Muskies in the Newspaper

8 posts in this topic

Hiya -

After the justifiable crabbing about muskie coverage in the Strib recently, I thought I'd point out the other side of the coin from the other side of the river. This past Sunday's Pioneer Press (which I finally had time to read last night) had a very cool profile of 'Musky Tom' Wehler by Chris Niskanen. Very cool piece, and Tom is absolutely one of the A-#1 good guys in the muskie world. One of my favorite people in the business... I haven't looked, but I imagine you can find the story online at the PP HSOforum.

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

Yes, the story is still on the PP HSOforum. Great read!

One of my goals is to head up there and fish with him for a day or two. The guy is a hoot.....best way to say it. If you've ever talked to him or read his posts you'll know what I mean.

Anyone that says "Keep on rockin'" is a guy I want to fish with!

Fished with Muskie Tom a number of times and he is a class act all the way. If you ever get the opportunity to fish with Tom, you will be laughing the entire time. Very entertaining person and really does know how to find the spot on the spot up on the "V". I will be looking for that article.

Good little video. Got it in an email from Tom this morning. One of the perks of having worked with Pearson, Walsh and Johnson...... smile

Tom is definately on my "have to hire" guides before I quit fishing for these crazy fish.

Just wanted to add something about Tom that you don't see from too many guides. And he doesn't know me and I don't know him, but I thought this was pretty admirable. Hunter and I were on V a couple weeks ago. We had a few we had seen earlier and left them, hoping to come back on them at sunset/moonrise if nobody beat us to the spot. So we kept an eye on it from a distance and moved in just prior to primetime and surprisingly there weren't a bunch of guys out for a Sat nite. Tom pulls up with his client on the next reef and camps on it just like we were - maybe he knew of a big one there or just knew it to be a good spot. Anyway, as prime time approaches, he sits down and lets his guy take all the casts. I thought that was pretty cool, because we all know that in a given period of time, a boat will be lucky to boat one or two fish, and if there's two of you throwing, I think your chances of you being the one who does the catching just got cut in half. So I thought that was pretty neat.

ps: I lost my focus and blew one in the eight!

Must be the same article in the Outdoor News this week.

Would definitely love to fish with Musky Tom someday.

    • Everything turned out awsome, I'll definitely be hanging the bellies again. Cold smoked then heat with more smoke.
    • love the answer thirdeye!!!!  hang onto that last bottle!!
    • Should be some good games today, I'm definitely rooting for the Falcons and Steelers but I don't know man. The Pats just seem to play the best team ball in the League. Guys step up and perform at every different position.  The Packers are just scary in the post season, not so much the whole team but that dirty dog Aaron Rodgers.    I hope they both turn out to be competitive and exciting.

    • You miss the Bush administration? Howso considering the Obama administration was pretty much the same only cooked a little longer?
    • many of my 2nd graders have more frontal cortex development........
    • My trailer is a bit over 20 years old. It was redecked 10-12 years ago with 3/4 plywood decking that was not treated and that lasted about 10 years as well so it seems a decade is the lifespan of regular plywood left outside with no treatment.    I replaced the deck for a second time this year and used treated plywood so we will see if that makes it more than a decade. I would suspect you might expect at least that much life from advantech even though it doesn't seem to be rated for continuous exposure if I read it right.
    • That's what I miss most about the Bush administration. Sure, they were evil, but at least they were freaking competent. Sure, they lied a lot, but at least it wasn't about easily disprovable things like crowd size. When they lied, they lied to further their agenda, not to mask their hurt fee fees.   All Presidents are ridiculed.
      This is the only one who takes it personally. Such a baby. Sad!
