Well I can now say that I caught a Muskie. It wasn’t huge and it wasn’t overly dramatic although it was acrobatic. I decided to do some casting off the dock in the morning before we went out to do some Walleye fishing. I was using a 1/2 ounce spinnerbait that I would normally use for Bass, thinking I might get a Northern or two. Unfortunately I was alone when I caught it but I did snap a couple pictures. Like I said earlier it was acrobatic, as it leaped out of the water shortly after I hooked it. It was still a long way out when it made this jump so I couldn’t tell what I had til I got it up close. When I realized it was a Muskie, I knew I wasn’t going to keep it, so all I could think of was getting pictures. I figured the best way to do that was to leave him in the water, so I grabbed my smart phone out of my pocket and tried to get the best pictures possible.
This was of the best picture I was able to get. So at least I can say I caught a Muskie, but still in search of the big one.
