This is the week!

4th Annual Musky Ball...started as a DrakeBake:)

Yes we are having a two day musky fly fishing contest(for charitable causes)...but mainly this is about fishy fellowship and celebrating a World Champion fish - The Mighty Musky and the lifestyle required to go about fooling these bastard fish into taking our humble offerings.

Hope to see all the familiar faces up here once again...and some new ones too!

Fishing has been Grand!

So I thought today was gonna be the day...that we stopped just getting looks and started getting eats.
Franzen made the trek over the holler, although the sun was quite warm upon his arrival, and I was hoping for an earlier start with the upper 30 degree morning we saw.
I'll cut to the chase and spare the details. We sight cast to 8 fish today all in the upper 30" to mid 40" class, mostly on sand flats, I had one good follow thought was gonna eat (then there was a noise distraction on the bow of the boat, she left). I managed 2 more follows from the timber, one really hot fish that I put into the "8" until she lost interest and sulked on the bottom, I told Chris to show her something different, get his fly down there and she came on it hot, he sped the fly up and she charged hard and flared....then left.
We were working down another flat (and had been calling out carp and suckers all day to each other, validation thing), and he calls out a carp..."No! Shit! Shit! It's the biggest fucking smallmouth I've ever seen!!!" we both hauked big flies at it and it showed some interest, so I spin the boat around, make a quick fly change, make a cast, tease it a bit and it pounces like a kitten on a ball of yarn. The fish was a solid 5#r (you know, Bob White stylin'). I just about have her to the boat when she does the head shake/ jump combo and comes unbuttoned...damn. But it was cool.
So that was pretty much our day. We saw a pair of bald eagles and some otters.

Chidester, Bufud, and Socks hit a different river today w/ a better outcome....looking forward to the TR (damn kids were texting more than fishing).

Yeah, TX, I was flying back from Denver and every time I looked at my phone I'd have ten new messages from both boats. Crazy action everywhere it sounds. Glad the local fish are starting to get into a fall pattern.

Sweet fish, Knox! Glad to see Preston get in on the action! Where's he living now? Is he in Raleigh by my memory or where?

[report]Just got back from AA's hood. I shoulda timed my vacation for this week for the festivities.

Did a repeat of last year with my buddy. Same cabin, same rivers, same bars.

Ever since I was a child I've had a thing for muskies. My grandfather would tell me stories of fishing the Wisconsin flowages back in the 50's thru the 70's. He had a mount on the wall of his workshop and as a kid it both terrified me and amazed me. I talked to him yesterday afternoon, he wanted to know how my trip was. He can't get out to fish anymore, but I could hear him light up as I described the trip. That excitement about fishing I remembered up until a few years ago was back in the timbre of his voice.

Kind of fitting for my tattoo artist to want to tattoo a musky on my arm right after a successful trip on the same waters my gramps floated 50 years ago.

If it wasn't for my grandfather introducing me to fishing who knows what I'd be doing with my life. I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be as awesome as it is now.[/report]
I usually drop em in the grass and then fish out another cast or two while I wait for them to get tired enough to hold still - that way you can actually tell how long they are against the rod. - JT
