More than 45 million Americans six years of age and older enjoy fishing every year. An average angler spends $1,261 every year on the sport. 34.1 million Americans ages 16+ spent an average of 17 days fishing.

Three-fourths of the earth’s surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple of our time fishing as taking care of the lawn.

Back in the day (1965), when learning that they had stocked Lake Michigan with salmon and trout, I thought how fantastic it would be to catch large game fish close to my home.

One day I drove to the west shore of the big pond to give fishing from shore a try. It didn’t take long, I caught my 1st Coho and several after that.  As the old story goes, the rest is history! Over the years I have owned several boats and have caught hundreds of salmon and trout trolling Lake Michigan. In addition, I made many trips to Wisconsin, Minnesota and Canada fishing for a trophy Musky.

Between the years of 1967 & 1985, I contracted the dread affliction called ‘MUSKY FEVER!” During that period of time, I felt compelled to hunt for and capture a trophy sized Musky! You will read that the cause for this fever is quite catchy. If you are among the many that has the “FEVER”,  and although there is no real cure, the Musky articles I have written may help to bring down your temperature , or just maybe help you to land your first trophy Musky. You will find many articles about what I have learned over the years, combined with various sources I have compiled over a long period of time.

When the Media gets involved in our great sport , things tend to get quite distorted. Much of what they report is totally based on hearsay with little truth or fact being represented. MUSKY MYTHS This is how stories like 100 pound Muskies, and 10,000 casts get blown out of proportion! Of all the liars among mankind, the fisherman is the most trustworthy!

Of all the advice and tips I’ve picked up over the years, this best kept secret has helped me the most. SALUNAR

Thanks for Looking…..Good Luck!

Panfishing….Back to basics

Note:  this article is a direct copy of a Mepps ad….. If you’re looking to get “back to the basics,” or if you’re in search of just plain fun, and enjoy eating fish, visit your favorite panfish lake soon.

A SPORTSMAN CREED

There are millions fishing each season in the United States. With this vast number of fisherman, there must be an awareness of how important conservation is!
