Kids Fishing Contest Results (6-27-13)

July 3rd, 2013

It was another historic week as 17 contestants caught a total of 100 fish last week in the kids fishing contest at Thunder Lake Lodge!  Yet another all-time record was broken by one of our veteran contestants.  Here are the superlatives for the week:

  • Parker Oelrich from Cottage #10 caught the most fish of the day.  He tallied 28 total fish.
  • Jaxson Olson from Cottage #11 caught the biggest fish of the day, which was a very nice 15 inch largemouth bass.
  • Small fish for the day was an all-time record-breaking 2 3/8″ rock bass caught by Bryan Oelrich in Cottage #10.  We are still wondering how that small of a fish actually bit a hook!

Congrats to all the participants!
