Clearfork Muskie Tournament winner!!!!

Discussion in 'Central Ohio Fishing Reports' started by bad-luck louie, Jun 10, 2007.

  1. Unbelievable! My first ever tournament! 62 fishermen, 33 Muskies, caught and I win my first time out. This Hog measured 45 1/2 inches and weighted an estimated 29 lbs. A special thanks to my new Hero, Neil O'brien, who took me to the tournament and skippered out boat. Now I know what some of you guys are thinking. "How can I call myself "Bad-Luck Louie" after this?" My answer to you is: luck had nothing to do with it, it was "PURE SKILL"!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????????????????

  2. CONGRATS on the fish and winning the tourney I was there today and wondered about all the trollers we didnt touch a fish. Best thing i can tell ya is walk away while you still can if its to late for that enjoy the hunt.
     

  3. Nice fish Louie, What were you using for a lure and what type rod and reel and line? Just curious to see if it is similiar to what I use?
     
  4. Trucked, I can't remember the name of the lure, but I promise I will find out for you. It was fire-tiger colored. It wasn't my lure,or even my pole, It was my partners' equipment. The reel was a bait cast with a line counter. We let out about 60 feet and the water was 17 to 20 feet deep.It had green power-pro line, 40 lbs test and a long wire leader.
