  1. On my way back to the launch I found a magical snag that was growing lures. Pretty good $45 haul with an xrap, whopper plopper, and a Muskie mania lil doc in the ...more mix. Thing is so big I thought it was a buoy.

      in this river it's pretty much 1-3 feet maybe 4 at most and there are trees fallen in everywhere. They just go ballistic. Usually mud everywhere. You have ...more to wear waders or water shoes cause you never know when you'll have to go in. I was using a heavy setup cause there's really no room to play with them.
