Summer 2013

Travis Frank


I have been completely spoiled for another summer.  No surprises there, right?  I've seen a lot of new water this summer along with a few of my favorite haunts.  Adventure and trying new things has me really excited.  Muskies, walleye, bass, cats and more.  Along with incredible fishing, the people that I've been able to share it with have really made me realize how lucky I am.  The furthest distance someone has traveled to join me has been Japan.  He also gave me a few baits to try and it only took about 7 casts to find out if muskies like them.  They do.  Life is always good on the water!

If you're reading this around September 17th, which is the date that I am typing it, then you should probably drop everything and go throw a muskie lure into any muskie lake.  They are simply destroying all things swimming at the moment.  In fact, as I look out the window the conditions look very muskie-ess.  With that said, I'll post a few of my favorite pictures from the past few weeks and then I have got to run - the water is calling.  Blessings to you and may the Big Guy up above spoil you with a fish of a lifetime...or two!
