Well... first open water musky attempt of the season and i got myself the coveted and elusive 50” nj musky! What a fish, i have no words! Work’s computer network got hacked giving me the day off... i couldnt get anyone to fish with me... i closed the garage door on my boat... left my rods on the steps... broke one of my rod guides putting them in the truck after going back to get them... it really wasnt looking good for me today until this momment 😂

      nice fish man!!! I had the exact same day but with crappies. got half way across the lake and didn’t have any rods. found the biggest school of crappies I’ve ever ...more seen, caught a 13” and dropped a 300$ rod in the drink...
