No luck here yet, just went to toss some spinners and small bucktails from shore at some metro lakes to try my luck, but didn't have much time to spend in one area. Just keep the rod in the car and if you happen to be in the neighborhood of a lake w/ muskies, just stop by for a few, its cheaper than the pubs and a safer place to get into a fight.
My Uncle, Cousin and myself went out on Bald Eagle Lake that Sautruday, just for the evening. Only had about 4 hours of fish time under our belts and had one strike on a Bucher Tail Top Raider. An easy 40+ inch fish, but my cousin wasn't paying attention and missed it. But if I could get one on every four hours, I'd be pretty darn happy!!
Went out on Sunday morning, had 3 follows and found a 47" dying floating. We tried to revive it with no luck. It looked like a fisherman caught it and stabbed it in the head 4 times to make sure and kill it and then let it go That really sucks! Just my 2 cents
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
