Well, the picture is here! Rick Rosar caught a dandy 51" er over the weekend of the Annual Grape Stomp. What a great weekend! Who would think you could make a great weekend out of a visit to the annual Food and Wine Festival at Carlos Creek winery, by combining it with a little hardcore Musky chasing? Our guests boated a 38", 45" and 51" this weekend, all while making it a couples weekend! "Stompin Grapes and Throwin Baits" might need to be our theme this weekend every year!
Hi Steve and Michelle,
Here is the Muskie I caught last Saturday. I caught one other 45 inch fish as well. I caught the fish on a Musky Mayhem Cow Girl with a black skirt and orange blades. It was very foggy as you can tell. Just before we caught the fish, another boat approached my Ranger out of the fog. He asked us if we knew what direction he should go to find land. He was lost and wanted to get to the shoreline and follow it around to the landing. I asked if he had a compass and he said he did not, so we pointed him in the right direction and he disappeared into the fog. Just before I caught the fish we were going to try a different spot, but turned around to finish the drift. As soon as we got to the point, the big fish hit. It was a great battle. As soon as she struck, her head came out of the water and shook violently. At that point we could see how big she was just by the size of her head. Shortly there after my son Axel gently scooped her into the net. My fishing buddy “Iceman” kindly snapped a few photos, and we slipped her back into the lake to be caught again. After a few high fives and few more casts, we were off to the next spot.
We had a great time up there and even did a little Kayaking. We really enjoyed the clean, newly remodel cabin, and the large boat lift that could easily handle my Evinrude powered Ranger 620.
Thanks for a great time,
Axel, Lisa and Rick “Rocker” Rosar
