- To keep busy after work, people find many different leagues to join. Golf, bowling, softball. In the Northwoods, there are Musky fishing leagues.The Monday Night Musky League has been around for 21 years. This year there are 10 teams competing, with 6 fishermen per team. They go out on the Eagle River Chain and rotate between other area lakes. The league lasts for 12 weeks over the summer... and there are awards given each Monday and at the end of the season.It's a unique way to spend time on the water.
"It gives you a reason to fish instead of sitting at home after working all day," said Gary Myshak of Eagle River. "After fishing from 4pm until 9pm every Monday night, you have a designated and everyone meets and brags about their day."Wednesday night at 10pm in our Northwoods Spotlight, we'll meet the oldest angler in the league. He's 83 years young.
