Gil Hamm: A 53-incher prefishing

SHARE Gil Hamm: A 53-incher prefishing

COOK, Minn.–Things picked up today in prefishing for the Gil Hamm Memorial Chapter Challunge on Lake Vermilion, including a 53-incher caught by Glenn Jaros.

His muskie is the toast of prefishing. Jaros is a member of the Chicagoland Muskie Hunters chapter of Muskies Inc., which is hosting this year because they won last year.

The Gil Hamm runs Wednesday through Friday.

Up until we heard about his fish, we thought Steve Statland, my partner, had one of the biggest caught in prefishing with his 41.5-incher.

He caught it about 10 a.m. Tuesday on a spotted gold Kickin Minnow. Then soon had another follow.

At least, it gave us some encouragement for the competition.

It is for real tomorrow and I think the weather and the full moon will have the muskies going.

We need one like Jaros’.

I am part of the Grumpy Old Men team, one of five six-man teams from CMH. The other team members are Paul Hortenstine, Statland, Brent “Bert” Cunningham and twin brothers Bob and Don Roman.
