Need Help - 49" Muskie on Mantrap

7 posts in this topic

I realize this is a shot in the dark but I am desperate so here it goes.

On July 21st I caught and released a 49" muskie on Mantrap and had left the camera in the cabin, a nearby boat took a digital picture for me and I gave him my buisness card, he said he would email it to me and I haven't got anything yet. He was about 30 years old with a couple of other guys, I remember him saying he was staying at the campground. If any of your friends have talked about how they took a picture of a fish for a guy but lost his business card I could use your help. Any info would be appreciated, thanks.

No, it was a great release, very short fight, barely hooked, only out of the water for only 20-30 seconds, no vertical hold, and it swam away nicely. I suppose any relesed muskie has a chance of not surviving no matter how well it was handeled, but I highly doubt this one didn't make it. That is a sad sight.

Too bad for that fish. So my man here needs some help everyone! I personally believe he caught the 49", but I also would love to see what it looked like! So hopefully someone will see his cry for help and hook a brotha up with the picture! I have a good feeling Brian, that you will see your 49" soon! Keep the faith!

Yeah, he caught it all right. I netted it and gave him plenty of crap about the first time, and probably the last, that he forgot the camera!!

That's one good thing about what happened, I'll never forget a camera again. Or spare batteries for that matter.

Stanley Sterile, you and feach must be the 2 most unprepared fisherman I've ever known. I don't know if you've ever planned out any of the trips you've gone on. I heard a story the other day that you made 2 bad decisions in canada and didn't even have a camera along to prove it. Come on, you have to have a backup in the boat. They teach you that in Kindergarten.

      A buddy and I fished fri. 4-14 had some ice issues once it hit shore and the wave action it was gone pretty quick. We fished about 5.5 hrs  5-fish 39-36-34- and 2 mid 20s. I went back mon. and tues. slow at first between 1-5 7 fish but the biggest was 32in the people out were getting fish also, tues got one right away 36 then it got dead the other people out did not catch any thing either may be the weather, it was pretty brutal and didn't stay to long. Proably wont get to Lowts for awhile now and always enjoy going their. Stay Safe Good Luck Bear55

      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.
