I had the pleasure of sharing a first musky experience with three fine Philadelphians this past week? They have come to Canada to fish for a long long time and know their way around Ontario pretty well. After playing with pike, bass, trout, and walleyes for many years it was finally time to step into the big leagues. It was musky time.
Doug, aka Patch, scored his first ORMF patch of the trip on our second spot of the morning when he recorded the “never before been seen” big fat catfish on a musky glide bait. Put up a surprisingly good fight too! This gave Patch bragging rights and he used them regularly until late in the day when the Gary scored the biggest fish of his life. What a beauty with perfect colours and fins. Big nets save fins and tails and that’s how you get fish that look like this in pictures. Treat your muskies right!
Mike worked up his biggest esox on this trip as well late in the trip and we ended up with four in two days, two personal best esox, and a catfish on a musky lure for Doug. The good, the better, and the ugly perhaps….. Sorry Doug, catfish don’t count.
After catching his nice fish Gary got a good look at a very big fish that rolled over his bait just off the side of the boat. You catch big fish by hunting big fish and we visited the spot again several times without success. If you read the next couple of posts you can find out what happens. Here’s a hint; in the next story there is a really big fish and in the one after that there is a monster.
