2017 Stat Summary
* It was another excellent fishing year on Lac Seul, with great production for both size and volume for all three of our target species.
* Ice out was May 8 this past year and overall, I would describe the summer weather season as normal. Total walleye numbers were very similar to 2016 results. The big fish numbers remained relatively steady with 630 walleyes over 27 in. and 58 over 29. We did catch and release 4 walleyes over 31 in.
* Smallmouth bass numbers were very good. June was once again the peak and we finished the year with 104 bass over 19 in.
* Trophy pike numbers were a little lower than the 2016 season, due in part to another mild Sept. For the season, we released 42 pike over 40 in.
* Overall, it was another outstanding fishing season at the Wheel.
