2023 Youth Spring Tune Up Follow-Up

On Saturday June 10th, 2023 we held our annual Youth Spring Chapter Outing. The outing was held on Holcombe Flowage in Holcombe, WI. We had the best turnout for this in recent years with 8 youth angers; Easton Rabska, Fischer Smith, Colten Karash, Hunter Karasch, Archer McKeeth, Bristyl Pendergast, Gavin Ludeke and Kael Klungness all attended.

The weather was a little warm for June but we had some clouds and rain move in during the afternoon hours. Unfortunately, the muskies had pretty tight lips this day. Two small muskies were caught, probably some stocked fish from a couple years prior. Both were PIT tagged for future research possibilities. Although the adult muskies did not cooperate, many of the young anglers were kept busy with a variety of fish including Pike, Smallmouth, Panfish and even a Walleye.

The lunch menu included brats and hotdogs while we passed out some free musky baits for the young anglers. A musky rod was raffled off, with all youth anglers having a chance to win. I can tell you the excitement on the face of young Colten Karasch was priceless when his name was drawn! Big thank you to Bill Green with Toothtamer Rods/Dreamcatcher Bucktails for the generosity with prizes!

Thanks to everyone who helped put this event together and helped make it a success!
