fuckin fish pictures 018.jpgWell after a few days of fishin for everything but muskies, I decided it was time to get the monsters back in the boat and leave the little fish alone.  My good friend and fellow guide Matt and myself decided to hit the water on this absolutely gorgeous Monday morning.  After nearly 3 hours of daylight passing before we finally got on the lake, we took our chance with the not so good conditions, and well as you can see, it paid off huge for Matt.  We fished a total of 5 spots, seeing a fish on every spot but one.  It was only a mere 15 minutes between when he lost a fish that was leaping boatside before he landed this beauty at 49".   The sad part is that the one that shook the hook was almost identical in size, which would have made for one heck of a great 1 1/2 hour trip on the water.  Nonetheless it was fun for me to watch this well known bass fisherman tangle with one of my pet toothy critters, and to see the reaction it got.  Another awesome morning of Tonka muskies courtesy of this full moon period taking place right now.  The bite is definitely on, and I will be updating often, so keep checking to see all the monsters that keep coming in, and feel free to contact me if this awesome bite may just interest you a little bit.  Thanks .Com, Fishon!!
