A knack for fishing

Greetings from Lake Wabatongushi!

Do you remember your first fishing adventure? Who got you interested? What was the first fish you ever caught? For me I was about 4 years old and my dad took my brother and I to a friends pond that was stocked with rainbow trout. For bait we used marshmallows and hot dogs. I vaguely remember catching my first fish but from what I do remember I was more interested in feeding the fish in the pond marshmallows than trying to catch them. It was many years later that I decided to pick up a rod again, but I sure am glad that I did.

Some people are just born to fish. I like to say that they were born with a fish radar implanted in their brain. They seem to have a feeling for fishing. They know where the fish are and how to catch them. I believe that Katie Vagiloff has just that. Katie is just ten years old and she has that certain flare for fishing. It doesn’t matter where Katie goes, she can catch fish.

During her stay here at the resort Katie caught, and released some beautiful walleye. Katie’s biggest catches were a lovely 26″ walleye, and a 24″ walleye. Way to go, Katie! You have quite the knack for fishing. Don’t ever lose that flare!

Some other great catch and releases from this past week come from Mr. Craig Conrad for his 24″ walleye and his 22″ walleye. Also from Mr. Kevin Norman for his 30″ pike. Great job, guys!

Happy fishing!
