MASSENA — After trying to work around flooding on the St. Lawrence River in 2019 and the arrival of COVID-19 in 2020, Capt. Donald J. Lucas has closed Muskie Magic Charters following 34 years of operation and entered into a new venture — retirement.

“In 2019 we shut down because of the flooding on the St. Lawrence, which created hazardous navigation, and 2021 and 2022 we closed because of COVID. Most of our business is from out of town or out of state and we did not want to contribute to the spread of the virus by bringing outsiders here,” Mr. Lucas said.
