East Silent Lake is best known for its walleye. However, there are many species of fish for guests to catch. Most recently we’ve been impressed by some large northern pike. Check out these great photos!
Lori displays a nice 6.5 lb. northern pike!
Darel had an interesting week at East Silent Resort. Check out this 15 lb. monster.

We were all amazed at how long and skinny this fish was!
