This was my ride. Nice, huh?!
“There ain’t nuthin’ better than a sparkly red Champion bass boat to blast through the water from one musky hunting ground to another.”
We were the first boat in the water at 6 a.m., and we met very few boats throughout the day.
It looked like these two were musky hunting.
This fine fellow with his family was definitely on the hunt for tiger musky.
We pulled into the Lake Mayfield Resort & Marina around noon for a quick break.
While we were there, Mark gave a quick lesson on cleaning trout to a young dad and his kids.
We threw everything in the tackle box at the muskies. We had some nice follows that got us pretty excited, but they just wouldn’t bite.
They have a big variety of Ducktail Lures to choose from at the resort store. I loved throwing this lure. They have great action and come in an endless variety of color, sparkle and shine. I only got hung up on a branch one time all day. They glide over branches and through weeds like nobody’s business.
Ducktail Lures is one of the sponsors of the Mayfield Open. The club doesn’t take on sponsors they don’t believe in.
This day on the water sure made ME a believer. I’m always worried about losing a lure (to me, losing an expensive lure always feels as bad as throwing my money away at the casino), but unless you wrap these things around a branch on your cast, they’ll hop, skip and plow right through just about anything — and look good doing it.
We fished from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. and saw a good number of fish. I came home sunburned, dead tired, hurtin’ and fishless. But, BOY OH BOY, I’m a happy angler.
I can’t wait until next weekend.
