Best Point Resort FISH Pix
Dave "Hoggie" Hoggard with one of our great Sunnies!
Hello, just thought I’d share a pic of my catch from 2012.
This is a 53.5” x 28” x 39lb musky caught off the rocky point.
My wife and I have owned a cabin just slightly angled to the NE of
Best Point on the North Shore.
Peter Stadheim with a 25" Walleye July 2017. "Using minnows
wasn't working so I switched to a deep runner which was
mid sized and greenish color. I instantly hook into this 25" walleye!
I has a good guide, Keith Reich and the netter was Brandon Reich.
A day to remember... good times with the other passengers in the boat Bill, Charlie,
and Jackie Reich.

Wellllll doggies, what a nice catch. Mason (from Iowa City) got a bit of help in landing and holding this
dogfish. It was his personal biggest fish!
Hoggie with an "opener" eater Walleye.
This one came off the gas dock!
The story behind the fish is a great one! I set up one of my poles with a night bobber, orange jig, and big
fat head minnow.
Around 11 pm on 09-30-11 I casted it off the dock and started doing other things. After a quick 10 minutes I checked
to see my bobber was down. As I ran out to the dock I could see my rod was gone. At first I thought it was
one of my family members and friends playing a trick on me. After 15 minutes I sadly discovered it was not a cruel trick
but something took my $250 pole in to the lake. I spent the next hour and half walking back and forth between and on
all the docks with a giant mag light. I went to bed disgusted and angry at myself that I didn't leave the bail open on my reel.
The next morning I rushed out and started looking off of each dock. A friend of mine Matty Thorpe was out shortly
after me casting a muskie lure off of the same dock my pole disappeared off of. After a few minutes he started yelling for me.
I looked over to see him reeling in a open face reel and not a giant bait caster. I quickly joined him on the dock and he said it
was a big fish and thought it was a cat fish because it stayed deep. As soon as he got it close to the dock we both yelled
out walleye. We landed the fish and took pictures. It turns out the pole was only a foot off the dock in 6 feet of water.
Matty was looking down and caught a glimps of what he thought was a cork handle. He quickly reeled in his muskie
lure and let his lure sink down to that area and hooked my pole. As soon as he got my pole up the fight was on.
I got my pole back and Matty got the biggest walleye of his life. We both got a story we will never forget!
Here is a happy camper!
Two VERY happy campers, Duke and Tony.
