Greetings! New guy introduction via a forum post. My name is Bob Foss, and I live in Nottingham, PA. My wife and I moved here from Minnesota two years ago. Started muskie fishing 31 years ago when a guy took me to LOTW out of Nestor Falls, Ontario and I caught two my first day. Been hooked ever since.
We have lived in multiple different parts of the country, but almost every year managed at least one week up on LOTW, most years it was two. For the old timers, when I was in my mid to late 20's I ran the "Muskie Fever" mail order catalog for the Thorne Brothers. Pre-internet, sold stuff via a catalog, toll free # and sportsman shows.
Prior to us moving to PA, I sold my boat, was convinced we would get a bigger boat for the Bay. Chartered a few times didn't like it, so this spring I bought an oldie but goodie '95 Ranger 681T that I am slowly bringing back to life as a dual purpose walleye / muskie machine.
I travel for work, so haven't made it to a chapter meeting yet. While still planning on two weeks a year in Canada, excited to get started fishing local waters. Doing some research there appears to be lots of options, including the river 20 minutes from my house.
Looking forward to eventually making it to either an event or a meeting in the very near future.
