On a windy and cool evening May 23rd, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee joined the Milwaukee Chapter of Muskies, Inc for another outing based out of Smokey’s Muskie Shop on Pewaukee Lake. Gene Pokora chaired the event with help from his wife Mary and son Michael (grillmaster), Nancy and Roy Hinkforth, Craig Ader, Steve Berg, Nick Gosh, Jim Dembiec, and Mike Phelps.
Stephanie from BBBS coordinated efforts from their side with pontoon rentals from Smokey’s, and the chapter shuttled the pontoons between the bait shop and the muskie shop. The first pontoon left the muskie shop in pursuit of panfish a little after 5:30PM with the last pontoon departing about 6PM. Panfish caught included perch, pumpkinseed, bluegills, and crappie with the best action early. Returning to the muskie shop a bit before 8PM, a warm meal of burgers and chili (and of course other fixings and dessert) hit the spot.
