Gone fishin'

Tatum Martin, left, and Tia Wagar showed off their catches while Amber Hughes looked on with pride during the “Kids Gone Fishing” event last Thursday afternoon that kicked off the 18th-annual Emo Walleye Classic. District students from Grades 5-8 were paired up with a team fishing in the tournament to help them gain some knowledge and appreciation of fishing.

Close call

John Desaulniers did his best “Neo” from The Matrix impression as he leaned back from an in-tight pitch during the Sight & Sound Wolves' 14-3 win over Windey's Warriors in Rainy River District Fastball League action last Thursday night at VanJura. Desaulniers pitched a complete game in that one to pace the Wolves to their second win of the season.

Little fish

Dennis Smith held up a walleye while his partner, Terry Allan, looked on during the top 10 boat parade on Saturday afternoon at the Emo-La Vallee Arena. The duo finished ninth at this year's EWC with a two-day total of 9.96 pounds.

Out of the bag

Bill Godin of Devlin held the bag open while his partner, Nolan Mann of Fort Frances, returned a walleye to it that they had caught as part of their 6.73-pound Day 2 haul during the top 10 boat parade on Saturday afternoon at the Emo-La Vallee Arena. The duo finished third at the 18th-annual Emo Walleye Classic with a two-day total of 14.53 pounds.

Boys out to capture ninth-straight title

Another successful regular season is officially in the books and the Muskie boys' soccer team is one step closer to their ultimate goal.

The conditions were poor and they definitely didn't play their best brand of soccer, but the black-and-gold still managed to earn a win and a draw in their final league games last Wednesday in Kenora against the host Broncos and Dryden Eagles.

EWC champs

Dan Pollard hoisted up a walleye that was part of he and his son Josh's 8.91-pound Day 2 haul that made them the champs of the 18th-annual Emo Walleye Classic over the weekend. After back-to-back years of finishing as the runners-up to Les Morrison and Oliver Gibbins, the Pollards topped the 30-team field this year with a two-day haul of 15.69 pounds.

Proud angler
