Nine Milwaukee Chapter members and one from the Headwaters Chapter registered and participated in the outing on August 21st.The fish were more active for this outing with four fish being caught (all trolling) during the outing hours of 4:30PM to 9:00 PM. Nancy Hinkforth doubled up catching 37.5 and 37 inch muskies. Roy Hinkforth boated a 35 incher followed up by Pat Guarnaccio who caught a 30.5 inch fish.
The gathering at Smokey’s West at 9:00PM gave all of us the opportunity to spend some time with our fellow members and enjoy some Mexican food and drinks together. Thanks again to Gail Kilps for bringing the rice and beans and also to Craig Niermann for manning the Nesco of taco meat while we were out fishing. Everyone attending the gathering received a door prize, thanks to Pat Kilps/Quest Technologies. Another thank you goes out to John Laimon who has been most gracious in providing us with the location to host our gathering and to Gordy for keeping the shop open for us. Please remember to continue giving John your business in the future to show your appreciation for all that he does for our club.
Please mark your calendars for the final outing which takes place on Thursday, September 18th. Try to make it a point to participate. Our goal is to make this the best outing of the year. The casting bite should be on and hopefully the bigger fish will become more active. Let’s have some fun together as a club of people that all enjoy the same thing…muskie fishing and the camaraderie that follows each event.
See you on the water.
