Phil Smeal and myself made the annual pilgrimage to Wisconsin to fish with Brad Bohen. We caught tons of fish and had a hell of a trip. We ended up boating 8 musky, 2 pike, and a walleye in 3 days. Most of the musky were smaller around 30" but did get a couple bigger ones. One of the musky caught was my new personal best musky (46-47") that ate a figure 8 at the boat. I actually stole this fish from Phil because it followed his fly to the boat and then I snaked it.....sorry Phil. Actually no I'm not lol.
While out there we also competed in the Musky Flyfishing World Championships. We had high hopes going in but after the 2 day tournament Team Keystone Predator ended up taking 1st place in the team championship. We landed 6 fish but 3 were under 32". Our scoring fish were 32, 36, and 40 inches.
