Video- muskie on the fly

Recommended Posts

Here is the video of the muskie I caught. The video started after I jumped out of the canoe. I caught it a couple days ago and the fish is pictured above in the muskie photosharing section. Turn up the volume to hear a nice "pop", during the fight.

Wow. Perseverance really paid off! Way to stick with it despite the rod malfunction. Nice fish.

AWESOME!

Hope to be doing the same thing myself this weekend.

Out of curiousity, and to make sure I have at least one with : ), what fly did it take?

Yeah, Wi River

Its a TFO rod with a lifetime warranty I mailed it in with 25 bucks thats required, hopefully it gets back really soon

Caught it with about a 6.5" streamer. Not exactly sure what it is called, but its a fly I got from The MN Fly Angler/Thorne Bros. Looks like a whistler pretty much with the big tinsel tail, but it has an upward bent shank and clouser like eyes. You can kind of see it in the actual pictures.

did you call fishcast josho!?

Hey! Hey! no, did at the log pile 20 yards before it though.

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
