Launched Saturday morning at 7:45AM out of Crocker in a light rain. Marked several fish straight out from the launch in 10 FOW and decided to work the area. Boated a 3lb Smallie on the 4th cast using a pumpkin colored powergrub. Moved down to GPYC, as the weather cleared, and picked-up a couple perch. Made a run for the dumps, didn't get a bite but had two nice 40"+ muskies surface within 3 ft of the boat. On the way back in, the fish finder blacked-out crossing the shipping channel by buoys 9 & 10. Decided to drop some lines and try our luck. Hooked something large that felt like dead weight. At first I thought it was a snag as the pull on the line was steady. The odd thing was that it was pulling in the same direction as we were drifting. As I worked it up from the channel depths, the fish gave a final fight and spit out the harness. The fish stayed right below the boat and unfortunately never got a visual. No walleyes but we enjoyed the day, none the less!
