Not So Far from Home – French River Musky Fishing

I must say that Alicia Moir-Raytrowsky and I have really enjoyed our time at ‪#‎BearsDenLodge‬ on the French River. Today I managed to catch my first musky! After searching all over for one… I finally caught one right off the dock. He came out from under the dock and t boned my swim bait. He was probably the fish that took Alicia’s little pike she caught on our first night here. We weren’t able to land him then because he wasn’t really hooked and we didn’t have a big enough net at the time to grab him. A couple days later and he was ready for another “meal”!  – T.J.
