Found out why Bob wears his glove!

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.

Musky bait.

Bob's minnow, note the blood & it's not from the fish!

Bob's thumb!

There is always a season!

Great photos, with big pickerel and musky it's the teeth that get all the attention, while the gill plate is very dangerous as well, they can be pretty tricky to handle.

Great pictures and good story! Gill plates are extremely underrated in the slicing category.
