So I have been tinkering with many features on many different websites lately, and I have learned a few things.  This video isn't new by any means, but it is very special to me, and I have wanted to share it for some time now.  The great man Jack Popowich made this DVD for me last summer and it is a great battle of his buddy Bob and the mighty Minnetonka Muskie.  The work he put into it is quite spectacular, and as you watch, you will realize that this fish should not have come into the boat.  This is not a typical muskie battle, and I recall many times throughout this fight as I tried to coach Bob through it, that the line was rarely tight.  let's just say that this muskie should not have come into the boat...However, I'm glad it did.  Enjoy!

Until next time...Keep on Livin The Dream!
