Butternut muskie and walleye fishing is heating up. I was guiding on Wednesday afternoon and we moved 11 fish, hooked 5 and boated 1. I need to sharpen some hooks!!. Other muskie anglers are telling me of similiar experiences. Walleye anglers are boating some nice fish in the 25" range. The 16th annual Butternut Lake Muskie Tournament will be held next weekend. It was sad to hear that Mike Aus who with his tournament partner Rick Larson won back to back tournaments and also holds the tournament record of 5 legals has passed away. My condolences to his family, Rick and his many friends.For info on the tourny contact Northern Pines resort at 715-762-3001.
Good Luck Fishing
