The Spring Outing was a great success! Weather Saturday changed around 5 times from what they were calling from on Friday but everyone did what they needed to do!
38 anglers signed up and a total of 17 fish were caught. Saturday was windy, little misty for an hour around 11am til 4pm hit and it decided to rain til 9pm. The steak dinner was great, with Elmore McClore winning the lure board and Jeff Dvorak winning the 50/50 raffle.
Sunday was much better weather, thinking the fishing would be better, turns out Saturday produced more fish. That’s Muskie fishing though. Thank you everyone who attended. Our next event is a 1 day event at Leesville, June 8th. We will post info on it soon.

The Ohio Huskie Muskie Club will be kicking off the 2019 Summer Contest Raffle at the Ohio Musky Show January 11th thru January 13th. The prize will include a one week stay at the Studio Cabin donated by Leesville North Fork Marina. Newly remodeled (see pictures below), the cabin is a great home base to chase Leesville’s muskies. While fishing, you will be able to cast to your heart’s content with a custom rod built by Excalibur Rodworks’ Fred Lederer. Check out the pictures below, the rod is built on a St. Croix blank with the finest components. The rod will be perfect for jerk baits and jigging and is equipped with a Calcutta 400 B reel spooled with 80# Power Pro line. To store those jerk baits and Bondy baits, you will have a fantastic tackle box built by Muskie Train’s Mike Mordas. The box is perfect for storing all size baits and is built to give you a view of everything in the box at one time. By the time you receive your prize, the tackle box will be full of new lures from a wide selection of great lure manufacturers. To measure your giant, you will also receive a brand new bump board from the folks at MuskieBumper, the best boards out there. Finally, to keep you cool and hydrated during those hot summer days, you will have a Yeti cooler to keep sandwiches, drinks and snacks cool and fresh donated by InCom Supply of Pittsburgh. The retail value of this grand prize easily exceeds $2,000. Tickets will be $20 each or 3 for $50.
