Last Tourney of 2014: Oct. 11th- Mayfield
Due to both Speelyai Bay and Cresap boat launches being closed earlier than usual, the Tourney was changed to Mayfield. Members had a great time camping at Muskie Meadows and share some good
fishing, food and friendship!
Fishing results and photos coming soon....
Merwin Tournament: Sept.6, 2014
MERWIN TOURNEY, Sept. 6, 2014: 5 Tiger Muskie were caught and released.
Biggest Fish of the day went to Dan Fuller who caught a 43.5 incher. Dan also caught a 36 inch Muskie and another 31 incher.
Pete Bergman caught two: A 36 inch Muskie and another 30 inch fish.
Everyone enjoyed a cookout at the firepit and telling of tall tales. A beautiful weekend up on the Resevoir.
Cresap boat launch is lovely; however parking can be problematic! I'm hopeing the renovations on Speelyai make parking better!
Time will tell!

TIGER MUSKIE TOURNAMENT: Mayfield Lake, July 12, Saturday
CHAPTER #57, Muskies, Inc. Tourney:
Beautiful summer day on the most stunning tiger muskie lake in Lewis County. (!) All agreed to come off the water by 14:00 because of heat. As uncomfortable as it may be for the anglers, it can be
downright dangerous for tiger muskies. Especially the big girls. And the top 3 spots went to some great fish.
1st place to Pete Bergman with a magnificent 48 inch tiger muskie.
2nd Place to Mike Floyd, with a hefty 43.5 incher and
3rd Place to Dan Fuller with a 41.5 beauty.
Afterwards we had a big camp-out for all & enjoyed a great potluck (Terriffic Brats, Miles) from many generous anglers and REALLY enjoyed the Super Moon as the day cooled off.
Other than a few "bumps in the night"... a good time was had by all.
