A note from Mr. Muskie - One of our well known charter fishermen:
To all our customers and fans:
Michigan Law Changes
We wanted to give you a update to some new regulations for fishing Muskie in Michigan waters. The D.N.R. has now implemented a new Muskie tag that is needed to keep a Muskie. I know we practice catch and release but we may encounter a Muskie that dies or we may have it in the live well and they could say that it was in our possession. So the thing to do is obtain a Muskie tag, which are free when you purchase your Michigan licenses. It is also necessary to have both the license and tag in your possession on all fishing trips!
Canada Law Changes
Canada has a new policy that they have implemented to protect their boarders. They have made it so everyone has to check in with their boarder agency C.B.S.A., whether it is a personal trip or on a charter. This would be the same process as if you were crossing their border by land, only we are able to do it over the phone.
We will be calling in on all our trips into Canadian waters! We will have a daily manifest with everyone’s name and birthdate, before we leave the dock. I will handle all the calls and deal with the boarder security issues. This being said everyone will need some picture ID along with some proof of citizenship. We should have no problems or delays due to the calling in to the C.B.S.A. However Canada has different laws than we do, which is where a problem may occur.
They will NOT allow anyone into their country that has been convicted of a felony. Canada considers any drunk driving offences as a felony, however that may be over looked due to number of offences and time lapsed from the offence. It is at the discretion of the officer on the phone. They have restated the law to allow lenience to the drinking offences due to the number of people who had them, so they have left it up to the officer taking the call. Now this will only affect our charters to the extent of fishing in Canada. We don’t anticipate any issues, however if it is found that one of the guests on the charter is NOT allowed in Canada, we can still do our charter and will fish in Michigan waters. The fees for the Canadian licenses purchased will not be refundable. We will not cancel nor reschedule any charters due to the denial of entry into Canada.
This law has been in effect for many years but just recently has been enforced with stringent penalties for noncompliance. We have also found that it is a simple and easy process that is not intended to inhibit any fisherman but only to protect their boarders from illegals and from terrorists.
Fishing Report as of July 12, 2013 - Mr. Muskie Charter Captain
Now July has finally come along and it has brought the warm summer temperatures which have warmed the water temps up in the 70’s and the fast and furious fishing has begun. We have noticed that the numbers of fish caught have increased and we suspect that it will just get better with the summer weather. The fish have started to move a bit out into deeper water and we are now finding them in the 12 to 14 ft. range. The action is more of the typical summer action with the number of fish caught around 10 fish boated!
The Bass season has been open in Canada for a few weeks now as it also has been under way in Michigan water for weeks now. We have been averaging 50-75 Bass caught every trip with an average weight of 3 to 4 lbs. and an occasional 5+ pounder! We have been averaging about 5 dozen per trip!
