2008 Musky List & Fishing Report Print E-mail

2008 FISHING SEASON was a perfectly happy year,

... with lovely weather and no complaints, although the musky list did not seem to grow as fast as usual … until the end of the year. June had the fewest fish on the list in years, but September made up for it.
 
People were catching, and we even saw photographs of a real stringer of fish, just like those we have in the old photographs, but haven’t seen for years. Some different guides were working more, some others were working less – and that, of course, shows up in the lists. In some cases this was reflected in the fishing catch: for instance, the Gunkel family, who now have some skilled young fishermen among their teenagers, both girls and the boys, rotated the kids in and out every two hours! Bass continued their impressive showing, and walleye showed up again after several years of hiding.
 
However, the main thing that affected 2008 was that it was a year for family reunions, in July, but for fewer families vacationing just by themselves in August. The beginning of the down times were just beginning, and people were not traveling much, and the gas prices were scary and just kept people at home.

So, let’s just hope for a calmer season for the fishermen for 2009, and hope this shows up in the fish catch!  We certainly are comfortable that the fishery does not know there is a depression out there, and are confident that the lower fishing pressure will show up as a positive!
