Chicago outdoors: Chicago Muskie Show & some notes

SHARE Chicago outdoors: Chicago Muskie Show & some notes

Pushed through the Chicago Muskie Show quicker than I wanted to today at Harper College in Palatine, but I freshened memories with a bunch of people.

My favorite moment of the day came while I was hanging with my buddy Pete Riedesel and his son Cam while Hall-of-Famer Spence Petors passed.

Cam had just received an award from the Illinois Muskie Tournament Trail earlier in the day for the all the muskies he caught this year. It reminded me of Spence telling me about the things he won as a kid at the outdoors shows.

So it was a moment when they crossed paths.

Then there was Jason Seeberger’s mount of his modern world record muskie.

It was pretty imposing and drew a crowd.

Stuff seen and talked about, more later on a net holster. And I could not resist the wall of Bulldawgs at the first booth.

The rack of Pounders caught my eye.

The excess of it all kind of caught the essence of the muskie show.
