After 3 or 4 casts downwind and down current my next cast was up current and into a brisk 20mph wind. Casting into the wind made my bait caster backlash. Took me about 30 seconds to untangle the bird nest and once the slack was out of the line I thought I was snagged on the river bottom... but the snag pulled back... hard... FISH ON!15 minute fight ensued. My first Muskie, 20lbs 4 oz and 42"

      My next 5 casts would have been up wind/up current and let the spinner drift down current! Sweet story great catch!
