HUGE December Muskie!

HUGE December Muskie!

Chicago IL


I went back to Lake St Clair for the second time this year. I was there in July too. Heard about the big fat fall muskies and had to give it a go. For the first 3 hours I got no bites and froze my butt off, and the rain didn't help either. All of a sudden, this fish grabbed my Bull Dawg and I set the hook. I felt the weight of the fish and knew it was big. A minute later, she was in the bag! 51 inches and 40 lbs! Love muskie fishing!
