We were only fishing for about an hour when Dave (my wrestling coach) had his first follow but missed. Minutes later he hauled in a 35 incher, I did the honors of netting him and boy did that get my blood pumping. I was ready to get me one! 35 inches was no big deal to them but to me it would be a dream. Fished hard and around 11 o'clock I was reeling in a bucktail and had a follow by a huge fish, but it turned away from my figure 8. Switched to a black Marv's spinner bait with orange blades. At 11:48 I was burning it in from deep to shallow and a fish just smashed it 5 feet from the boat and just beneath the surface, and I saw the whole thing. I watched it come out of a dark hole in the weeds that I had just said were so nice. Minutes later Musk netted my very first muskie that was around 35 inches. It was an awesome fish, a male that was really beat up from spawning. I was being made fun of all day for being the weed master, dragging in weeds pretty often; but they told me to jerk and reel no matter what. At 12:06 I had what I thought was another clump of weeds but I did what they told me to do and jerked, the weeds began to jerk back and I had my second muskie on. After a good fight we netted one that was a few inches smaller than the first but was nice and healthy and had great color. Tried a few other lures the rest of the day and put on a Perch imitation side to side jerk bait. I was getting tired and was in the middle of sitting down as I pulled my lure out of the water a muskie literally jumped out of the water after my lure. Never again will I cast without doing a figure 8 or something, I will always assume there is a fish following. Well I hope you guys enjoyed the post and I now know why you all are so nuts! I'm only 17 years old so I know where all of my money will be going when I get it, and I will learn from Musk and Dave and get an old lady that doesn't mind me fishing non-stop. Or maybe I won't get one at all! If you guys want any more details about the day or the lake I'm sure Musk will get on here and elaborate. Pics coming soon! I'm HOOKED!!! Tight lines to all!
