Greetings Muskie Hunters!

What a strange time we are all living in now. I hope all of you are in good health. For those who are not, take care of yourself and your loved ones.

Hopefully the Corona virus will soon be a thing of the past. Until then, I think that being outdoors, in areas without crowds, is a nice alternative to being inside 24/7. I have been able to get out on the water a few times in the last month, and the muskies have made their presence known. I haven’t connected yet, but I have seen quite a few. Not all lakes are allowing boating/fishing, so check their status before you make a potentially wasted journey.

To help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we had to cancel the April meeting and may need to cancel other upcoming events. Check our website, for additional updates. more....
