I was impressed with the number of larger walleyes caught during the Acme Tool Hawg Walleye Contest on Island Lake over the weekend. Greg Privette of Duluth won the event with a 7-13. Todd Haedrich of Saginaw took second with a 7-7 and Tony Fillman of Duluth third with another 7-7. Ann Aultman of Duluth was fourth with a 7-0 walleye. Jessica Haedrich, daughter of Todd and Belinda Haedrich, took fifth with a 5-9 walleye.
Those are some nice walleyes, just half an hour north of Duluth.
All proceeds from the event went to benefit local Boy Scouts.
