My cousin Lt. Mark a Fireman of Newark NJ with a nice Round Valley Reservoir Laker.
Still very windy today but I have been dieing to catch and cook some trout. The day was warm until the wind picked up and ruined the troll. I lost 3 due to the wind ...more throwing my boat any which way it wanted. I did land this 18 1/2 incher perfect for my smoker.
Breaking in Chris's new boat The Essential. We decided to get revenge after being skunked last trip. our first spot was a dud so I suggested a move. even though ...more we were fishing for walleye, I had to be prepared after getting cut off by many toothy monsters in the past! after commanding chris's new ipilot which we named Hooper, to hold us on the spot my lure comes to a dead stop ticking off the weeds. I set the hook out of instinct and begin battle with this sea monster! after an intense fight chris tries to net it with the walleye net and it goes berserk! breaking the net at the hinge! it dives under the boat and I thought it was over! but I was able to get it back to the bost on my light walleye gear...captain chris hanging over the side grabbed the razor sharp toothed monster with his bare hands but it slapped him with its tail soaking him. 3 times it took to get a good grip and hoisted it into the essential! my very first musky I ever landed after losing close to $100 in musky donated lures!
