Thuja Musky Lures

Just got some sample baits from Thuja. They are topwaters and I'm looking forward to trying them out.

I added a link to their blog and I'll report back later this week on the trial run.


Canada eh?

Musky Mikes Fly-in Canada Trip

After some requests by guide clients and store customers, I have begun to put together a Canadian Fly-In Fishing Trip for August of 2009.

I will lead a small group on a week long trip out of Red Lake, Ontario. We will fish a lake for Northern Pike and Walleye for a week starting on August 7th, 2009. I'll be arranging the food, beer, bait and tackle for the trip and each angler will get a personalized St Croix Jigging Rod as part of the package.

This is a great trip. I've been out with the outfitter several times and we've caught lots of fish at each of the lakes we've gone to. We'll be the only group on the lake (there's no other cabins). The scenery and wildlife are magnificent.

I'll be posting more information soon, but if you are interested, email me.

Weekend Report

Managed to get out both days this weekend.

Went to Lake Koshkonong with Ray on Saturday for a few hours. We trolled the flats and caught around 30 white bass and one short walleye. We tried pulling minnowbaits, and caught a few, but bottom bouncer/spinner harnesses were producing, so we dropped to four rods pulling those. Kytock Rigs (my special twist on the bottom bouncer) produced almost all the fish. The wind had picked up since I had been out there on Thursday, and the fish had repositioned deeper.

Had repeat clients Stu and Michelle on Sunday Morning. We had a nice casual trip to Silver Lake for Largemouth Bass. Caught some fish on Wacky Worms but Jigworms were producing a few more fish today. The fish were deeper than they usually are on Silver, but we got on them right away and ended our half day run with better than 30 fish.

I have a few days available if you'd like to get out.
