The Old Doc' Loses His Virginity....

Holy Molly!!!  The Doc lost his virginity this morning, and both Dean and myself were there to watch it.  Hahahaha...Muskie virginity that is.  He decided that he didn't want to mess around with any of those 40 inchers, and jumped straight up to 50 inches.  That's right, after years of trying for these toothy buggers, he left his cheesehead state of Wisconsin and landed a Minnesota Monster!  Our chances came and went this morning, (most of them on Doc's line) and Dean and I were talking about how they tend to feed off and on throughout the day.  Just as we were talking about the little flurry's of activity, Dean was almost knuckle deep in the water figure 8'ing a fish.  2 casts later, this 50 incher woke Doc up from his daydream and the battle was on.  This gorgeous fish almost gave me a heart attack when his line went under the trolling motor, but he held on and I slipped the net under him.  The rest is history, and Doc can no longer say that he's a virgin at muskie fishing.  Tomorrow I join the Cheeseheads for one more party on the lake as we try to take pictures of a few of the ones that we couldn't hook this morning.  The streak is up to 6 days.  Way to keep it going boys.....Now the pressure is back on for day number 7.  ( Hey Doc...Not too many Cocktails....still one day to go)!  See ya in da mornin!
