2008— Week 24

What a great week with no less than 6 trophies caught! Although we had about 20cm of snow on the first day of the week the fishing was out of this world. Trolling for Lake Trout was very productive on all the Lakes we fished. Harley Willesen caught the biggest Lake Trout of the week with 104 cm, followed by Thomas Mall (103 cm), Beat Lanz (101 cm) and last but not least Hansruedi Hebeisen (100 cm). Scott Gervin landed a huge Pike of 108 cm and Neil Boddington a beautiful Grayling of 48.5 cm. Congratulations to all of you guys, well done and welcome to our exclusive Trophy Club! It doesn’t happen too often that we are able to announce 6 trophies in one week. Generally fishing for Grayling was a little spotty, some rivers were very tough to fish, on some other rivers we did exceptionally well. Same story is for the Pike fishing. Some days were awesome, some days rather slow. As mentioned above the week started with snow. On the next day temperatures rose significantly and for the rest of the week we experienced a mix of sun and clouds with the occasional thunder shower. The winds were on the calm side and all in all it was a fantastic week with many happy faces.
