"Are You Ready For Some Musky?"

"Are You Ready For Some Musky?"
Big Surprize !

Greg Coleman

Ham Lake Minnesota



What a big surprize! While Lindy rigging, with minnows, on Leech Lake, this 46" monster decided to have a snack and excite us all. All my brother, brother-in-law and wife could say was "O My God" repeatedly as I played the monster on 8lb test. The struggle lasted about 20 min as the monster ran around the boat, sat on the bottom, and crused the surface. With only a walleye net and our hands we brought the big guy on board. The net bent in half and I was slimed from bear huging the fish. After a picture we successfully released this beautiful fish and laughted for half and hour, telling and retelling the story of the day.
