The One That Should Have Gotten Away

Recommended Posts

My friend and I got on a pretty good walleye bite this evening/night. The walleyes were jumping when we hooked them, which is very strange, but we soon figured out why when a giant musky t boned a 15" walleye at my feet and peeled some line before spitting him out. We didn't have musky tackle with us so we just kept slaying the walleyes and pulling them out of the water before the musky could get to them. Then I set the hook into something solid, and was astonished to see my little 1/16oz jighead with a 4" GYCB curly tail stuck in the snout of the monster that had been chasing our walleyes. Somehow my 10lb leader held up for the 10-15 minute battle and I was able to beach the 42" BEAST!

I haven't seen anything but the same 2 mile stretch of river since August. I guess I can't complain but I really do put in a TON of time for a few fish! 3-5 days a week on that river and many hours without so much as a bump!

Good write up.. and awesome fish. I'd rather do that than party any day!! 

People always ask me why I don't go out. I simply have better things to do!
