Well I got my first top water muskie yesterday on a top raider. My second cast out and this nice 37iner took it right in front of me about 15 feet from the boat. The best part of the day was Marinehabitats fish he hooked up. About 30 min later he gets a hit on a top raider but this one looks bigger from the start. It hit right after hitting the water and the fight was on. When he got her to the boat but she was staying down deep and refused to come up. She was just out of reach. I looked at my net which is 36"x38" and this muskie was an easy 50 fish because she was making it look small. After 8 more violent head shakes she threw the hook right next to the boat. We were bummed but that is the closest we have come to getting a 50 in the boat and at least Marinehabitats got a good fight out of her. We had to cut the trip short so exploring was cut short. I will be out again to try and get that 50 soon.
