Nice, way to go Erik... I was on WB earlier in the evening like 5:00pm to 8:30, and we had one follow. Guess we should have been out MUCH later.

BTW don't you work Erik? haha

Erik,

Nice looking fish!

Curious: Any observations in that 1/2 hour window? Anything change weather-wise? Or simply the right place at the right time?

Erik,

It'll sound hokey and dumb, but we just lost our dad and about 5 minutes before the first fish I saw a shooting star and thought maybe the old guy was watching - maybe he helped a bit too. smile

I may just chalk it up to dumb luck!! As far as the weather, nothing major but I did notice a bank of clouds moving in AFTER I got the first one - they may have been there all along and I just didn't notice. I wish I was better at paying attention to that stuff. There were also a few very distant lightning flashes but nothing dangerous. It was also really weird that the water temp where the fish were was about 2.5 degrees warmer than the first couple spots where I had not action - I was surprised to see such a difference in temp in close proximity to each other. I found water as cold as 68.5 last night. These were also my first fish on the big 13 by Mayhem. I also missed two other fish ealier in the night. I was on a bad streak so I hope this will be the slump buster. I was also happy to have two safe releases both for me and the fish.

Quit being so humble... you've forgotten more things about WBL than anybody who knows that lake grin

Way to go on a multi-fish night... like CJAC said, you definitely put in whole lot of time on WBL... and Im fairly sure many of us will be expecting more pictures from you when the fall really arrives...

HugoBox even got me out tonight. But, of course, it was Gus this time who got the lucky lure... a 42-43" at about 12:30. I'll post picks later, it was a beauty nice and wide. This was his first musky on purpose, and biggest fish ever.

Erik had two strikes next to the boat but didn't hook them, and I went NADA, as usual smile

Here are pics of Gus' 42":

    • That is what I am trying to figure out.    Considering the party in the white House the only reason he/she got the sentence changed has 100% to do with his/her corporal Klinger syndrome.    And if that is the case the President should just walk away today before he causes any more harm.
    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
