“The Catch” of the week – 10/6/21

This weeks catch comes to us from JW Angling.  He caught his personal best hybrid Musky – but we will let him tell you all about in his own words! 

After going 4/8 on musky we decided we would troll to the boat launch and this tiger destroyed a mini black and orange bucktail and went crazy around the boat before going in the net. I wish I had time to appreciate the fish but my main concern was getting it back in the water so we got 4 brief pictures. A new personal best I never thought I’d have the honor to hold. It’s a habit to protect the fish but unfortunately I’ve never measured or weighed any fish I’ve ever caught in the past 8 years or so. The musky is from a small lake up in the laurentians in Quebec!

Congrats JW – you have an email coming your way!  If anyone else would like to submit their own “The Catch” please submit by emailing a story and pictures to thecatch@muskyhunter.com!  Good luck out on the water!
