Great pic and pretty fish!

If this was a college course it would be Muskie 101. Stick with what's working at the opportune time on the right place. This fish is the result of: lot of time out (showing what works), moonrise (leveraging factors to his advantage), and I'd assume an ideal spot or a previously seen fish (again, the result of time out).

Duck's work & skill paid off......again, as I said this last week. No luck here.....

Hats off Duck, nice fish!

Thanks all,

This could be the fish I lost a month and a half ago. Same spot, same bait, same time, diffrent outcome.

Your on the money. Time on the water, knowing where the fish are and what baits they want to eat. Pretty easy. LOL

Cant stop looking at the pic. Its all I think about. And what stinks, I cant get out again till next Wed.

I need to find someone to make me some aftershave that smells like a musky. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Congrats DUCK

Shamalex,

It very well could have been. The fish didnt want to get in the net. Half in, half out, thrashing around. Was so happy to see her finaly get in the net. Was very happy when I seen how big she was. Tell your wife im sorry, but if I get another that big she just may hear me again. LOL

Setterguy,

Nope, thats my dads boat that my sister and bro inlaw were using.

Thanks again all, Im still pumped up!!

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
