Had to make a decision whether to go archery hunting or musky fishing on the full moon in October. Windy with a front moving in & the chance of rain pushed me away from the woods & onto the water (even though I almost got blown off). Turned out to be a good decision, as the change from stable weather had the fish on the prowl. After casting swimbaits and trolling resulted in nothing, at 9AM I switched tactics to a slower soft plastic jigging technique that my father-in-law got 1 the week before doing. Only difference was I upsized from the 7 inch twister he used to a 15" bait. On my first drift I boated fish number 1. A little later I snagged a big carp by accident (thought I had a brute). About an hour later I had a 4 ft class fish eat in the 8 boatside. What a rush, but after about 20 seconds she came unbuttoned on me. Dissapointed...absolutely, but I was pumped because I knew I had cracked the nut, at least for that morning. By 11 AM I knew I had to get off the water to head north for a bow hunt, but on my last drift I was rewarded with number 2 on the day. Actually hooked the fish for a second and lost it, but the follow up cast was plowed again & this time the hooks held. A very windy & great day on the water!
