At the end of September a friend at work invited me out to join him and his cousin in a fishing outing on Lake St. Clair. What a beautiful day it turned out to be. Phil and Steve set out the planner boards and loaded both sides of the boat with four rods. Once the boys had the boat organized we set off on our adventure. Ready, set, fish!
About a hour into the day and I had the honors of hooking the 1st fish. The pressure was on, I couldn't afford to loose the 1st fish . My 5 minutes struggle produced a nice muskie.
Next up was Phil and now the pressure was on him. A hour later and he was on to the next fish .
The day turned out to be a very successful one. We caught 11 fish in 6 hours. My biggest measured out 46 inches just edging Phil's personal best of 45 inches.
Here is a pretty neat device call a recovery trough where water is added at one end and you place the fish facing the flow allowing them to get fresh oxygenated water to help recover before we put the fish back in the lake.
Here is a small video of a couple fish Phil caught. Forgot to film any of my fish but always another time for that
