First musky! On Lake St. Clair fishing for smallies brought this thing up on a 6' 6'' medium spinning rod with 8lb test only took about 25 mins lol
Pretty Fish, Congrats. Lake looked pretty flat too.
Congrats !! Thanks for sharing !!!
I went up north this weekend and got to try some fly fishing on the Pierre Marquette river in Baldwin. Ive never got much of a chance to do any fly fishing so I was excited to try it out. I got out there in some waders and got the hang of it pretty quickly. I was working my way up the river and saw a nice trout leap out of the water by the bank. I made my way over there and he jumped again. After throwing my fly at him for a few minutes I felt him take it. My heart started racing! I was working on bringing him in and started to realize I wasn't exactly sure how to land him. After managing to keep out of a fallen tree and pulling him close enough, I finally netted him. My first trout! It was a blast and I know now Ill be spending a lot more time on the river.
Great stories, great fish.
Mike, my brother caught a Northern like that in Ontario on an ultra-light rig (4lb test), fishing for perch and smallmouth. Got the whole thing on video, over a 30minute fight. Man, they are special when you catch them that way.
Sdrenth, GREAT PIC, composition reminds me of the care you put into your fish mounts. I've never caught a nice one like that on the fly, but I remember my first on the fly vividly. I was sight fishing the upper Manistee with dry flies, and there he was on the end of my line. I was shocked. It was just a little fellow, so off he went. Then I caught nearly 50 more in the next couple hours. All little guys. Though I did manage to get a few big fish to rise. Thanks for bringing back that memory.

Nice,now theres some good eating !!!!
Nice bass David...did you deep fry any off those bass, thats my favorite way to do them!
Nice Fish Everyone.
David, Those are some toads. A couple like that in a tournament and I'd be $3000 bucks richer.
Most amazing fishing trip I have ever been on. Only 3 people have access to this lake . We caught 7 over 6lbs and I had 3 break my line. We even trolled with a rattle trap and crank bait with good success.
This is a nice one just caught,11 lbs 8 ozs and 30 inches long !!!! In Lake Champlain !!
Wow, that is a gorgeous atlantic. It also has the classic lines of an atlantic, not a distorted football like the lake Ontario atlantics.
I hope you mount that one up and took some nice closeups for reference while it was fresh!
Great catches everyone, went out a little bit ago and caught 14 brookies on the fly rod, caught a picture worthy one, and went to take a pics, no camera card!
My Dad and I went fishing this morning at a big private pond. These 2 were the best of the day and the only 2 we kept. His was his own personal record but mine was just short of my personal record. Great day though!
Nice bass 7-point
We just got back from a 2 week camping/fishing trip to the UP. Brook trout fishing was really good. Here are some of the big (for us) ones.
