Summer Musky Tactics School
Next Up For Steve Heiting
The annual Summer Musky Tactics school produced by the University of Esox will be held June 7-9 and will feature a room full of students hungry to learn about musky fishing.
“We have a fully-enrolled school, just as we always have for this event,” said Steve Heiting, who is co-owner of the University of Esox with Musky Hunter TV host Jim Saric. “It’s cool that there are so many anglers coming into this great sport and willing to shorten their learning curve through this weekend event.”
The school features eight hours of seminars wrapped around a weekend of musky fishing. It’s held at St. Germain Lodge and the adjoining Fibber’s Restaurant, located north of St. Germain, Wisconsin.
“St. Germain Lodge and Fibber’s are as important to this school as our seminars,” Heiting said. “Rob and Kaye Manthei have a great facility and feed our students well, and there are about 350 musky lakes within an hour’s drive of the resort. We have a combination of great seminars, lodging, food and location.”
Seminars at the school focus on the summer musky. While the school is taught in northern Wisconsin, the techniques are applicable anywhere. “A musky is a musky,” Heiting said. “Every location has subtle nuances, but a lot of what we teach works everywhere.”
Instructors will discuss summer patterns and techniques, trophy fundamentals and timing, and landing and release, to name a few of the topics.
Joining Heiting, Saric and Manthei as instructors at this event are northern Wisconsin guides Kevin Schmidt, Doug Smith, Charlie Buhler, Joel DeBoer and Jeff Van Remortel.
While the Summer Musky Tactics school is full, people can still sign up for the University of Esox Canada Musky Adventure which will be held at Sandy’s Blackhawk Island camp on Lake of the Woods July 13-20.
