|a pretty, but skinny fish!|
|An average northwoods smallie!|
We kept fishing and caught quite a few more smallies and my dad even caught a fat little muskie, about 27inches, and we caught 5 walleye, including my personal best on a fly rod 22.5"

We headed back to out cabin and had some dinner, then went back to the river for some evening fishing. We caught more smallies, a couple more walleyes. This time we brought the net, just in case, and I'm glad we did, as just like the night before, i hooked into another muskie. This one was BIG, and again on the 6wt. with a 3-4inch leech pattern that i often use for trout!
After a fierce battle we got him in the net, making it officially the first muskie i've landed on a fly! It was also one of the biggest muskies i had ever caught! Right about 48 inches (possibly even larger, we weren't that worried about exact measurements at the time) It was a healthy 48 too! All on a 6 wt rod too!
|Finally, got one on the fly!|
|A BIG one on the fly!|

Not a bad weekend!!
