Went to Detroit this weekend to try to get rid of the skunk that's been on me this year. Casted the Detroit River with BITE-ME and a few other friends. Saturday, I caught a perch on a Buchertail 700 and BITE-ME managed a couple nice skis....one on a figure 8 in CLEAR water. Definitely one of the hilights of the trip seeing that. Sunday morning, I finally hook up on a jerk bait. Fight the fish for a minute or two and just as I was sliding him to the net, the lure fell out of his mouth and he calmly swam away. Later Sunday afternoon, BITE-ME had the hot hand again as he lost one on a really weird break off and had a boatside taker that pushed 46 inches or so. This beauty managed to shake the lure as well. Storms moved in and time was running out for me. I REALLY did not want to leave a world class musky fisherie with a good ol :S We were in a conversation with two other boats and I kept casting the jerk bait hoping to get lucky at the last minute and that's exactly what happened. This fish was 39 or 40 (BITE-ME said both #'s and i forget which is right) caught in about 8' of water.
