In the past couple weeks when I’ve had time to get on the water I’ve been trying for my first ever musky. Not long after I began my musky research I heard about Pewaukee Lake in Waukesha County Wisconsin. After watching reports online of the consistent success people were having there, and because it’s not too far from where I live I decided it was a good place to try for my first musky. My brother and I tried there last Saturday and despite the awful weather we able to move a couple fish. The wind was blowin’ and it was a misty,cool day, but an hour into the morning and I hear my brother get excited. I look to see a 40+ inch shadow lurking beneath his fly. It startled him a bit and he was a little slow on the figure 8 and the fish disappeared. Later he had another follow from a fish at least the same size, and right before we ended the day I had one around 40 inches come to the boat and follow my figure 8 a couple times. Now I’m improving my flies and waiting for a chance to get back at it.
