Best part about this catch was that Ron was using an old spinning reel with old 6lbs test on it and a cheap leader. Just before it hit I asked him about the line. ...more Once I heard that fish hammer it on the surface I rushed to get the trolling motor down to chase him around. After a few good runs, she was in the net and Ron was holding his largest musky. After we watched this guys swim away Ron had an even larger one swing and miss 10 minutes later. Coming back next year for more Pat Hingos. For those of you wishing to make the trip up to Peavy Pond/Paint River, The Michi-Aho Resort is a great place to stay and Pat Hingos, the owner, and his family are all great hosts. Boat rentals available, which is how we did this trip.
