Hi everyone, I am new to this forum, although I have been reading your posts for a while, I finally decided to join. Anyways, I just started my summer job with the Corp of Engineers at CC this Monday and was down at the fising area just below the dam on Tuesday afternoon. There were two older gentleman sitting there fishing for crappie when one guy hooked into something huge!! After 1/2 an hour of fighting he had a 40+" muskie into the bank and i was just reaching down to land it for him (as I had gloves on and he was a little worried about a large toothy fish he had never caught before) when his line snapped. Here is the lesson, to all of you who think you need a boat to catch big fish, this gentleman had a 1 inch minnow set up for crappie from the banks and hooked a monster.
