Those are some monsters! I've been wanting to take a trip up north. Thanks for the great pictures and the report....i'm living vicariously through it at work right now.

This past week, I organized a Smallmouth Bass outing for our local Wild Rivers Chapter of Trout Unlimited. Temps are a bit high to be safely fishing trout at the moment, so an August bass outing was in order. We had quite the armada of river going vessels put together - My fiberglass drift boat, a handmade wooden drift boat, an aluminum jon, one canoe, a three person raft, and a kayak. With that many participating we broke up into 3 groups all doing different stretches of river in the Hayward area. Pete in my boat had a fishing experience of a lifetime. I pulled the boat behind a mid river island and dropped anchor for a little lunch break. Pete put his flyrod down and started tossing a small jig hook with a white plastic body. He hooked into something, and my first reaction was “BIG BASS!!!” b/c it wasn’t jumping. Then it’s tail came out of the water near the boat…. I quickly put the bass net away and unfolded the musky net... The musky didn’t have a hook in it, and didn’t let go of the 12” bass T-boned in it’s jaws until both fish were in the net. Smile  After everyone had a great day of fishing, we all met up at the North Star Homestead Farms for wood fired pizza and our monthly business meeting.

Not as many musky stories this Oct. as usual for me this season....Our first born is due this Tuesday.  No guide trips this month, 8-9+ hour drift boat trips on the river w/o cell service are out of the question...  But I have the best wife on the planet, she's been letting me fish...but w/ a short leash...  It's been short runs in my 17' Lund close to home and the hospital... I've sought out tasty fillets of walleye which happen to be the winter haunts of our SMB populations....IMG_20151020_174612569_HDR.thumb.jpg.eaf562c3a72c6b84_DSCN49981.thumb.jpg.5f983bons....  :)
