2020 Chapter Updates

So, we were hoping for some good news, but did not get any.  With the Safer At Home Order extended, we will be cancelling the following outings….

  • Quad Outing  
    • We hope to reschedule for the fall.
  • Pewaukee Classic 
    • This one really stings.  If you have already pre-paid via check, it will be returned to you.  We are looking into another outing to do in its place in the fall.

So, that is the bad news.

Onto some good news!

  • Lac Labelle Study
    • We partnered with MCW and the DNR on a project concerning tagging muskies in Labelle.  Between the two clubs, we purchased 12 transmitters to be surgically implanted into muskies that will be roaming Labelle.  It is possible that a fish or two will be put into Oconomowoc as well, but that isn’t known yet.
    • The goal of the study is to understand the migratory movements of muskies in Labelle.  We’ve invested a lot of money into stocking Labelle (MCW and MCMI) and we wish to see if they are leaving.  And if so, do they come back.
    • Our DNR biologist, Ben, is going to be working with us on this process and study.  Our hope is that this study helps him improve the dam on Labelle and ultimately helps him stock the lake in the future.

Our hope is that this update finds you and your family happy and healthy during this trying time.  We encourage you to fish within your community and hope to see you out there!

Meeting April 26th Speaker Jeff Hanson on Fishing Pressured Waters

Our April 26th 2016 Meeting at the Machine Shed will feature Madison Musky Guide Jeff Hanson. Jeff’s topic will be on “Fishing Pressured Waters”.

So come on out and join us for a warm up to Musky Season Opener.

Meeting February 23rd Steve Herbeck

When the discussion of top musky anglers comes into discussion Steve’s name invariably enters into the mix and the terms “legendary” and “innovator” are often brought up. He was recently mentioned in a vote by a panel of his peers as one of the top ten musky anglers of all time. With over 28 years of experience guiding and instructing from northern WI’s Vilas County–starting 28 years ago–to the Canadian Shield waters of the famed Eagle Lake for the past 22 years, Steve brings a wealth of new knowledge, patterns, and presentations.”This seminar won’t be an advertisement or entertainment but the real meat-and-potatoes overview of overlooked and sometimes contrary-to-many-popular-belief patterns and thoughts.  It will also give a preview of some new and exciting big fish patterns that have been developing more recently and emerging by the ever changing environment and ecosystem–especially on the Canadian Shield water of NW Ontario.”  1994 to date Steve and his clients have boated 43 muskies 40# – 50#+ on Eagle Lake ON and in the prior 6 years guiding in WI’s Vilas Co. 2 times guided clients to the largest musky boated in the state for the yr. with a 55 1/2″ 43# 6 oz. in 1987 and 53″ 47# 10 oz. in 1992. Steve brings to the stage knowledge and passion that is unique and contagious.  So come out and see Steve Herbeck present “Techniques to Landing Big Muskies”.  This is one you won’t want to miss!!  You can find us at  The Machine Shed – 7pm
N14 W24145 Tower Place (I-94 & WIS 164 Exit 294), Pewaukee, WI 53072.

January 26, 2016 at 7:00 PM  Capt. Chris Taurisano – When Preparation Meets Opportunity.

Chris is a southeast Wisconsin and northern Illinois multispecies angler that specializes in Muskie Fishing and runs his own “T-bone Guide Service” in the heavily pressured metro areas. Chris is a seminar speaker and has spoken at both the Chicago and Milwaukee Muskie Expos.  Chris began fishing with his Grandpa for Panfish at the early age of three.  In his teens he attended Camp Fish (started by Al Linder and the In Fisherman  Crew) every summer for a week, five years in a row, where he learned to become a better angler.  By 16 he had his own boat and traveled all over the Midwest, fishing with his Grandpa.  Despite his extensive fishing experience, he believes that he is always learning out on the water. Chris enjoys teaching and looks forward to sharing what he has learned.
