Beware the Three Musky Smile


Catching your first musky is something you never forget. You remember everything about the day, the fish, and the feeling. A picture of that moment is priceless and brings back those wonderful feelings over and over forever.

July will be remembered as a month of hot hots and cold colds. Hot hot days, hot fishing periods, and the ultimate high pressure cold fronts and fish with cold shoulders. In the end we boated over 40 here at The Factory.Not bad.

These pictures are from a day I spent out on the water earlier this month with newbies to the O and some to muskies. James wanted to learn the river and about musky behaviour in the summer. His brother Josh and friend Tom just want a shot at their first muskies.

James was up first to break the ice with a gorgeous barred beauty. Tom started off with a small one and worked his way up. Both the fish and the smile grew until by the time we went in after another amazing sunset that smile was pasted on Tom’s face. I heard he had to have it surgically reversed a week later. Permagrin is real and it happens to people who chase muskies on the O. Beware.

Peace out,


Water temps have been reported to be over 80 F in many areas of the O. HANDLE YOUR MUSKIES WITH EXTREME CARE.
