  1. First musky ever !

    36 in. Muskellunge with a River2sea bling spinnerbait

    1. Yeah they are keeping dibs on a few to see if people are actually turning them loose or taking them home. Has to be 50" befor ya can keep it. They are slowly ...more turning it into a Musky Lake like StoneCoal. Its went down hill for bass since they raised the limit on musky and started letting people keep the bass which used to be catch and release but what can ya do.
    2. it was right on the bank eating the shad that were spawning and when she hit I thought I was snagged at first then it took off. didn’t really jump much until right ...more at end. found stitches in belly and antennae hanging down where DNR has surgically placed a gps tracker which was kinda cool.
    3. Nice Musky EricπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ».Congrats on the 1st. How many times she jump out of water?
