Having got over my sense of guilt for being gone three days in Milwaukee, the weather was simply too nice, and much too warm, to not get on the water.  It reasoned that the muskies would be active following a weeks worth of unseasonably warm weather.

With only an hour or so to spare I headed for Lake Calhoun.  Donning my waders I was soon waist deep in the water and chucking an assortment of musky baits.  The main challenges were: the low water; and, an abundance of milfoil. The milfoil presented the biggest problem.   The water was too cold for the fish to attack lures moving as fast as I needed to retrieve them.

There are days where you know you are going to catch a fish. Despite outward appearances (warm weather, hazy sunshine, and a favorable breeze) it just didn’t feel right.  Oh well, maybe next time.
