Week 10, 2018 July 21st – July 27th

Mid-season greetings from Jim and Julies Wabaskang Camp. Another great week has come and gone so let’s talk about what the fishing was like on week ten. The northern fishing was decent for our guests, large spinner baits, Suicks, Sandcats, and Bulldogs were all good baits, also spoons and crank baits were decent producers. Dennis Brown started things off when he caught and released a chunky 33” fish, Kevin Harvey knows his stuff, he released a 35” northern, Mike Behnke taught his sons a lesson in fishing, he released a 35” northern as Ryan and Kurt looked on in awe. Paul Robison hasn’t forgot a thing when it comes to northern fishing, his 35 7/8” brute he released briefly put him in first place before fishing fanatic Beau Thompson marched into camp and released a 37 1/2” and a 42” northern, his fish were caught while fishing with “Big Mike” which makes them even more eventful. Walleye fishing remains solid here on Wabaskang Lake, most fish are being caught on the deeper weed lines in about 12’ of water, we also saw a very good walleye bite in the 18’ to 24’ depth over rocky humps. A jig and minnow combination were hot but a spinner and minnow was also a super producer. Rich Luhring started things off this week when he landed a 22 1/2” walleye, Rich wasn’t even going to mention his catch to me but father Larry made sure his sons name was on the board even if it wasn’t going to be a hat winner. Dale Ternet jumped into the action when he released a chunky 24” walleye. Rhett Lammers was in camp with his dad “Big Mike” and proved the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, which is really quite sad for Rhett, when he released a 26 1/2” walleye, Kurt Behnke stumbled into a 27 1/2” walleye that put him in first place even though “Big Mike” said his 27 1/4” released walleye that he caught was really bigger but he didn’t want to knock Kurt off the board, that doesn’t sound like the brother I know. Kurt left camp Friday morning with his free loot and I didn’t have the heart to tell him his walleye was beat by Mr. Wabaskang Beau Thompson, he released a 28” brute he caught tossing giant stick baits over the weed beds after midnight on Friday, oh well, Kurt did catch and release an 18” bass that was a legitimate hat winner so one out of two isn’t bad. Speaking of bass most of our guests were not targeting them but we did have a few nice fish caught. Kevin Harvey landed a feisty 16 1/2” bass, Larry Luhring actually caught a 17 3/4” bass while walleye fishing. Next week looks cooler with spotty showers and thunder storms which is the typical weather for this time of the season. That’s all for now, this is Jim from Wabaskang.
