Minnesota Muskie Opener Sunrise...

Travis Frank

This picture is long overdue for me to chat about.  I took this shot on the opening day of the Minnesota muskie fishing season.  Joining me was Young Ben and we both put our fishing sticks away for a bit and jumped for the camera.  I've watched the sun rise thousands of times from the lake, but rarely have the colors shown such beauty.  I'm pretty sure there were thousands of hard-core muskie nuts that saw the same thing that morning, and I wouldn't be surprised if they softened their hearts long enough to take a photo too.  I swear if there weren't trees in the background, you wouldn't have been able to tell where the sky ended and the water began.  Simply spectacular.  Thank you God for sharing this wonderful prize with us early rising muskie dudes!
