Fishing & Boating News
The Shawnee Muskie Hunters Chapter of Muskies Incorporated sponsored the Fourth Annual I.H.S.A Muskie Tournament on October 14. The weather was beautiful for a day of young muskie hunters to fish on a lake. The entrants must have an adult in the boat during the event. There were 5 boats and teams that participated. High Schools that participated this year included: Marion Central Catholic from Woodstock, Hinckley-Big Rock, Neuqua Valley from Naperville, East Peoria, Morton, and Marmion from Aurora. The challenge of catching muskies can be a tough task at times but the kids were up for the challenge. There were two boats that caught muskies. At 8:40 A.M. Mike Abbot from Marmion High School in Aurora, IL. caught a 36 inch muskie. The excitement was on as the first fish was caught. The other boats knew that they had to fish hard to get a chance at taking the lead. Later in the morning at 9:08 Aiden Savitski of Hinckley Big Rock High School had a nice hit on his bait and let his fishing partner know to get the net! His partner Jake Anderson of Neuqua Valley High School swiftly picked up the net and after a great battle the beautiful muskie was netted.
