Hit my river with my boat & Bob today, same result as usual though. Bob boats a musky (and a giant fallfish), & I got skunked. He got the fish on a big 6-7 inch gulp twister. I had two follows (one from a big girl) & a hit on a swibait that I couldn't ID as a musky or something else. Bob did have a bit of trouble getting his glory shot though, pretty good slice on his thumb from the gill plate complete with lots of blood. I guess I won't raz him about his musky mit anymore! Had to patch him up by cutting my fish towel for a bandaid & fastening it with 8lb mono. Put a glove on him to keep it in place.
Realized that I haven't boated a musky with Bob since my first ever......& that is getting old! Bob did tell me I make a great guide & net man for him though. Even though I handed him the net so he could net this one himself. I didn't want to do it for him. No just kidding, I was trying to film. All & all another great day on the water with Bob. I should get a free lesson on the North Branch soon I figure.
Bob's minnow, note the blood & it's not from the fish!
