15th Annual Lake Manitoba Game and Fish Walleye Classic

Revy Rodriguez - Friday, September 27, 2013

Narrows West Lodge and Lake Manitoba Game and Fish Association have been working together for the last 15 years to host the Walleye Classic at the Narrows. Each year this catch and release derby has been a great turn out and a wonderful community event; however, this year was the most successful Walleye Classic in history. On September 21, the derby had its biggest turn out since the start of the classic, with 130 entries: 20 women and 110 men and a total of 127 fish weighed in. All participants met and registered at the lodge and then were off to the lake by 8:00 am to start the day.  The weather was cooler in the morning but the sun was shining and it stayed out all day to make an amazing day for fishing and fun.


After the derby was completed, over 100 people joined together at the lodge for the silent auction, the revealing of the prizes and a wonderful pig roast supper as well as great fishing tales.


The winners of the day were as follows:


1st Place - Dusty Wald, Minot, N.D., 9.22 LB Walleye - Prize Amount $2145.00

2nd Place - Alden Schlichting, Sanford, MB.   8.86 LB Walleye - Prize Amount $1287.00

3rd Place - Rob Sinclair, Winnipeg, MB.    8.74 LB Walleye - Price Amount $858.00


WE would like to thank all of the volunteers and everyone that participated in the Walleye Classic which made this event such a great success!
