I've got a ton of respect for any muskie head that fishes for these beasts year round. I absolutely love them but most days they drive me mad! Which is why I only devote 4 or 5 days each season fishing for them, usually unsuccessfully. Monday was NOT one of those day. I had the afternoon off so me and my buddy decided to roll the dice on a musky lake. They weather seemed perfect, the water level and clarity looked great, and the temp was right. We ended the day with two fish, the first was 38" and the second was a fat 41". Absolutely epic afternoon of fishing! I just hope it doesn't take another 10,000 casts to connect again. Cheers!
