Mercer, Muskies, and Manly Work

Mercer, Muskies, and Manly Work

Well its back to reality! Back from the North woods of Mercer Wisconsin and time to buckle down and get my other work done.

It was an enjoyable trip with some great people. We were able to get all the necessary work done around the cabin as well as winterize the cabin for the upcoming long and cold days/nights.

I also had the opportunity to get out and do some fishing on Sunday with a local guide Bobby Orr. Bobby took myself and Lisa Heberling, with Mercer Chamber of commerce out on a half-day Musky trip. Although we didn’t raise any fish we got the opportunity to learn some new water as we fished the Upper section of the Turtle Flambeau Flowage. This was a new body of water for me and I will certainly be returning.

Bobby has been guiding for muskies for over 10 years now on the Turtle Flambeau Flowage, or TFF, as well as the Manitowish chain of lakes. These bodies of water are located up in Iron and Vilas counties of Wisconsin and are two incredible bodies of water. Not only in their size but also in their diverse fisheries.

During our trip we focused on the Turtle Flambeau Flowage and launched out of The Hideaway resort. Bobby resides in Madison for part of the year, but most of his time is spent in his cabin in Mercer at The Hideaway.

With all his knowledge and his enthusiasm for the sport of Musky fishing, Bobby Orr is one of those guides in the Northwoods that I would highly recommend looking up the next time you are up in Northern Wisconsin. If you want to learn new water, new techniques, and catch some big Muskies, then get in touch with Mr. Orr. You will not be disappointed.
