2016 Quad County Challunge Recap

The 29th annual Quad County outing is now in the books. This year, with Mother’s Day landing on Southern Wisconsin’s opening weekend of game fishing, the Quad County Challenge between Milwaukee Chapter and Quad County (IL) Chapter of Muskies INC was a one day affair. Only 1 fish between both chapter was eligible to be counted, a 43″ fish caught by Steve Berg. There were some fish ineligible fish caught on Opening Day by Milwaukee Chapter members. Noteworthy fish boated were Brian Malack with a 33.5″, Marty Foreman with a 34″, and Steve Berg with a 40.5″.
A special thanks to Daelyn Petzke and Lynne Dembiec for all the help with the food after the outing.
