It is always fun to catch a musky, the fight is always impressive. Fortunately, I got this guy in the boat on a swim bait with my stout musky rod. Unfortunately, a few casts before this I lost a giant fishing with a bass set-up. The fish exploded out from under the pads as I jerked the plastic near them. I really thought I was going to catch it for a while, I had the fish on for about 3 minutes, taking me around the boat, and peeling of drag. I knew it was a matter of time, before his sharp teeth would cut the line...bummer. Wind blown shoreline in the middle of the afternoon.
