Terry wanted us to know how he relaxes on his "Off" days from shooting...

(And he wonders why his back hurts..LOL)

Nice fish Terry !!! I thought the folks on here would like to see this baby...

Looked like he was so heavy he was sinking the back of the boat. (The fish, that is)

Thanks for sharing with us, Dave in SC

We southern boys and girls may not know just what kind of fish that it. I don't know my pickerel from my musky. Whatever it's a nice fish Terry.

Terry and his buddy got 12 Muskies that day...I fished the St. Lawrence and Chatauqua lake and never even caught one of them...

Terry had a real good day with his buddy..

The guy I was with lets that water in the back of his boat so the Muskies stay healthy until we let them go.

That fish was 52 inches long, we never weighed him we just put him back in to fight another day.

If I catch a few more like that I might quit trapshooting and start fishing a lot more.

It really was a fun day, he jumped several times. He went across about 15 feet behind the boat a couple times with just his head out of the water, mouth open trying to shake the plug. When they have their mouth wide open they are an awesome sight, lots of teeth. They are strong, they fight good and are a really exciting fish to catch.

We got a big Gar pike that day too and one Pike.

The Muskie hit a big wooden body bait that was Perch colored, we were in ten feet of water using planer boards.

Terry, that was a very fine Muskie. We have a friend that goes to Canada every year especially for Muskie's...he would have been thrilled with that one...that's for sure.

That muskie is a keeper if I ever saw one! About 45 years ago I caught a keeper in Canada. Some of the men at that fishing camp had been after keepers for almost 20 years and had never caught one. They were upset that a rookie on his first day caught a keeper. Mine was only 38 inches and not nearly so healthy looking as this 52. Nice fish, I can remember how that fish fought to get off that line and how excited my Dad was when I had him hooked I though Dad would jump out of the boat. I can only imagine how that big muskie fought to get off that hook. Dan

This may surprise a lot of guys but Lake St. Clair, 5 miles North of Detroit is a really a great Muskie lake that is only about 30 miles wide. It is a very shallow lake and that makes the fishing a lot easier than it is in deep lakes.

You can find several Muskie charter boats working out of there. The odds of catching a big Muskie there or lots of them is better there than it is way up North.

Look up Rampadge Charters on a search engine or call Terry at 519 354-1901 tell him I that I recommended them.

He is not the guy I was fishing with but they are good friends. He caught 12 for 15 that same day and was only about a 1/2 mile away from us all day.
