Big walleye, big smiles at MLOA Canada Day derby

This Canada Day, the MLOA hosted a province-wide fishing derby for anglers at our member properties, to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday.

The prize for biggest fish went to Jennie Budd of Michigan, who caught a monster 32-inch walleye at Gunisao Lake Lodge. Congratulations to Jennie on the fish of a lifetime! The prize for best photo went to Amanda Harmston of New Mexico, whose 29.5-inch walleye at Aikens Lake Wilderness Lodge resulted in a great pic (above right). A Happy Canada Day indeed!

The two winning anglers each received a Canada/Manitoba-themed prize package, including Canada 150 branded lures, a Hunt Fish MB hat, a Canadian flag, and other goodies. Congratulations to our winners and thanks to all who took part.
