Another solid spring muskie joins the list and keeps the update streak alive at five consecutive weeks with some fish. And a “Trip Tune” to boot, always a welcome addition.
Angler: John Kirkemo
Date: May 10
Location: Lake Storey
Lure: Rapala deep diving crankbait
Water temperature: 68 – 70 degrees, weed beds building fast.
Structure: Mid-lake trolling over 23’ of water
Angler Comments: This time I was more or less fishing for muskie although I was still not using the heaviest gear in the boat. I was thinking walleye, if I was thinking at all!!! I was trolling as I changed positions for more bass fishing. I used a 6’6” bait casting rod with an Ambassadeur 6500-C3 reel loaded with 8 to 10 lbs. mono. Lame excuses for not doing better: Bright sun, cloudless sky and, the usual, hide-bound angler. Trip Tune during drive home, “Livin’ on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi.
Thanks, John and keep ‘em coming. And for those who stop by for the Monday update, thank you for tuning in. Now, if you’ve got Bon Jovi running through your head, don’t blame me. I just report it like I receive it.
More fishing stuff as the week progresses as although I haven’t been able to get on the water I’ve got plenty of things backlogged. Tough thing is, May is a real bear in terms of end of year school activities combined with the regular slate of commitments so blogging resides a ways down the list. Talk to you later. Troy
