MERWIN Tournament Aug. 29th is a GO!

Merwin Tiger: 48 inches! Mike Floyd on August 6, 2015

Water levels are holding at Speelyai Bay for launching. Check back here often for updates between now and the 29th. It's been changed to a Members Only Tourney, but email us about that & more, below..

From Tournament Directors Mike and Dan Fuller: Meet at Speelyai Bay launch at 6:30 for sign-up. Boats launch at 7:00 a.m. We will be having a shore sack lunch at Muskie Flats at noon, where we will lay a wreath on the water for Pete's favorite lake. All are welcome to come, even if you did not know him. He would invite you! 

$20 entry fee per angler.

$10 Big Fish Calcutta (Optional)
Good, big launch & clean bathrooms.
Bring $3.00 for parking (when you leave).
Contest Banners for your motor cowling are WDFW required.

If you have had your boat in waters OUTSIDE of Washington, you will need to read and follow the WDFW instructions. Be thorough in sanitizing your boat. No one wants those invasive zebra mussels in our waters.

LICENSE… CAMERA…WDFW LEGALLY REQUIRED EQUIPMENT...FUN!

This is a great bunch of anglers - easy going and fun - yet dedicated to the tiger hunt

We lost one of our best anglers June 13, 2015. Pete was loved by all and will be remembered by many stories around the campfire. For more details, see link at top left.

Congratulations to Mike Floyd, Chapter #57: On July 10th, he logged his 400th MUSKIE on the Muskies, Inc. Fish Log. WTG, Mike!

He's been busy lately, too: A 13-fish day on Merwin and a 4-fish day on Tapps in a downpour of rain 8.14.

1st 2015 Tourney: Mayfield Lake, Saturday, May 16: 18 Tenacious Anglers

 

Good Times, Good Fish, 18 tenacious anglers. The "fish of 10,000 casts (as the muskie is called) tested the merit of some of Western Washingtons best esox anglers on Saturday. Water temp 55, air temp 55-58. Light mist, overcast. Lots of baby tiger (12+ inches) still hanging around from the May 5th stocking of the lake. Tough fishing conditions are nothing new to this group. "The next cast, is the best one".

Winner: Newcomer Kelly Reichner from Oregon with a 30" and a 33"=63". WTG, Kelly and Dan.

2nd Place & BIG FISH goes to Pete Bergman, with a nice 39 incher.

There was no 3rd place win, so, as is our custom, we raffled off the pot for 3rd place, won by one of the NEB (North End Boys) Bryant Peterson.

Great to see all the old faces and some new ones, too. Good turnout, lots of great camaraderie and Special Thanks to Pete Bergman for the stunning wooden sign of a 57inch (of course) tiger donated to Muskie Meadows.

Remember to Thank your dynamic Tournament Directors, Mike & Dan Fuller. It takes early planning, attention to details and careful money managing and they both do it all flawlessly. We are lucky to have them. THANKS Dan & Mike!

AND....Those new Muskies, Inc. shirts and Hoodies look sharp, men! Want one? Scroll down the front page of website.

Looking forward to the next Tourney, June 13 --- also on Mayfield.  RE-PETE!

      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.

     Muskies, Inc. is a National organization, started in 1966 in Minnesota. We are their 57th Chapter. We, like them, are a non-profit 501c3 and our Chapter was started in May of 2007.

                       We were the 1st Chapter in WA. And now we have been joined by yet another fine M.I. Chapter: #60 in Spokane; the Mountain Muskies.
