Awesome trip...over 1000 walleye (MORE PICS ADDED)

Well, we just got back last week from our trip to Demi Lune in Quebec and let me tell you it was our best trip yet. The weather was great for most of the week and the two days it was windy and rainy the walleye made up for it as they hit just about anything on the end of a line. There were 16 of us who went up and with each boats weekly totals we easily hit the 1000 walleye mark for the trip. I love this lake as it has both normal walleyes as well as blue walleyes that can be downright beautiful in the sunlight. I've posted a pic of one to give an idea for some color but it's a very poor example. My cousin caught one that was nearly turquoise. We caught much bigger fish on this trip as well taking our biggest walleye (30" and 9 lbs) as well as a 45" 25 lb pike (pics included).

This is the first pike of the week. I was hammering these guys on chartreuse zara spooks and white spinner baits. The topwater bite was awesome.

Another pike I caught on the spook.

This was the 45" pike my brother caught. What makes it even better is how he caught it. I told everyone before we went that we were having a one day contest where we each had to make a homemade lure from home out of anything we wanted. Whoever caught the biggest pike on their homemade lure won the money. My brother took a rubber shark from his sons toybox and threaded a steel leader through it and put a trebble hook on the end. We were fishing a dropoff and I told my brother to shove a drag sinker down it's throat to get it deeper. The first cast after sinking his shark and WHAM, this guy was in the boat.

A stringer of walleye for the fish fry. We each kept our 6 fish to take home and enough for one shore lunch, the rest went back in the lake.

The 30" 9 lb walleye my uncle caught on a purple hair jig tipped with a worm.

Here's a pic of a fin off of one of the blue walleyes. This was probably the dullest one I caught and I don't know why I didn't take more pics but this gives you an idea. Their backs were nearly black with this blue coloring shining through the scales.

After fishing from 6 am to about 2pm it was relaxing to tie up in the middle of the lake and relax

This pic shows how we found a great walleye spot our first trip up there many years ago. Nothing was biting and we were at whits end when a rainbow exactly like this showed up. If you can tell it ends right on a small patch of birch trees. My uncle looked at me and said, that must be where they are. That night we motored over to the trees and hammered them. I thought it was ironic that a rainbow fell in exactly the same spot this year and it produced just as well.

Cooking up some home made old bay potato chips for the fish fry.

Relaxing by the camp fire on full stomachs of breaded walleye, french fries and cherry cobbler and apple crisp from the dutch oven

Boats on the beach after dragging them over to an adjoining lake where my brother caught his big pike.

All the guys who made homemade lures. One was a flattened out shoe horn which actually had better action than any or my store bought spoons and hammered the pike. There's also a rubber ducky, a baby rattle and a beer can popper in there too.

All of us in the youngest generation
