Stray Casts will intelligently report and observe, hopefully with a touch of wit, on daily occurrences, reports and releases related to Chicago-area outdoors from bucks to bass to birds to bugs

Muskie winners: Free entry (Update 2)

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Once again John Daley has offered free entry to 10 people to the seminar/fundraiser for the South Side Muskie Hawks the Sunday after Thanksgiving . . . free, if they answer a question from me.


Yes, the photo is a hint. (And I happen to like the photo.)

Last year, I asked too hard of a question, I think, and only had a couple right answers.

So let me try this:

What is the best numbers body of water for muskie in Illinois?

I have a very specific body of water in mind. However, considering how muskie fishermen are or can be, I will accept another answer if somebody makes a convincing argument.

Send answers to or post below.

Since we have STRAY CASTS, I may just update the names of winners on here, if I get that energetic or have that much time. And I will call John, he of the Old School, with the names of winners, and he will let them in the door for free.

Here are the event details.

Gregg Thomas of Battle the Beast Guide Service headlines the seminar on Sunday, Nov. 29.

Doors open at 11 a.m. It runs until something like 5 p.m. at Marie's Ashton Place. 341 W 75th St., Willowbrook.

Raffles include guided trips, trips and a boat & trailer from Basa's Marine.

Tickets are $8 in advance at places like Fishing Connection in Tinley Park, Basa's Marine, or JJ's Bait & Tackle in Bridgeview. At the door, tickets are $10.

Questions, call Daley at (773) 704-3401.

UPDATE 1: Well, I had planned to list this in the Sun-Times on Sunday. Not sure there will be spots left by then. I have three acceptable answers by early afternoon, only one exactly what I wanted.

UPDATE 2: i will run it in the paper on Sunday, even though I think we are already at six OK answers by now. I suspect John will make room if there's a couple extra win free entrance.
