I was bass fishing Saturday morning, throwing a chatterbait. Fishing was slow. I casted to the bank and my lure shot off to the right. Set the hook and the fight was on! Within a couple of seconds, the fish jumps out of the water. My brother starts laughing, its a gar. As I got it closer to the boat it jumps again. I yelled, get the net!! It's a muskie. I fought the fish for about a minute, got the fish to the boat and my brother nets it. Made the mistake of putting the netted fish in the boat. SLIME city. Got the hook out. Then placed my hand in the gill area to hold the fish for a photo. The fish starts flopping around shaking, my hand slides up into the mouth area and I get a real whoopin put on my right hand. My hand and my brother got it too, bled for 2 hours. Measured the fish, 36". My second biggest muskie for me. Biggest came from Cave Run Lake, 40". Nice fish, guessing it weighed around 12-15lbs. Very healthy thick fish. I got the picture on my phone. Will post later. Released in bleeding state. Not sure if she made it or not. She was bleeding and me and my brother were bleeding. Only 3 bass caught, all dinks, and one hybrid. Fished later for crappie, zeroed out. Water temps were 76 in the morning and by evening, it got up to 83 degrees. Fishing was sloooow!
