Drifted around dumping grounds looking for perch and ended up with this cat! Lots of fun on light tackle. Didn't find a single perch or mark any fish, but the gobies were in full force. Got tired of killing gobies and started trolling for muskies. Had one line peel drag hard for a second and ended up losing a bucktail, my 80# leader got chomped on. When they inhale a lure what happens to it? Do they crap it out or does it sit inside and rust away or do they die? Boated 2 & lost 2. Biggest was 32". All on tails. American side.

Nice job.


As for that bucktail, if the fish doesn't choke & die on it they will need to crap it out. The bronze hook will rust but not the stainless steel shaft or the brass clevis/beads. Last year my dog ate some bucktails that I had planned on dying & making into lures & he was crapping hair for weeks.
