2007 Musky List & Fishing Report Print E-mail

2007 What an extraordinary year….

It was more extreme than ever in the wonderful days “when the fish all but jumped in the boat” and other long stretches of nothing. Splendid days began the year: while it was only three fishermen, they caught 11 fish by June 3, which is a little earlier than usual. But then only five fish for the rest of the month.

While the attached Musky List is actually shorter than usual, the average size is right up there with the last couple of years. While the resort had a better year than the last couple, apparently they just weren’t musky fishermen. We believe the list has more to do with the fishermen than the fish!

But outside musky: people were thrilled with the fishing! There were some extra ordinary moments, such as mid-august when people had been reporting wonderful crappie fishing, and it was proven on the day when the Burdick family, guided by Terry Peterson for just half a day, actually counted and boated just short of 100 crappie in a morning. And everyone kept expressing surprise that with the endless heat of summer, the fishing was not affected.

We also saw so much more variety of fishing: again and again people reported on the bass catching, and at the end of the season on closing weekend Jason Burley brought in a fine specimen of a different species each day! (but he didn’t get a musky – don’t know if he tried or not).

We also had lots of old names back on the board again: John Stevenson had a nice 41.5 incher but on the eve of the Muskies Inc. tournament, a day too soon to register it! We were delighted to see the Kimes family again after a few years (too much interference from ball games as the kids grew older) and they were on board again. The Mathy’s came with a hoard of little kids, but found time for some good fishing.

While the classic guides dominated the charts as usual, they are not always available when I am asked to book a guide with a last minute call. Some of the new names of younger guides did quite well: Chuck Roehl, Dan Siebert and Dave Brown all ended the season with requested dates on the books for next year from the same customers.
