    I've still got an older nylon net and it isn't big enough to keep the fish in the water. Wondering what kind of net you muskie fishermen use? Do you use the rubber nets and what size? I've seen some large nets for sale at Crash's but those suckers are minimum of $150 and up. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Someone jacked his first identical net at the ramp after putting in alone and driving up to park.

    Cave run or ceasar’s creek in oh. Cant remember but he rarely fishes cave run alone so probably ceasars creek

    We are hitting brookville IN tomorrow. Biggest one i ever saw was at brookville.

    Bounced a bait off a fat 36 incher’s nose at ceasars creek last week, wouldnt eat. Might have just got caught a little earlier or maybe ate a duck or turtle (looked like me laying on the lazy boy post thanksgiving dinner) Musky are so damn frustrating.

    Drifter, RS and Frabill. At the same time please pick up a pair of Knipex mini bolt clutters and some long handled pliers to safely release those musky to be caught another day!!
