The Muskies get on the prowl this time of the year. This year I've landed one and had a total of two follows on three outings. 3 years ago I landed a 36 incher on 4lb test and a jig while fishing for w's. I'll bet your sweetheart is ready of another trip to Island. Aint fishin fun.

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.

      Pretty sure I know who that is. Won't mention any names tho. What did he get busted for?
