Muskie Season is Here!!

Muskie Season kicked off last weekend with a bang! The MOMC held their opening tournament and most anglers had good success fishing different areas around the lake. The winner of the tournament caught a 37.6 lb Muskie that was 52” long! We had some good success with our fist Muskie boated was 48”. We ended up 3 for 5 and fished the dumping grounds area. This is the start to a great season with huge fish like this being caught the door is wide open for many trophy Muskie and a possible new lake record! The bass fishing continues to be excellent as we have been catching 5-7 dozen bass each trip. Most days you can expect to get some other species like rock bass, sheephead & silver bass as they have entered the lake as well as filling up the Detroit River. The action has been very good around the mile roads in 8-12 foot of water using live bait has worked the best! We are still booking trips for this season and have limited availability during the peak fishing season. Give us a call to set up your fishing charters now while we still have dates available. Don’t miss out on this great fishing season! Tight Lines, Capt. Kevin Backus Mr. Muskie Charters (586) 771-8817 phone and fax (586) 206-4172 cell
