Reference: And Then There Is The Zander

by Larry Blomquist

I could not end this feature that started last issue with Tim Gorenchan’s excellent article on the details of painting a walleye. Then the question came forward of the difference between walleyes and saugers. The previous article did not mention zanders because as far as I know there are no zanders in Canada. Zanders can be found all over Europe, and as they closely resemble walleyes. While zanders are almost exclusively found in Europe, the UK, and western Eurasia, two lakes in North America hold an actual population of them as well. These waters are Spiritwood Lake and Alkali Lake in North Dakota. The North Dakota Game and Fish Department officially stocked zanders in Spiritwood Lake back in 1989. Since then, these European predators (that look so much like walleyes) have inhabited this water. Here, both Spiritwood Lake, located near Jamestown, and the connected Alkali Lake south of it, hold populations of zanders.

Painting a Walleye

Painting a Walleye

by Jeff,Brain

The walleye chosen for this particular paint schedule was a rather small, nineteen-inch, two-pound specimen. It was caught in Ontario waters through the ice in mid-March. Our ice fishing season closes on March 31, and most of these fish are caught out in the bay just prior to heading upstream to spawn. The walleye in the Georgian Bay area tend to be very light in color, similar to those from Lake Erie. I believe this is due to the shallow, limestone-based waters.

African Reference: Lowland and Mountain Nyalas

African Reference: Lowland and Mountain Nyalas

by Larry Blomquist

Lowland nyalas or simply nyalas are spiral-horned antelopes native to southern Africa. Their range includes Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Eswatini, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. They have been introduced to Botswana and Namibia. Their population is stable, and they have been listed as of least concern by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. The principal threats to the species are poaching and habitat loss resulting from human settlement. Male nyalas are highly prized as game animals in Africa.The most recent population estimates I could find show that South Africa has the largest population of nyalas at over 30,000, with 25,000 in KwaZulu-Natal.

Mountain nyalas are large antelopes found in high altitude woodlands in a small part of central Ethiopia. Mountain nyalas are larger than the more common southern or lowland nyalas. Mountain nyalas are considered the rarest spiral-horned species and the hunt is regarded as the ultimate African big-game hunt. Many hunters compare this to high altitude sheep and goat hunts.

Part 2 The Fox Series: Arctic Fox Reference

Part 2 The Fox Series: Arctic Fox Reference

by Brian Hendricks

Arctic foxes live above the tree line in the arctic and alpine tundra. They can be found as far south as Hudson Bay in Canada. The arctic fox in this article was only part of a lifelong dream trip. From my home state of Michigan, I flew to Chicago, to San Francisco, to Vancouver, to Anchorage and a 6-hour drive (ride) to the Alpine Creek Lodge. My host, guide, and comrade for a month-long adventure, Claude Bondy, helped design a custom package for my needs. The prerequisite being that I set all the traps—not a ride-along trapping trip, which is quite common.
