I think my next close show is Harley fest in Hell MI??

Yeah man that's what its all about...being on the water..well and catching muskie too lol. Didn't take you long to get into one so good deal. It will get a little more tough going into summer but hey it makes for a great challenge. Some days will have you scratching your head and in a funk but knowing that the next cast could be your fish of a lifetime keeps you casting. They say muskie is the fish of a thousand casts. Well for hard cores that's about right. We did the math this recent next bite filming and averaged 100 casts per hour throwing bucktails and fast moving baits. In a 10 hour day that's 1000 casts. If you can average a fish or 2 a day then your doing good. So keep your eye on the prize bro next for you is a 4 footer

i dont know why he would say we caught those on tiger tubes. we caught those fish on bass tackle, 4 inch tubes. read this post and you'll hear the whole story........the kid on the right caught the fish

the other day, i was out in front of selfridge with my buddy shane and mike, i hook my friend shane up with one of my spinning rods with a tube and 8 pound test so he can go for some smallies and have some fun cause hes fairly new to the sport and he ends up catching the fish of 10,000 casts with in about 10 minites of the trip, he sets the hook yells out fish on and i look at the rod and its just bent over like crazy, i thought it was a huge smallmouth untill i heard the drag scream for about 10 seconds straigt, i quickly loosened his drag and the fight was on, the muskie got near the boat and he was like a kid in a candy store then it went for a second run, jumping out of the water i thought for sure this fish was a long gone. not five minites later its in the boat it ends up being like a 41 inch muskie, about 20lbs. because of the bass tackle this fish was nearly dead when it got to the boat because of the long fight. we unhooked it took a snap shot and released it succsessfully, took quite a while though, then he goes on to catch another 40 incher and then a 5lb smallmouth, all while im fishing next to him giving it my all with an ambasseduer reel and 65lb braid with an 80lb mono leader and cant get one. had 2 follows from 40 inchers but couldn't get them to bite. never gave up though. i was glad to see him catch some nice fish, ill get the pictures later
