Keep in mind that I am always looking for images for our newsletter; fish, sunsets, sunrises, other anglers fishing, equipment, anything fishing related. I can use them all. Large, unedited images are best. Thanks.
JJ - bug prolly looks familiar from the OOFS site. The answer is NO I've not FF'd for musky on the fly before, well I did once earlier this summer and after that I started investigating more and found NMA. I had to expand my opportunities beyond the local streams which as you know have been horrible all summer long. I was ready for a new challenge and it looks like I have it here. Thanks for the note.
I also should add that the UN2 area has really been pounded that past two years. I don't believe that is good for this fishery. But the tubers won't leave it. This is something I say often, but nobody really listens.
I think the numbers of muskies caught this July in the river, including those under 40 inches, are down compared to the last few years. Also, there have been no sub-30s reported, which is unusual and a bit concerning. I think there have been about 22 fish reported for July. Last year there were 38, and that was a slow year. But it may be too early to tell. I know the tubes and jigs have not been real productive, but the early morning and night trolling have been.
