I took some time off from fishing on September 13th to visit what was advertized as the “Sawyer County Snowmobile & ATV Alliance 30th Anniversary Bash”. According to the Radio ads on WRLS, there was supposed to be all kinds of vendors for food, drink and snowmobile and ATV equipment.

I was prepared for a crush of people and a cornucopia of equipment vendors. What I found was a relatively empty Fairground. There were only about 10 food vendors and the equipment displays were very sparse.

The best food vendor was Blue Berry Hill Resort (Johnny B’s). The quality and quantity of food was exceptional for the price; however they were not allowed to sell even water…for that you had to go to someone else.

Obviously, the organizers of this “Bash” arranged it to maximize their revenue in anticipation of a big turnout. The small turnout exposed vendor in-fighting as they competed for the dollars of the anemic attendance.

A very poor experience…I will never go again!


Hangin' Jerk Baits

Most of the time when fishing for Muskies our lure speed ranges from moderate to fast. Yet slower presentations are often more effective, especially in the fall. But most lures simply won't function well at slow speeds...More

Twitch, Jerk and Glide

Fall Muskie fishing and jerkbaits go hand in hand, but what style jerkbait to use and when to use it? Make no mistake about it, jerkbaits can and do produce well all season long. When Fall comes round, they can really get hot...More

Musky On The Spot

When the water temperature falls to the low 60’s during the fall, pre-turnover tactics come into play. For the fish, there is no advantage to being suspended in deep water or up on the bars or on sprawling food shelves. The surface water temperature is pretty homogeneous and conditions tend to spread the fish out...More

QuickStrike Rigs

The catch and release concept has made a real improvement in our Musky fisheries over the past few decades, and the technology in quickstrike (QS) rigging live-bait is totally compatible with this line of thinking. Quickstrike rigs allow for an immediate hook set with near 100% hookups. Most live-baiting for Muskies is done in the cold water periods of the year when a Musky's metabolism is slowed way down...More

Some Fishing Tips

With catch and release fishing, many well meaning anglers keep their catch out of the water longer than necessary. If your boat is equipped with a live well, simply remove hooks from the Musky’s jaw while keeping the fish and the net in the water. Then place your hand along the gill plate, removing the fish from the net and placing it in the live well (pre-filled of course). This will give the fish time to regain its strength...More

Everything Went Wrong

It was September 1st, 2005 and the beginning of my fall trip to the Chippewa Flowage. After opening my trailer and getting the boat in the water the night before, I was ready to hit the water and cast my lot on the water along with the other Musky anglers who haunt the trailer court at Indian Trail Resort (the trailer court is commonly referred to as "The Hill" for obvious reasons.)...More

Little Things Mean A Lot

Most musky fishermen have a fairly good understanding of the basics of the sport. Information on musky fishing is much more available today than it was 15 or 20 years ago. The high quality lake maps on the market pinpoint most of the better spots on most popular lakes. The many books, magazines and videos on musky fishing provide information on techniques and methods. Musky clubs and musky tournaments allow the sharing of information and the observing and learning from others...More

RIGHT Time/RIGHT Place

Weather is, by far, one of the most important factors to consider when you are on the hunt for Musky. Another important factor is history…I don’t mean what you learned in school but the history on the water you fish regularly. Keeping some kind of log or record of when fish were caught, the lure used, and the prevailing weather at the time can be an invaluable tool to success on the water...More

Working Deep Wood

Sure we all like to catch those super active Muskies in shallow water. But how about those days or even weeks in the mid to late summer when the shallows seem to be devoid of any Muskies, much less active ones? One could schedule fishing only during low light periods such as early morning, late evening, or even at night. Or wait for a nice stormy day...More
