Upcoming Events


 Stump Challenge 2020

Be a part of the June 6th virtual 2020 Stump Challenge, 12 Apostles Musky Club vs. Bill's Musky Club.

Due to current circumstances, we are going to do things a little different for the Spring Challenge, ie. virtually.

Here are the guidelines:

You must register with Daland Sheahan to participate. You can contact him by Email or text, or 715-252-9583.

You may fish any Wisconsin waters, fishing hours are from 12:01 Am to 11:59 PM Saturday, June 6, 2020.

We thought if we opened it up to any waters we could accomplish 2 things:

  1) where are people fishing, maybe we could use this info to increase numbers for future outings
  2) if people are concerned about too many people at landings or anything else this could help solve that.

You can register your fish with Daland and he will post results. He  wants which lake or river you were fishing. What time and who was  fishing with you. Email or text, or 715-252-9583.

The usual Spring Stump Challenge rules apply, biggest musky wins possession of the trophy for their Club.

There will be no post Challenge meeting, but we will have a random  drawing for door prizes for those that register which can be picked up  at a future meeting.

We're sure that anyone who participated in this event years prior had a  good time and this would be a way to keep it going until things get back  to normal, or at least a new normal.
