First feb musky(s)
First I have to thank jack and fishdoc for giving me tips as I got into the obsession. & also the guy who sold me a crankbait at the butler fishing show. You can see it hangin out of the little fishes mouth so if anyone knows him, let me know his info ill send him a thanks too and also order about 5 more lures. I went hard and got lucky with a couple of fish on wed. I also lost two others at the bank. 29 & 36 I know they arent giants but as hard as I try they mean the world to me. I must be finally doing something right. I should also note that I was extremely careful not to get the gills with my fish hook. The second fish was bleeding from the lure. I have no intentions of ever harming a musky and am very careful to keep them alive and well. I got them both back in the water very quickly. Next stop hopefully 40" haha

Congrats on 2 nice fish. The lure, from what I can see is either a neuman or a wiley. It should be signed or have the makers mark on the bait. If you figure out who it is I may have their contact info. One last thing, I would avoid using that gaff hook as there is too great a risk for injuring the fish. Boga's, if used right, would be a much better choice.

Nice job, looks like a Wiley or reproduction wiley to me. I agree on getting away from the gaff. You a boga or gloves if you are nervous. Good job

Re: First feb musky(s)
It is definitely a Newman. Thanks for putting the names up there because before i couldnt make out exactly what the signature said. If you could send me his contact id be grateful, that little crank fires right off of logs and rocks like a dream i think due to its large square bill. Also I bought a large rapala grip lock today so next time ill be more prepared. thanks for the help again guys
