The fishing leagues final event was on Sunday October 25 on Eagle Lake Gavin Smythe fishing with his Dad Steve caught the only fish that day a nice 45 ¼”. That fish puts Gavin in second place in the league dropping his dad into third place.
It was a fun year for the league five fish were caught with stories of just as many being lost after being hooked and of course some more near misses, but that’s muskie fishing as I know it.
Overall turnout was about the same as it was last year however there were some new anglers to join the league. Some anglers fished most every event and there will be a fishing rod given away in a drawing as a reward for participation.I am hoping to grow participation next year and have had a couple of people say they are planning to fish the League next year. Please consider joining the league next year as we are a fishing club.
Matt Olson 49 and 42 39 points $170

Steve Smythe 38 12 points $100
Gavin finished second in overall standings but did not make a $50 donation so he is not eligible for cash prizes. There was a total of $400 in donations of which of which $80 will go to stocking and rearing. There was no third place payout this year as no one qualified and that money will carry over to prize pool for next year
