New Tiger Muskie Lake Signs; Pete's wish fulfilled.

I am proud to announce that 50 Tiger Muskie signs (see below)  have just been ordered for all 7 Tiger lakes in WA. by Chapter #57, Muskies, Inc. Special thanks to WDFW Warm Water Manager, Bruce Bolding for his help in this endevour. Chapter #60, Spokane, will also help fund this project. 

It was ONE of the projects Pete Bergman was determined to get done. This one is for you, buddy Pete. We all miss you dude. Especially the "fishy" phone calls.

      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.
