I just came back from Sioux lookout (located approximately 18 hours north of Toronto). I've got some other pics to load and I'll do that later from my time up there.



This past Monday, I had the pleasure of accompanying the owner of the lodge where I was staying and one of the guides of the lodge for some musky fishing on Lac Seul. We headed out around 2:30.



We tried a few spots and then came to another. I was throwing a topwater and saw this giant following it in. I said "I've got a follow" and the guide said "speed it up". I did and she followed it right to the boat. As soon as I started my figure 8 ......BANG ...SHE NAILED IT. My rod bent in half almost instantly and Greg (our guide) had the fish in the net. I let out a huge YAAAAAA and I had my biggest fish of my life.



Here she is....52 inches and a 24 inch girth !!!!!!











Back you go Big Girl...thanks for one of the greatest moments of my fishing life.







We fished for a while after that and saw a total of 6 muskies that day. I lost another one but I did take some comfort in that she wasn't as big as the girl I landed.



I went out with another guy from the lodge last night and we saw another 7 muskies. I can't describe how good the fishing is here. I certainly enjoyed my time here.



Jim
