We Loved This Amazing Fly-In Fishing Story!
September 26, 2016
Brad Dokken is a lot like us ‚Äì he loves to tell a good fish story. But when Brad tells the story, it’s published in the Grand Forks Herald of Grand Forks, ND!
He took a WILD fly-in fishing trip to Malette Lake…
Malette Lake outpost camp in northern Ontario offers wilderness fishing luxury
NESTOR FALLS, Ont.‚ÄîJason Laumb knew he had a big fish at the end of his line, but he didn’t know quite how big until the form rose up from the depths about a foot below the surface of the water next to the boat.
Picture a log with fins, a massive head and razor sharp teeth, and you’ll get the idea.
This was a northern pike. No, make that a big northern pike‚Äîa real duck eater.
Jigging for walleyes with 8-pound test line and a white-and-yellow plastic paddletail for bait, Laumb, of Grand Forks, had a battle on his hands as the pike ripped drag from the spinning reel.
There’d be little room for error if he wanted to get the fish in the boat.
