Anglers long to hook a musky. Allusive, sought after and BIG; the muskellunge knows few predators. One of those is man. You fish for walleye, trout and panfish.
You hunt musky.
Once again, fishermen (and fisherwomen) will be competing for up to $5,000 in prizes in the 4th annual Iron River Musky Tournament on the Pike Lake Chain, Oct. 24 and 25. And again, the BATTLE AXE SALOON on the corner of U.S. 2 and Bayfield County B (South) in Iron River will be where the action is ... when you're not out there casting for this rare fish. Position drawing and music at the Battle Axe Saloon from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday.
The catch-n-release, non-transport tournament starts at 7 a.m. Saturday on any Pike Chain lake of your choosing. Judges will be out on the water until 4 p.m.
Food and music at the Battle Axe from 6 p.m. to close Saturday.
Sunday's fishing action continues at 7 a.m. on the Pike Lake Chain until 2 p.m..
Food and awards at the BATTLE AXE from 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday.
