Hello Muskie Hunters!
This time of year always gives me mixed feelings. I think some of it goes back to my childhood
when I knew the endless summer was coming to a close, and the dreaded classroom was looming
closer and closer. In our region the winters always seem gray and slushy, and to go on forever!
Being out on the water is, for many of us, a memory that keeps us going in those darker days.
Yet, I know that generally the best days of Muskie fishing are in the next few months.
My favorite and most productive fishing excursions have always been in the months from September
through November. And, I think that for me, and many of our fellow Club members, the month of
September is going to be a great month!
As is prominently mentioned elsewhere in this newsletter, the Gil Hamm Memorial Chapter Challunge
is taking place in the third week of September at Spring Bay Resort on beautiful Lake Vermilion.
Since our Club is the reigning champion we are hosting the event. The Committee that has been
working on this has done a fantastic job of soliciting sponsors, planning the event, advertising,
and getting the word out to the other Muskies Inc, chapters.
I think we have one more major task ahead of us, and that is to bring the Lunge Bucket back to Chicago,
its hometown, once again!
