Caught this 48-inch muskie while fishing for smallmouth bass in the Yellow River just south of Webster, Wisconsin. Managed to put a 16 foot john boat in this flowage that leads into Yellow Lake. The river gets no wider than 60 feet and no deeper than 4 feet. Caught it on a 4-inch, green pumpkin crazy-leg crawdad plastic that was Texas rigged with only 12lb test and no leader! The 4-minute fight was captured on a GoPro as well.
