We didnt get on the water until after 5pm, so we had kind of a late start, but we had a couple follows and finally caught a few small pike around sunset. It was getting dark so I decided we should troll back to the landing. Within a couple minutes we caught a 20" walleye, so we turned around and at the same spot caught a 43" Musky. Once pictures were taken and fish was released we turned around and at the same spot again we caught a 47". For my two friends these were both their very first muskies, so I was pretty excited. On the next pass I hooked into this 50" and it really ripped out some line, but finally got it into the boat, took a few pictures and it rocketed off as fast as when it took my lure. Always great to see these big fish go back healthy!
