know what is going to take your hook on Metionga Lake .  Chances are it is a feisty walleye looking for a dinner invitation, or a lunker northern testing your tackle and resolve. Sometimes it is something that looks prehistoric and plain weird – the fish I mean.
