Muskie Man lands monster of a lifetime.

Lou posing with the 40 pound, 51" Muskie

I missed a phone call from Lou yesterday, he was at Cave Run Lake. Nearly frantic and out of breath he was lamenting the fact that I was not with him to document what would be a momentous day.

While trolling Zilpo Flats with a friend he observed his rod buckling down and assumed he was stuck on an impediment. As he reeled he noticed a few thrashes and determined he was in for the fight of his Muskie fishing life. By the time he left the water that night no less than 20 boats came up to them and asked to view photos of the, 40lb, 51", near state record game-fish.

For Lou the hunter that has seen a Black Bear, Elk, Chinook Salmon, and many Deer at the end of his sight/hook has hit another milestone in his outdoor life. The fish of 10,000 casts has brought him a trophy for the wall.
