Rick, from Pro Tackle Outfitters in Fort Wayne met up with Randy to continue his quest for a musky over 40" on the fly. Rick is a die hard fly guy who has no problem slinging big flies for musky for hours upon hours. He has done just that and he was definitely due for his beast.
They were only about an hour into the day when it happened...
As Rick was working his fly back to the boat, the tug that we fisherman consider the drug took hold and the battle was on.
After some stellar give and take, Rick's first musky of the day slid into the giant net. It looked to be the one he has been slinging for....the over 40" musky on the fly.
After removing the fly from it's mouth, they put it on the measuring board and the anticipation was confirmed.
The look on his face says it all!!
Randy and Rick continued and a couple of hours later, Randy was hooked up with what felt to be another big musky. On seven different occasions, that fish came in to view near the boat before it actually able to be netted.
If that's not epic musky fishing, then I don't know what it!!
