|Details:||Wow! What a great turn out for TNFL. It's catching on!
We all met at the gate and chatted it up for a few while eveyone got their gear together. Started down the trail and as soon as we got to the shoreline, BAM, it was like the lights coming on and the roaches scattering. No wasting time here with the possible bad weather approaching.
It started off pretty slow. The water was a bit choppy, but we all started getting a few nibbles here and there. Muskie missed on a couple freight train hits.
1st fish of the night was Badlarry getting redemption, 1lb LMB. He followed it up a few minutes later with a 1lb Smallie. A short while later he landed another nice LMB in the 2lb range(pictured). Nice Job Badlarry, way to throw it down!
For myself, after getting only bites at the 1st couple of spots, I ended up moving to another spot and about 5 casts in, I hit on a roughly 20" pickerel. About 15 min later, I hit on a chunky 2+lb LMB(pictured)
MRDavis(AJ) ended the day with 6 fish and the winner of this weeks TNFL, a beautiful 4lb LMB(pictured).
Muskie, unfortunately, this was not your night, but you know how it goes. The batting cages did not treat you well.
Regardless of the results and the friendly competition for bragging rights, it was a great trip and is an example of what MAFF is all about. Less than a year ago, the 4 of us knew nothing of each other and now we fish together quite frequently, learning about new bodies of water & spots, techniques, methods, etc. Glad I could be part of this event and look forward to the next Muskie Adventure Tours gathering and meeting some new MAFF members in the future!
Great fun and a great time hidding in the tree's from the wind and rain. And as luck would have it, I didn't catch the 1 that would win the week or for the weekend
Great to meet up with more fellow MAFF members
