First Female to Win Muskie Trophy in 49 Years
17-year-old, Kristin Tanner of Elkview catches 44-1/2’ Muskie. Most 17-Year-Olds girls want clothes, purses, jewelry, or other items, but Kristin Tanner was ecstatic to receive a new Muskie Rod & Reel for her birthday and that new setup landed her the award of the first female to capture the 2017 trophy from WV Musky Club in their 49-Year history with her catch of the 44-1/2’ Musky near Blue Creek. Kristin has been fishing for Muskies for three years with her mentor Mac Myers teaching her the ropes of Muskie fishing. Congratulations and good-luck for 2018.
