"Get Hooked on New York"

An Unlikely Method Details

Details:The day stated like any other with Muskie... at around 4:15 a.m. We took the long hike to the water at Wach. Reservoir and set up. We fished for about three or four hours before Tom finally landed a nice 2 and a half pound smallie on a crawdad. The lakers were biting and running but didn't seem to want to swallow the shiners so that no one could get a hook set into them. At around 1045 I noticed a big smallie slam into one of the dead shiners we had tossed out into the water. I figured that I couldn't catch any LESS fish that I had thus far, so I picked up a dead shiner sitting on the shore, took off my weights, and started casting and retrieving the little guy. On about the twentieth cast I watched my shiner hit the water about twenty feet from shore. I gave it a little jerk after it disappeared from view and SLAM! At first I thought maybe I had snagged up, then I see a big smallie leap from the water. She weighed in at 4 pounds even (my fourth fish this year that was within a pound of being a pin fish) and 21 inches long. Not bad for my first ever Wach Res fish and my first ever smallie! GREAT DAY. Thanks to Tom and Muskie for a great trip!

Great job! Always an adventure with Muskie!If Muskie has taught me anything it is to think outside the box when conventional methods don't work.
