Join us on Wednesday January 10 th 2018 when Canadian Musky Guide Steve Herbeck
will be talking “Musky Fishing on Eagle Lake!” Steve was the owner of Andy Meyers
Lodge on Eagle Lake along with partner Don Hunt. Herbeck has been guiding for over
29 years in Wisconsin and in Canada. He promises a "real meat and potatoes
presentation, no advertisements". Some may know or remember that Steve guided
anglers to 2 of the biggest fish caught in the state of Wisconsin. A 43# 6-ouncer in 1987
and a 47# 10 ounce giant in 1992. One of the best musky anglers to ever fish Eagle
Lake. Steve guides for muskies on a daily basis. From the musky opener in mid-June
through the close of the season, Herbeck favors a variety of structures including: reefs,
flats, islands near deep water or extensive food shelves. “A multi-dimensional island or
cluster of islands having weeds, rocks, and slots that’s just out from one of these areas
is about as good as it gets”, Herbeck claims. Productive lures are minnow lures or
“twitch baits” such as the Slammer, Crane Bait, or Jake, particularly in perch or walleye
patterns, along with bucktails and top-waters. If you plan on fishing Eagle Lake in
Canada in 2018, don’t miss the information packed seminar!

Admission is $10.00/person at the door. Dinner is available to anyone arriving
before the meeting and wishing to order from the menu. Updates on FRV outings,

out to see this awesome musky presentation!
