And when the musky came from under the boat and grabbed my fly on the figure eight I might have had an opportunity to fight it had I not been busy pooping my pants instead of setting the hook.
Ha. Sounds about right Mike. Dark or clear water they still come out of nowhere.

Over a few years we've scouted a few of PA's natural lakes. which I much prefer to the many dammed creek valleys we call lakes. I've put in the dad/husband points over the dog days of summer. Been to at least a half dozen fall festivals with the girls and wife the past month. big dad points. Tied, retied, tried new materials, poured over weather forecasts. Saw a big ugly front, and crap weather. 12 weights all day. Tactical apparel and give it hell.

Tied this for a buddy who came over Friday night to pick it up. He ended up reducing the capacity of my fish whistle and forgot to take it. So it swam Saturday.

It got hammered after a 30 second figure 8 sesh boat side.

5 minutes of downpour, 5 minutes of light, and repeat through the day.

Warmed up the insides and dried up a bit before it rained again.

Afternoon shift with less rain but more wind. Buddy stuck a 38" on the strip
