Great day, weather was beautiful almost summer like. The fish were biting and good friends fishing. Mike and I watched the musky either attack a shiner or gill it was something else. Tryed everything to attract his attention but no dice. Caught a bunch of crappies on mini-mites with or without minnows. Even the gills were hitting the minnows. The WWD does have musky, can't believe it. Maybe with this weeks melt the water will rise and the bass return in numbers or who knows???

and its nice to hear that at least one musky made it through their first winter there :) the lake would be good for them with all the baitfish and cover but i still wasnt sure they would make it :D
This guy is alive, but not surviving in the lake anymore. He's below the main dam swimming in the stinky poop creek.
