Boy's Weekend

Recommended Posts

So boy's weekend at the cottage last weekend. The boy's wanted to go Walleye fishing in the nice cozy boat, and I well, have a lot of money invested in musky over the last few years - I'm going musky fishing, "Who's coming with me?"...... (Insert cricket sounds) . So no one was in my boat for this trip except me and my cradle (FisherPete Styles). Trolled around open water noticing tons of musky boat hitting the shore lines/points hard and all the bait-fisherman were out in 30 FOW. Marked all kinds of open water fish in the middle of nowhere (until my battery died on me). A little after 10 am my rod screams, bent like the Uglystik commercial. "Dang rocks" I say, figuring a ran shallow with my unit being dead. Shut the motor off to remove my snag, pull the rod out of the holder then I feel the headshake and run. Whoo! After reeling in 120' of line and two awesome jumps close to the boat she's in the cradle. 46" fish in a 48" cradle.

Nice fish, congrats.

 

It gets the heart pumping extra hard when you're solo eh ?

 

Heart pumping... more of a pant soiling, when I got my first look as she submarine'd up towards the surface :o. "What do I do now?"

 

...Any one, Why is my pic so small?

Great report!!! :Gonefishing::thumbsup_anim:

 

You did good landing that Ski solo like that!!! :clapping:

 

Good job on the self timer pic too!!! :thumbsup_anim:

 

Yes but I lost the other 2 Musky's that were on the other 2 hooks of the lure at boat side. If I had someone with me I could have landed all 3 at once!!!

 

I had this little guy two weekends before as practice landing them solo and figured out the timer thing..... look familiar!

Genetics. You can by all kinds of liquids and pills nowadays to help with that (so I hear :rolleyes: )

Congrats on the PB musky! Landing a fish of that size solo is a daunting task, but you managed to do so!

Great story, thanks for sharing!
