Congratulations to Everett Bay Lodge guests Dan & Jake Doherty on claiming the big prize in the 2017 City Auto Glass Walleye Classic on Lake Vermilion yesterday. Although the morning started out slow for the pair, Dan’s 31 1/8″ 10.2 lb walleye sealed the deal. It was a true team effort as Jake landed the big fish in a new net he won at the tournament banquet the night before! Dan commented that his usual old net might not have been up to the task. Team Doherty finished with 15.28 pounds for the day and released some other slot fish as well. A winner’s check of $12,500 + big fish winnings over $700 made for a nice payday AND Dan gets his picture on our Everett Bay Lodge Wall of Fame! Check out this photo of Dan’s big Lake Vermilion walleye and Jake with a 22.5″ he caught & released.
