Mr Muskie Almost.

Recommended Posts

Sorry this is nothing bass related. I just figure you guys would like the story.

A friend and I decided to hit to the river today. He was catching a bunch of walleyes that I would call bait. I threw every thing trying to get a bass. So I tied some type of hard swim bait. It is about 3 ft from me and stop after a twitch. The bait by this time is in less the 3ft of water. All of a sudden I see a white mouth inhale my bait out of no were. As I set the hook I see the blue/green hue of a muskie.

Talk about a fight. I am using 12lb suffix, a curado, and a mh Kislter rod. I knew my drag wound not handle it. So I had to use my thumb to control the fish. It broke the surface a few time. Its taking drag like its no other. It doubles over and my rod gos limp.

Me and my buddy both agree that it was a mid 40 muskie. It could have been bigger just didn't see that munch of it. It also looked like it spawned out. It was very skinny for a muskie of that size.

This was me second ever muskie. Last one was caught on the same gear. I was just using a lip less bait. It got off at the boat. So right now Mr Muskie is up 2-0 with a 15 dollar bait. There will be payback now.

You know what really makes me mad. I cant remember who made the bait. I think I might have to go to gander and see if they have any of them left.

Not a fisherman alive that lands every fish, your equipment is more than adequate.
