Ever have one of those days???

Recommended Posts

Have any of you guys ever just had a day where everything just seems to fall into place perfectly? I had one of those days today...started the day fishing my first tourney, very nervous and excited at the same time. Pitchinkid talked me into tourney fishing this year and lets just say I think he has created a monster.

Conditions were cold muddy water with clearer water back into the creek arms and sunny skies. The first fish of the day ended up being the biggest of our bag at 5.17 lbs. just missing the big fish mark of 5.38 lbs. That fish set the pace for the rest of the day and I had no idea nor was I prepared for what was about to happen in the next few minutes. Pitchinkid had just finished boating a solid three pounder when I casted over toward the bank with a 1/2 ounce spinnerbait. All hell broke loose as I set the hook on what felt like a runaway dump truck!! The drag started peeling off my Alphas Ito reel and I couldn't stop it. I told Pitchinkid that I would at least like to see it one time so I would know what It was. Well, I got my wish...a tail about 12 inches wide broke the surface and then I knew, big musky!!!

Looking back now after the 15 minute long fight and complete struggle to lift this thing on board the boat, I realize how lucky I was to land a fish this large.  It missed the state record mark by only two measly inches. I have never had anything fight as hard as this fish did. It was crazy!!!

She went 50 inches long and 41 lbs. 11 oz. of Ito reel wrecking mass.

And by the way, to end the perfect day, Pitchinkid and I won the tournament too. WOO HOO!!!

Thats a beauty southern musky. Funny how musky fisherman always catch their biggest bass & walleye when musky fishing with musky sized baits & tackle. And bass fisherman catch their biggest musky while fishing for bass with bass baits & tackle. There are a lot of northern musky guys who would kill for a trophy like that. Nice fish & nice picture too.
