Musky Mania 07, September 1990
Musky Mania 07 was held in Sept. 1990 and was the coldest Musky Mania ever. We fished Star Lake out of Sayner and it was cold, windy, sleet, and rain. A terrible day to be on the water.
Gary Winters and I start fishing a bay close by the landing and I hook a fish right away and think I may have the tournament won. Get it to the boat and it is a stinking Northern. Damn. Fished for another half hour and then to shore at a campsite. Built a roaring fire and popped the top on a few refreshments. Had lunch at the Star Lake boat launch.
Only smart ones were Helmut and his wife that spent the morning back at Evergreen Lodge in the hot tub. John Schmidt saved the day and caught a 30” Musky Sunday on High Lake.
