With the ice going off the lakes earlier than normal this year, fishing has been anything but normal. Seems like we haven't had two consecutive days of similar weather since the Walleye opener on May 14th. But most anglers don't care about that....they just enjoy going fishing.

During the month of June we saw Steve Blakstad take the Walleye lead in our Fishing Contest with a 28 incher. Right behind him is Mike Hoffman at 27 1/2 inches. Travis Green is now in third place with his 25 1/2. Mike Hoffman also landed a 25. Sean Houi landed a 24 3/4 inch Walleye. The Northern Pike leader board shows Mark Beltz in the lead at 29 1/2. Ryan Wagler and Bill Thiele are tied for second at 29 1/4. The biggest Crappie landed by our guests in June was J.P. Nixon's 13 1/2 incher. Our Crappie leader is Jodi Blakstad with her 14 3/4 incher.

Paul Cusmano landed a sweet 19 1/2 inch Largemouth Bass in June and is in 2nd place behind Don Weaver's 20 incher. Aaron Kizer and Rimas Guzulaitis each landed an 18 inch Largemouth Bass in June. Our Giant Sunfish leader is Lynn Wagler. She landed a dandy 9 3/4 incher. Lynn also holds 2nd place with a 9 1/2 incher.

Our top ten biggest Perch were all landed in June. Aaron Kizer is in the lead at 11 1/2 inches. Sophia Juhler is in 2nd place with the 11 1/4 inch Perch that she landed on our Kids Pontoon Fishing Trip that we enjoy every Wednesday during the summer. Colby Latvala remains tied for 2nd with his 11 1/4 inch Perch. Our Rock Bass leader is Vicki Fader. She landed an 11 7/8 incher in June. Tied for 2nd at 11 1/2 inches are Bryson Wagler and Andrew Przybyla. And finally our Giant Bullhead leader for 2016 is Eddie Houi. He conquered a giant 15 1/2 inch Bullhead in June. Trenton Wagler is second at 13 3/4 inches.

If you want to see and hear Loon's every day (Minnesota's State Bird)...stay with us at Oak Haven Resort. I'm quite sure every guest we've had so far in 2016 has enjoyed the large number of Loon's in this area. And if you're looking to stay at a resort that's not wild and crazy like so many other resorts...stay with us at Oak Haven.
