Chuckmeister Weiss……….

After honing his muskie fishing skills in the backwaters of Southern Ontario, artist Charles Weiss pays VBL a visit in his never ending quest for the elusive “lunge. Pictured above, Chuck unveils his new lure design…the “Fat Bastard” series. From left to right…the “Lil Fat Bastard”, the “Jointed Lil Fat Bastard” and finally the ultimate “Big Fat Bastard”. In the background, the original “Chubby Bastard”.

Proving that “Love is……a small muskie” Diane poses for the camera after catching her very first muskellunge. Chuck, while trying to hide the bitterness, proudly holds the fiesty catch for his lovely bride.

  1. Perchmaster,

    It's only a rumor, but the camp was buzzing about Gord finally catching a decent musky the week we were there. I haven't seen a picture, and I haven't heard if he was fishing the Fat Bastard.


  2. Those crazy eyes are the result of a bad case of muskie fever. The names of the lures are written on the back of each plug. GORD IS STILL HOPING TO CATCH THE VERY RARE LITERARY MUSKIE?
