SEPTEMBER 14, 2021
SPEAKER: ERIK JACOBSON
Come meet Erik Jacobson at our first in-person meeting since March of 2020 and learn about some of his fall tactics. Erik's video "25 Seconds and a 50-Pound Muskie" has gathered 365 thousand views in only four months on YouTube. Erik lives on Mille Lacs, and most of his largest Muskies have been caught there. Erik's fall fishing is not limited to only Mille Lacs. He has fished extensively in Canada, and his Just Big Muskies video series has a lot of Canadian footage also.
Meetings are at 7 pm on the second Tuesday of the month except July and August. Meetings are held at the Bloomington Events Center, Knights of Columbus on 1114 American Blvd W, Bloomington, MN.
