Floated the same stretch with good friend Phil Smeal and had one hell of a day. Fished for about 8 hrs and all in about 1 hour we had an epic day. Off a big log pile Phil dropped a cast and came a big swirl and a minute later a 36" pike was landed. Next I was up and I managed about a 26" pike. I jumped back on the oars and about 10 cast later Phil's day got even better. We came up on a big deep hole full of wood and Phil started yanking on his line like he was stuck on a log..........this was no log. Soon there after a mid 40's plus fish rolled and the fight was on. Phil managed to get the fish to the boat and as I started to slip the net in the water the fly come unpinned. We were both so upset but it was still awesome to see all that. After that I had a follow from another musky that turned on my figure 8 a dozen times or so and disappeared back to the depths. This was the first time I floated this section and boy am I glad I did. I think I will go back after that big bitch again soon. I know where she lives now.
