Rod Building Class
Gary Wicks from Gary’s Custom Rod & Reel donates his time to help you learn how to build your own custom rod (Muskie to ice fishing rod of your choice). Gary offers the North Metro Chapter a great deal on custom blanks. You actually start with a plain rod blank and build the handle, add guides and add in your favorite colors. This event is typically held on a Saturday in March/April.
This is the year-long contest for catching fish as a North Metro Chapter Member that runs from January 12th thru Dec 1st on legal waters. Members keep track of their fish by logging them at the Muskies Inc Website. Awards are handed out at the North Metro Banquet for the various Division Winners. Divisions include Masters for Men and Women, Men’s, Women’s and Junior's girls and boys, so everyone can participate.
The North Metro Chapter hosts a tournament in the Luck, Wisconsin area in Western Wisconsin. There are 8 local waters to fish, including Deer, Bone, the Apple River and more. This annual event is scheduled for the second weekend after the Minnesota Muskie Opener the Saturday before Fathers Day. This year June 18th, 2022.
The North Metro schedules weekly outings for various metro lakes for our League Night. The lakes change weekly and you get points for catching fish and for fishing with various partners. The main focus of this event is to get out on the lake, fish with new people, build comrade and just have some fun. Lure Awards are awarded to the top three persons with the most points at the end of the year. There is a participation drawing; each night a person fishes they receive one chance at the end of year drawing for prizes including a St. Croix Tournament Legend Rod.
Our Annual Members Picnic will be held at Bald Eagle Regional Park. The Chapter supplies hot dogs, chips, and beverages. We try to get in a casting game and do a Lure Swap where people bring baits and either swap or sell them. It’s a casual afternoon outdoors and building friendships which hopefully the weather cooperates.
North Metro Members John Van Ingen and John "Geno" Genosky coordinate a big group of people from the Twin Cites and North Metro Chapters to head up to Red Wing Lodge on Lake of the Woods for a yearly event. All members and non-members of Muskies Inc. are welcomed to participate in this great trip.
This full one week trip comes at an incredibly good price. Large numbers of fish are caught every year by the people that attend and they all have a great time! Outing occurs in August.
Gil Hamm Chapter Challunge
This week long event is an International Muskies Inc Event. Chapters typically send 1 or 2 teams to battle for the Lunge Bucket and the bragging rights over the two and half day tournament. Each team is made up of 6 individuals, with each chapter being able to send as many teams as they want. This event is a great way to meet other chapters and their members. This usually occurs in August/September and the winning Chapter determines the date and location for the following years Challunge.
