Late Sept and early Oct is prime time for Muskie

After last years trip, had to sneak out between salmon/steelhead trips and find a couple more Musky to play with this past week.  They are the biggest baddest predator that we have here in the Midwest.  They are a special fish and I love the chase.  With possible new laws and the MDNR working hard to find new waters to plant Musky in, the future looks bright.

Picture of the Day – First King of the Year

Ed McCoy finding one that would eat a streamerIt’s a challenge that I have always enjoyed since the first time I tried it 8 or 9 years ago, throwing streamers for Kings.  With this years temps, the challenge has stepped up a notch.  Usually first King of the year for me (and my boat) is hooked and landed in Aug, so this year we are a step or two behind my usual pace.  But Ed McCoy got us on the board, and look for the next wave of fish to bring us back to our normal pace.

New Order of MFM Sweatshirts on the way

One of my favorite pieces of clothing in the fall and winter is a hoodie sweatshirt.  Having not being blessed with a full head of hair, keeping my head and neck warm in the fall is a must.  After trying so many different companies sweatshirts, (personal R&D) this hoodie was the best I found.  Have a new order of MFM sweatshirts on the way, so if you want one for fall just let me know or order online here

With yesterday’s rain and tomorrow nights low of 44 I can taste fall is on the way.  Been casting at Salmon, Coho, and even a couple steelhead the past couple days.  With 70 degree water temps they are not very aggressive towards the fly.  But life is about to change, I can feel it.
