What a beautiful October day. Definitely started cool with some heavy fog but once the sun did its magic, we had calm waters and warm temperatures. Twenty anglers signed up for the one day tournament where the largest fish wins. A total of 13 fish were caught with the winner coming down to a difference of 0.5 inches. August Horvath had a great day catching his personal best of 44″ early then topping that with a really nice 46″ fish. However Ray Elkins, guided by Elmer McClure, was able to land a chunky 46.5″ beauty. In addition to Ray and August’s fish, Elmer McClure got a 32″, Ray Elkins also got a 41.5″ and 34″, David White landed a 41.5″, 38.5″, 36″ and 34″, Mike Cline 33.5″, Scott Donahew 34″ and Jason Chalmers 32″.
Tim Smith and I had a great day introducing Brian and Keith from Cleveland Fishing Company to muskie fishing. We were not able to get a fish in the boat for them but they did have the experience of two hits but no hookups. In both cases, muskies ripped new bulldawgs to show their presence.
For all of us who “Fish the Land”, Cleveland Fishing Company has fantastic apparel to wear proudly as we catch those Ohio muskies. Check out their website: https://clevelandfishingco.com/ Their clothes, hats and sun scarves are very high quality. They also have a steelhead contest going on with our very own Brownie Joe Thomas.
