    1. The ole accidental "I was fishing for walleye and caught a Muskie trick", LOL. Nice surprise, fun catch!
  7. Wanted to try a spot I was looking at on the map this winter once the water warmed up. Got to the spot and there was a boat already there... and we was catching ...more fish too. Watched him catch multiple white bass, a couple smallies and even a steelhead! Get off my spot I scouted man!!! Finally, skies darkened and lightning started getting near. He boogeyed and I slipped in; just enough for three casts to catch this nice 19-1/2" smallie before I had to get the hell outta there myself!
