Minnesota Musky Guide and Report

What a busy summer here at L.O.A.!  All of us fishing guides have been very busy fishing Leech Lake, Gull Lake and Mille Lacs.  I have had the opportunity to film a couple of musky shows with both In-Fisherman T.V. and Jason Mitchell Outdoors.

 Fishing muskies as many of you know and some don't isn't an easy task and then add a camera to the mix makes a challenging task.  My first trip was to LOTW with Jeff Simpson, the Swede (In-Fisherman Cameraman) in hopes to capture a segment for In-Fisherman T.V.  We arrived with high hopes, fresh arms and sharp hooks.  We planned to be there for 5 days depending on the bite.  It turned out we only needed one to capture the show which included a 50 incher to close.  Make sure to tune into this coming Fall/Winter to see the show.  It's going to be a good one.

Between guiding on Leech Lake and Mille Lacs for Walleyes my second filming duties was with good friend Jason Mitchell.  Our goal was to show the story of how Minnesota Musky fishing is the best it has ever been.  Jason along with Joe Andersen, my brother and producer, meet me at Chase on the Lake on Leech Lake.  Ready to rock we headed out the first morning and only 20 minutes into the trip Jason sets the hook on a big fish.  After a spectacular jump, that Joe captured on film, we got the monster musky into the net.  Hooks out, a fish hold, quick measurement and a release.  We had a start to the show and not in a better way.  Jason landing a 53 inch musky which was his largest to date!  Again we ended up with an amazing day fishing with several other muskies boated and lost.  Joe captured some super amazing jump scenes so make sure to tune into

Another big one for the show

It costs these shows so much to come and film and for them to trust me to put them on fish is a great honor!
