I reconnected with a guy I went to high school with on Facebook a few years back. His grandparents had a place in Vilas and he visited them frequently, with some minor success catching a few bass and northerns over the years. Recently a casualty of the United Airlines layoffs and also lost his grandpa, so he's passing the time hanging with his grandma up there. He's commented on my pics more than once that he's never caught a walleye, and with being shorebound for the most part, it's not a big surprise.
It's not likely that I'll be making a trip up there to get him on a boat to increase his chances, but are there any lakes up there where he'd stand a chance at catching something from the boat launch area? He wouldn't know what to do with one if he kept it, so he's strictly C&R. I suppose the easiest answer is just hit as many as possible and eventually he should succeed, but there are a LOT of lakes up there lol.
