Getting camps ready is always a lot of work. When we get behind, we end up recruiting outside help. Pete and Pam are no strangers to our camps since Pete worked for us many moons ago, and over the years, he has brought Pam with him on several camp cleaning trips.
Of course, after the work, I guy has gotta provide for his wonderful wife (that is his story and I’m sticking to it) and what better way than to harvest some of the bounty of the lake. As Pete concentrated on eating sized walleye, Pam practiced reeling in the lunkers. She has a habit of getting the biggest of her life. See the post of her biggest northern in 2008 here. She gleefully told me that this walleye was the biggest of her life.
She returned this breeder to the lake as they did all the larger walleye. Pete worked on catching supper and did manage to hook onto a nice Northern pike which after this photo op was returned to the lake. Of course along with these pictures there are stories about even larger fish on Pete’s line but there is no photographic proof… hmmm
