Congrats. Getting that first one under your belt is such a rush. When I caught my first on Beers Lake, I remember thnking the thing just had an evil look in it's eyes. Kind of like it knew it was better than me and was ticked that I was holding it.

Yeah it was a blast, the nerves just hit me when it jumped out of the water, really shows you the power that the fish has.

Its about time you get your first musky. Did you learn this time when handling a musky and you didn't cut your hand up like when you were handeling mine? We still gotta remember when we go fishing to bring a camera. For those who are reading this other then shae we are cousins and last year when we went fishing shae got a nice walleye we wanted to release and no camera so we used his camera phone then acouple weeks later I got a musky on 8 lb test and we had to land it by hand because it wouldn't fit in the net. And after we got it in no one had a camera but a boat close to use did and they sent us pictures after exchanging my address with them and when we were all done we noticed shaes hand was fully covered with blood. FUN Times

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
