My buddy Matt's 39-inch tournament winning musky from the MI22 Spring Tournament
on Greenwood Lake.
I'm sure the lack of posts has been noticeable to my clan of dedicated readers. For that, I apologize. I had every intention of keeping this blog going with vengeance when I finished my 366th day of fishing, but I did not. The fact is that I got very comfortable NOT writing. I had said many times that although I was still enjoying fishing every day, I was not overly enjoying blogging about it.
I had found a little chunk of extra time when I wasn't writing, and I've been enjoying spending it with Lindsay. That being said, I'm hoping I've gotten over my funk and plan on making sure I post my reports.
Although I have not been blogging, I have been doing plenty of fishing. I've been musky fishing almost every week with my buddy Matt from Muskies Inc. I seem to be on a bit of a dry spell, but Matt has been on fire. He's put a ski in the net the last four times we've been out, including the biggest fish on the Muskies Inc Chapter 22 Spring Tournament on Greenwood Lake. Congrats bro, it's been a pleasure fishing with you and I'm looking forward to doing it some more.
I also gave a little attention to carp fishing with Chris Martalus yesterday, but they gave me no love either.
It's now June 16th, water temperatures are rising and I will probably stop musky fishing soon. Once the water gets to be 80 degrees, a musky's chance of survival is far lower after a battle to the boat. Most seasoned musky anglers don't target them during the summer, and I'd like to do my part to preserve the fishery.
Bass fishing will come to a crawl with the hotter, longer days and the carp will also succumb to the summer doldrums. There is one fish, however, that thrives in bathwater, and that is where my focus will turn until I return from my honeymoon at the end of September.
Summertime is catfish time.
So, my apologies for not being more consistent with my blogging. I know some people really look forward to reading and I should have been more thoughtful. I will do my absolute to post more reports and adventures, and I sincerely thank everyone for their support.
