    The story starts out that I was at a Memorial Day party last weekend when a friend of asked me if I would like to do some reserch for him. Of course I ask What kind of reserch? He said he works for a company ( which I can't tell you who, sorry) that owns a 45acre lake with about ten 4acre pond all inter connecting. The company wants to know about the fish population and the size of the fish. I told him I would be there on Sat. with three buddys and our float tubes. He wanted mesuerments and pics. We got there at about 8am this morning and started fishing some of the smaller 4acre ponds. It started out slow but heated up pretty quick. I turned to cast behind us with a black buzz bait and a very large and in charge bass killed it. Within seconds my 8lb test snapped. That was the begining of a legendary day. We get to a sand bar that runs about 50yards across the pond with a tree laying down on it. I throw my Black and Blue 1/4oz jig and my pole is doubled over. I yelling BIG FISH BIG FISH and it was. The length of her was 22 1/2inchs and went about 6lbs. My buddys next cast in the same spot produced a real nice 19 1/2incher and my next cast in the same place produces a 18incher. By now we just float and laugh because we never have seen three fish with there size caught that quickly and in the same spot. Within the next couple hours we catch some more 13, 14 ,15inchers and go get something to eat. We come back and put in our tubes in the big 45acre lake. We catch one fish in about one hour and decide to paddle to the other side of the lake to fish some islands. This is where it starts really getting good. The clouds move in the bite erupes. We start catching 18, 19inchers pretty regular and had a couple more 20+inchers. All in All we caught 10fish that would of went 5+pounds and alot of 2 to 4 pounders. Here the icing on the cake. A big storm is moving in and I cast my 5inch purple with emerald senko and BAMMMMMMMMM. I calling to the guys to get over here because I have a 8 or 9 pound bass on my line. This fish would not come off the bottem. He ran me around in circles for about 5mins. I finally got him up and it was not a bass. It was the biggest Muskie I have ever seen that close. I was pretty close to remember I'm in a Float Tube. I call to my buddy Jeff and tell him it's a Muskie and he starts coming to help a friend out. I paddle to the shore and stand up and Jeff gets ahold of him. He taped out at about 35inchs. Did not get to weigh him because it started pouring. It was a wonderful day of Bass fishing and the surprize fish. I'll never forget it. Here are a couple of pic of Jeff and Steve. I'll be getting more pics tommorrow of the bigger Bass and the Muskie.

  3. I was there, it was really an unbelievable, kind of surreal day. I saw so many big fish, I started to lose perspective. After the muskie, the wind started blowing harder than I can ever remember in a float tube and it started just pouring, we were all exhausted, I just started clapping, it was an awesome day day, one that I will never forget.

    It was about 45mins from where I live. We also had a combined of about 5 or 6 line breaks on 8lb line. Big fish:B
