      Keep up the good work. I’m looking forward to hopefully being able to Muskie fish again. Have a new rod I bought last year never used. Wrist get operated on in January ...more so I should be able to use big lures again. Can’t let you catch all of them.

  7. First musky ever !

    36 in. Muskellunge with a River2sea bling spinnerbait

    1. Josh Sommerville 0
      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. Eric Lingenfelter 0
      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. Josh Sommerville 0
