Crystal Lake

October 22, 2016

October 22, 2016

This was my first proper fishing trip on Crystal Lake.  I barely scratched the surface a couple years back when I launched the Pelican Bass Raider so it was nice to see the whole lake.  A beautiful fall day.  Sunny.  No wind. Not much structure but the lake is reputed to have a healthy bass population and is regularly stocked with Tiger Musky.  I wanted to warm up by catching a bass or two so I was  throwing a Wiggle Wart along the weed edge (milfoil) in about 10′ of water.  Lo and behold, no bass.  Rather, a 30″ plus musky completely inhaled the Wiggle Wart at boat side and bit me off.  Close again but no cigar.  Maybe next year.

What Else

What else should I do

Sixty degrees and sunny

One last fishing trip?
