36"er?

15 posts in this topic

I was working a boat show yesterday and was told of a supposed 36" walleye caught on teh big pond? Any confirmations of this? I was expressly told that it was not the photo of the catholic priest's fish from Tobin and also not the photo of the new Washington state record recently caught on the Columbia River where the Snake dumps in. Any idea where they're seeing this photo?

Whitetip's: I got an Email from "Old Guide" about two weeks ago with a Picture of the fish. It was caught over by Twin Islands off of Long Point. It was reportedly 18 pounds, which I thought would be a new state record... Pat, if you can cast some light on the subject, let us know more about it... Kaz

That 18lber is not from twin Island, but from Lake Tobin Sask. Caught by Father Mariusz Zajac. It's in the 2006 In-Fisherman Ice Fishing Guide. The other I dont know about. LAter boar

That one has legs, I get a new wave of emails every 90 days or so asking me about the 36” monster caught near Twin Island. One day I hope it will be true but every one so far has been the priest on Tobin Lake.

Fisky: I have the picture on my computer up north.. Pat Fisher sent it to me, and it did look different then the one from last year.. Looked like it was taken in a fishhouse. Maybe you could give Pat a call in Warroad and ask him to send it to you... I don't think it was the same fish.. Kaz

As far as pics of the walleye thats floated around the internet for the past couple years, go to google and type exactly this in the search:

tobin lake walleye father

Select the first internet link at the top of the list. Father Walleye is pretty darn good apparently. The bottom picture on that page is the one everyone is talking about above.

I don't know how all these rumors get started, but everyone always jumps to a conclusion. I am not saying that it is not possible, but we would have heard some solid evidence from a newspaper or resorts.

As far as that goes I also find it funny that no one has caught on to the same father in all the rumors. They started that one about the harbor down here in duluth not too long ago. I checked it out myself as well...the fish mentioned were caught in tobin lake saskatchawan...the same pic from the rumor can be acces by googling the key words mention two posts above. Nice fish though, but not caught on LOW.

Makes for a good read, but that's about it.

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing Guys!!

White Tips and all,

Its funny that this is specifically NOT the fish caught on

Tobin when it is.

If you hear of a 36" Walleye it is not going to be a true

story. 34 is about all these fish will get. That 19 pounder

in Washington State was 34 inches long. Not to say its

impossible because there might be a mutant out there some

where but unless the story teller hands you a picture of the fish while

talking you can safely discard the information.

With the magic of Photo Shop and digital imaging its funny

we dont see more of these 36"ers.

If you go to google and type in "tobin lake walleye father" like the other guy said, and click on the first link it brings you to a 10 pound club. There are two photos of "Father Walleye" on there right in a row from Oct. 25 of '04 and the picture has to be photoshopped or something. If you look at it, there is a transom mount trolling motor just behind the guy on his right. Nothing wrong with a trolling motor in a fishing picture, but he is in a camper style fish house from the looks of the photo. I don't know anyone that is going to try to power their fish house accross the lake with a trolling motor.

Just thought I would point that out.

I dont think thats in an ice house.

Its in a living room.

And if its from October, that pretty much seals the deal that its not in an ice house.

      If there was a wind on Sunday there would have been waves in some areas.  We drove our trucks through 6" of water or more in some spots (many spots were dry) and had water gushing up out of some holes in some areas.  Fishing was OK for us but nothing to brag about.  We had a good fish fry and brought a meal or two home, depending on the side dishes.

      169 overpass (293rd or county 9) north of Zimmerman...take the off ramp and go east (right) to county 19 take a right going south through the S curve and hang a left at the end of S curve on 289th Ave take that about 2 miles to Blue Lake Dr take a right and then take your first left a couple blocks later to the landing.
