Musky hunting

Postby AMJohnston » Thu Oct 06, 2011 11:06 am

Headed to Hayward Wisconsin in northwest Wisconsin on Sunday to fish for 5 days with these guys for the elusive esox masquinongy (otherwise known as musky). Will need lots of advil and Leinenkugel at the end of each day as I expect to be blind casting sinking lines on a 10 weight with 8-10" flies. Will file a full report on my return.

thats some beautiful country up there. I spent my summer working in northern WI. BIG muskies. hope you catch a bunch. and if you're a fan of beer give New Glarus a shot.

I welcome any and all advice on anything having to do with this trip, but especially beer recommendations!

Hayward is a great outdoor town. Used to be a good restaurant in town that I think was in an old bank building. Good food, great bar. There's a fly shop in town, run by a husband and wife, nice folks. Famous Dave's has a place outside of town, a resort and restaurant. If the weather is decent you can eat ribs overlooking the lake. Post some pics when you get back.

Here's hoping you get one in far less than 10,000 casts!

So show up with a knife and know how to shuck.
