Mid-Week Trip Report: Musky Country Outfitters (Hayward, WI)
Jim and I are having a wonderful week here in Wisconsin fishing with Musky Country Outfitters. This part of the country is breathtaking... amazing beauty and remoteness. I never thought a domestic destination could still be so remote and wild. In just a few days, we saw snapping turtles, bald eagle with yearlings in a nest, swans, white-tailed deer, and other wildlife. This region is the outdoor paradise and fishing is a way of life for the residents.
We are lodging on Spider Lake and in the midst of a myriad of lakes and rivers... there is water everywhere and it seems to be fish everywhere too! In addition to the glamor species Musky, Jim and I are also equally impressed about the other available species that are willing to eat the fly. Northern Pike, Walleye, Largemouth, Trout, and awesome Smallmouth. We are getting a true sampling of their waters and species this week. Their guides are total professionals and they run an excellent program.
Here are a few photos so far from our trip... Fish On!
