This morning I hit the water with a couple of great muskie gentlemen.  Brian has been in my boat before, when he landed Ricky Bobby (one of the muskies I nicknamed), and Gary came in from Chicago in hopes of landing his first ever muskie.  It didn't take long to get on the board, when we boated this roughly 40 incher.  We had one other attack on that spot and we were on our way.  Spot number two for the day landed us fish number 2 and Gary's first ever muskie.  This man told me stories of the several days he has spent in Minnesota over the years trying to catch one of these snaggle tooths, and now he can proudly say he has landed the beast.  BrianGary%20003.jpgThe fish was exactly where it was suppose to be, and when Brian missed the mark with his cast, Gary quickly snatched it up and was doing battle within seconds.  We had several more close encounters as the morning progressed, and maybe should have had some willing fish, but that's how it goes, and the excitement truly lies in the attacks and sightings of these screaming, thrashing and lightning fast beasts!  Both of the fish we landed this morning were in the low 40's, but great fighters nonetheless and a ton of fun.  Thanks for the great time on the water boys!  Who wants to go Muskie Huntin????
