Muskie season begins... in style!

Recommended Posts

After a very very very long wait, it was finally slime time... opening weekend... and there on the Saturday, I sat in class. Whaaaat? Yes class for my apprenticeship program. Sigh. For the long-term good I suppose.

 

After a few setbacks on Sunday morning, the boys already out and into a bunch of fish, I decided to head out solo for the afternoon. Didn't see a single fish until some nasty weather approached... and as the old saying goes, muskies will eat before a storm! This fish inhaled an entire magnum bulldawg - do you think she was hungry? Getting good solo pics is not the easiest but these turned out pretty darn good. 47" is actually my best opening day fish ever. Gallie - thanks for the tip - this might have just been the fish you guys saw!

 

Cheers

Pete

No worries pete! If we couldnt have her im glad you were the one to land her! And i thought i would get laughed at for throwing big rubber around on opener but thats all they would touch.

Nice fish! I kept on bringing in pike after pike on my 9" shadzilla. I didn't see anyone else out throwing big rubber.

I hope some of those pike made it to your dinner plate! That's a beauty way to start the season Pete. We had a good day out too (4 for 6) but I would trade them all for that one!

And fish cant read especially muskies, they always say match the hatch too, but many times go against the masses for results
