The 2018 update string hits three consecutive weeks with the addition of our first species other than a largemouth bass. And this one’s a good one, with some teeth.
Length: 40” class
Angler: John Kirkemo
Date: April 26
Location: Lake Storey
Lure: Wacky worm
Angler Comments: I was about 10 yards off the bank in about 8 feet water. The surface temperature of the water was 60 degrees. I was fishing for bass with a 6 ½ foot medium action spinning rod with braided line tipped with a 6 lbs. test monofilament leader. The picture shows the fish lying across the boat floor. The floor at that point is 44 inches wide. This is my first ever muskie. It was returned to the lake.
Many thanks to John for sharing as the first full year of Top 5 submissions here at the not so new digs has been rather sparse. And speaking of “not so new”, tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of striking out on my own with a blog. Hard to tell whether I am actually striking out though as I don’t do any sort of visitor tracking. Still just a fun venture at this point and the fun continues with a few days of celebration to kick off the new month and year number two. Talk to you later. Troy
