With the summer we were having with really low water and warm temps toothy fishing got pretty tough. I was doing some other fishing thru the dry spell so I wasn't getting out alot but picked up a pike here and there. Got out yesterday and got a nice musky 36". Like Paco said we are going to Wisconsin this week and hope to blow up this thread with lots of pics.

Well we got a sh*t ton of pics and had even more good times. From tenting through a snow storm, saw a wolf and we made a pile of new friends.

TD and I had a pile of fallows that leads into boatside figure 8 action. Which was a very cool experience in itself. We got 2 eats a piece and both missed personel best fish. But we both landed a fish and picked up some tricks of the trade. Brad Bohen and Musky Country Outfitters are class acts and know thier musky and thier waters like no other. If ya wanna know how its done look them up!

Two thumbs up!
Looks like a great trip with some good action (by muskie standards). Those WI muskies seem to have a distinct coloration: rather dark over the top, black fins, with a noticeable greenish cast to the flanks. Nice.

I still can't get one this year. Spent about an hour yesterday evening beating a favorite, deep, tributary.... increasing clouds and approaching frontal system, things looked good. Had a hard strike and pull but, in the cloudy water I didn't see the fish (might have been a big bass).

The trip was awesome. The fishing was great even though we only picked up 2 fish. We probably had follows from at least 20 different fish. The water up there is AMAZING and everything just screams musky. 10 minutes into the 1st days float I had a follow from a 45 or so fish that turned on my figure 8 at the boat at least a dozen times then disappeared under the boat. As I made one more turn the fish come flying out from under the boat and inhaled my fly but I pulled it right out of it's mouth. I could not stop thinking about that fish the entire trip and am still upset about it but oh well thats musky fishing for ya. Brad Bohen, Chris Willen, and Lucky Porter up at Musky Country Outfitters are great guys and I would recommend anybody go up there. I know we will be going back for sure. Here are a few more pics from the trip.

I have the Echo Ion 10 wt. as my personal musky rod. I'm very happy with it. FWIW, I think that whoever gets that rod from TD55 will be getting more than their money's worth.

The Echo 10 is my stick for musky too. And I haven't found a fly line that is too heavy for it yet. It's a well built & a tank of a rod. And I have landed my biggest musky (a 42 in) to date on it. It's more than enuff rod.

I made it out musky fishing post tropical storm Sandy. The river was at flood stage so we knew it was gonna be a good night. Hooked it on a double 6/0-5/0 black and yellow hangtime.

That's an AWESOME looking fish Paco. Get a measurement? Looks heavy.

I had a musky trip planned this weekend. Water will probably be ripping in the original spot I was looking at, but you gave me some hope!
