East Fork Lake Musky action, 2011…Chad Roehm made it happen, after 3 years!

The time has finally come after four years of stocking Musky at East Fork Lake! Chad made it happen on Thanksgiving! First good quality Musky we’ve boated. A whooping 38 incher, and perhaps a three year old fish. When Chad hooked it, Dad just sat back and took notes.

It all began after I raised a nice Musky while Bass Fishing. It came clear out of the water and attacked my bait, but missed it. Then, while we continued to Bass fish the same area Chad decided to throw a big Shad bait already tied on. Bang! One got it! It was a ferrocious 38″ East Fork keeper and it climbed all ove Chad’s bait. Chad was pumping the bait with erratic action and enticed it to strike. The fight was on! It was a tail walking Musky that cleared the water three times. What a beauty!

After it was over Becky Powers came down and took these two nice pictures. Then we released this 38″ prize from East Fork as we decided to let it grow for perhaps more fun for the next fisherman. My speculation is there are better days and much bigger Musky coming soon. Perhaps Spring 2012.

East Fork Lake has 6800 11-14″ Muskies stocked since Sept. 2008. 2011 was the forth stocking by the State of Ohio. Also many baby “fry” muskies were stocked and not counted over the four year stocking period. These Muskies are growing fast. The first “Husky Musky/40 incher” is predicted in 2012. I speculate East Fork will be a great Musky Lake…in Chad and Dad’s backyard. We’re hoping.Rick Roehm

Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk began with the Lord. This personal walk with the Lord I speak of turned into extensive Bible studies and later evolved into blogging in early 2000. At present I write, author, and publish several different sites on the Internet. My Blogs contain a vast library of Theological writings, teaching videos, and preaching audios that currently go around the globe for the cause of Christ. I write at Christian Blessings on Wordpress, Holy Hubert Lindsey Group on Facebook, Churches on Trial at Google, publish You Tube videos, record sermons at holy.sermon.net, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio . My secular Blog called Southwestern Ohio Fishing on Wordpress is where I write about experiences with my son and fishing partner Chad where we together enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty mixed with Father God’s creation. At Southwestern Ohio Fishing Blog I also publish favorite recipes for those who enjoy eating and cooking as much as this writer does. Thanks for sharing your time and life with this writer at the Blogs. Here's more access to my ministry and fishing Blog if you'd care to check them out further.
