Really not much to tell Dennis. Typical muskie story. I was out on one of my fishing buddy's boat, working a weed line in 15 ft of water. We were casting 9" jointed crankbaits and big inline spinners. About half hour into the trip, she whacked it on the figure 8 at boat side. When they hit on the figure 8 its usually just a lot of splashing and there is a mexican stand off till you get them in the net. All the big jumps and long runs that you hear about usually happen when trolling. My buddy got one and lost a good one when the snap on the wire leader gave. I have to say muskie fishing is tough. A lot of casting big heavy lures but when a momma like this bites its all worth it.

Brian, Can you please give us more about the tackle you used, the fight, any jumps, who was with you for the photo, and your overall reaction? Please! We sometimes need to live vicariously through our fellow fishermen.
