Here is one for the bragging board from Bob Ray of Edmond.
“Ed, it’s rare that I catch something worth bragging about but I did this time. I just returned from a fishing trip to Saskatchewan Canada with a group that Don Wallace put together. There were 17 of us on this trip and we fished for four days.
“We caught several northern pike over 40 inches, lake trout, and more walleye than we could count. The daytime high temperature was less than 70 degrees and it got down to 55 at night. The cool weather combined with the shore lunches that our guides cooked for us each day and the great fishing made for a very enjoyable trip. This northern measured 42.5 inches, one of three that I caught that measured over 36 inches. I just had to gloat a little.”
For those who don’t know, Don Wallace had an outdoors television show in Oklahoma City that aired for 40 years counting the reruns.
Now 82-years-old, Don still escorts a group of anglers each summer to Sportsman’s Lodge in LaRonge, Saskatchewan.
