Slave Lake’s Walleye Classic

Posted by on Sep 7, 2010   12:00 AM  | WFN Community

Bob & I fished off & on for most of the Labor Day weekend with limited success. While we did manage to bring in some nice walleye we found that they weren’t biting quite as well as expected.  This likely was a result of the largest fishing derby of the year was on. It’s Lesser Slave Lake’s $100,000.00 “Walleye Classic” & there are 100 boats that particpate so the fishing pressure is tough. Most of our favourite holes were swamped with derby boats. There were fairly high seas with waves to 5 feet Saturday but these boats & ours weathered the conditions in pursuit of our favourite hobby, fishing. I haven’t seen the results of the derby but will post them another time. Monday was a completely calm day & the fishing was alot better as most everybody has left the area for the season. We plan on staying another week so am looking forward to some great year end fishing. More news @ 11:00 !
