The University of Esox will add a new school to its schedule in 2017 — the Fall Trophy Hunt — to be held the weekend of October 20-22.
The new school will be held at Fibber’s Restaurant and St. Germain Lodge, located on the shore of Big St. Germain Lake in Vilas County, Wisconsin. The resort is owned by famed Vilas guide Rob Manthei and his wife Kaye, and offers comfortable cabins and great food.
“We’ve had many requests for a fall school,” said Musky Hunter Editor and TV show host Jim Saric. “There are lots of new anglers in the sport, and this school offers a chance to learn cutting-edge fall tactics.”
The school will wrap eight hours of seminars around two full days of fishing. Seminars will focus on livebait techniques, trolling, fall musky location and more. “Anglers can take what they learn in a seminar and immediately apply it on the water. It’s the ultimate learning experience,” Saric said.
Big St. Germain Lake is well known for musky fishing, and more than 350 musky lakes are located within an hour’s drive. “It’s an ideal location,” said Musky Hunter Managing Editor Steve Heiting. “We have musky lakes that range from large to small, and clear water to dark. Regardless of the conditions, we’ll be ready.”
Besides seminars, the school package includes three nights lodging, all meals, and a chance at many door prizes. Guided packages are also available.
Back for 2017 are the popular Summer Musky Tactics and Canada Musky Adventure schools.
Summer Musky Tactics will be held June 9-11, also at Fibber’s Restaurant and St. Germain Lodge. The school package includes eight hours of seminars which focus on summer musky fishing. Two nights lodging, all meals, and a chance at many door prizes are included in the package, and fishing times are spread throughout all three days of the school. Guided packages are also available.
The Canada Musky Adventure school will be held July 15-23 at Sandy’s Blackhawk Island Camp on Lake of the Woods’ famous Northwest Angle. “This school always sells out quickly because we hold it during a peak time on at an awesome location,” said Heiting. “Many of our students catch their personal best musky during this fun week.”
Twelve hours of seminars, twice-daily information sharing sessions, a day fishing with an instructor, all meals, lodging and docking for the week, and a chance at many door prizes are included in the Canada school package.
