The Muskies get on the prowl this time of the year. This year I've landed one and had a total of two follows on three outings. 3 years ago I landed a 36 incher on 4lb test and a jig while fishing for w's. I'll bet your sweetheart is ready of another trip to Island. Aint fishin fun.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
