Aug. 4th:   and Sept. 11th:   Good Job, Mike!

 

Last Tourney of 2014: Oct. 11th- Mayfield

Due to both Speelyai Bay and Cresap boat launches being closed earlier than usual, the Tourney has been changed to Mayfield. Members are welcome to camp at Muskie Meadows and share some good fishing, food and friendship!

For more info, contact Webmaster @ nwmuskie@comcast.net OR Secretary Mary @ nwtigerpac@yahoo.com

 MERWIN TOURNEY, Sept. 6, 2014: Though there weren't enough people to make the cost of the Tournament viable, there were 7 club members who went out fishing together to enjoy the sunshine and sport! 5 big mama's were caught and they all put in for a Big Fish Money Pot!
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 big Lovelies! <lol> A 36 inch Muskie and another 30 inch fish. Miles McDonald, Kirk Lenentine and Bill Evans didn't get any fish in the boat, but all had a good time on the lake.

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.

(Waiting for 3rd place fish photos).

      The goals of the Chapter are to promote Tiger Muskie Fishing in the great Northwest, provide information and services to tiger muskie anglers, promote Catch, Photo and Release (CPR) where it is appropriate and to provide information to other groups about the benefits of having the sterile Tiger Muskie in Northwest lakes, as well as the proper way to handle a muskie if one is caught.
