"I fished 5am until 5pm so I must have just missed you. 12 hours and zip. Seen a few fish shallow again but let them be. Might be good in a couple weeks when they finish spawning."

86 ",165lbs aw wait that was my hammerhead. never over 50", few 50's, not that many 49"s tons of 45"to 48"s after between 1000 and 1100 muskies caught i'm long over due. hard to get over 48 in the river! had my chance in the early90's  . just released a 25 pounder drifted in shallow, depth finder went nuts (14 beeps,unheard of). fish never moved from mid july till nov 4th made countless passes over him , he was always there. this young dude i was taking with me  finally got his own boat and invited this idiot, know-it-all bass fisherman, first musky, figures he gets the fish to hit. get a call at 2 in the morning,  40lbs on his bathroom scale, brought the fish to the shop, called hank, he called all the old guys. 38lbs 14oz, biggest  legit  on hank was later confiscated by the DEC, the idiot didn't have his licence. figures, just my luck, "loser"!
