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.

     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.
