The Annual Banks Lake Triple Fish Challenge that took place last weekend was a resounding success. Reel Recreation, the group that organizes and stages the event did an excellent job, conducting a quality event. The sixty participants enjoyed sunny skies and calm water and turned in record numbers of triple fish catches. Anglers that had been able to catch a walleye, bass, trout or whitefish in a single day had been rare in the past. This year eight anglers accomplished this feat on Saturday, and six on Sunday. The overall fishing was very good on Saturday, but more difficult on Sunday, particularly for walleye. There were different winners for biggest fish of each species on Saturday and Sunday, for both adults and youth. The biggest stringer on Sunday was turned in by Jim Stanely at 5.68 pounds. The combined best stringer weight for both days was 14.44 pounds and was turned in by Brian Waters. He won the grand prize, which was a tricked out kayak valued at $3,000. Cash and prizes for the biggest fish of each species were awarded for each day of the Challenge. For complete details and can visit the Reel Recreation website or Facebook page. The website address is
