2018 Season Wrap-Up

The 2018 season comes to a close…

The 2018 fishing came to a close for us this November and things started to come to a manageable pace for us at Mr. Muskie Charters.

The boats are out of the water and the task lists on them have been started.

We have lots going on this off season with some big improvements to the boats, a new website launching the start of the new year, so look for our email on that soon.

However this is a good time to look back on the year and reflect to how blessed we are to have this fishery here in our back yard!

This year the spring Walleye season was the best that I have ever experienced in my lifetime! It was filled with awesome action and great fish with limit catches most every trip! We expect that this coming year will be another exceptional year for the spring Walleye run!

Bass catches — quality over quantity…

Bass this year was very interesting as we had many early season days with some good numbers of fish caught but as the season heated up and the Bass left their beds they were harder to target, the numbers declined but the quality was excellent!

Muskie Fishing this year was also puzzling as the numbers of fish on many days was off a bit as far as Muskie being caught but it seemed that we also had caught more pike and Walleye while Muskie fishing than in the past decade or more! The quality of the Muskies were very good this season with the majority of the Muskies being over the 40″ mark.

We still had an excellent season boast over 800 and around 20 over the 30 lb club and our biggest of the season was a 54″ 42# Monster!

Sturgeon this year followed suit with a slightly lower catch rate on the charters but the quality was out of this world!! We boated over 100 Sturgeon in the 2 month season that we fish it and over 50 of them were over the 60″ mark and some over the 70″ mark with our biggest ever at a whopping 74″!

Our Mr. Muskie Crew also swept the podium at the annual Sturgeon tournament this season, great job guys on proving that you really are the best in the industry!

We hope we see you next year…or, stop by and see us as show season starts soon.

Tight Lines,
Captain Kevin
