My favorite season is Fall or what I like to all "Musky Season." You can catch Musky in any season in rivers and lakes, but there is nothing like a beautiful fall Musky that has been feeding in preparation for winter. They are known as the fish of 10,0000 casts with 700 teeth, 2 of them actual canines. What's not to like?
A musky is built like a submarine, but approaches like a torpedo. The bulk of my fishing is done solo and whether it is wade or drift boat fishing, both are equally thrilling. The upside to wade fishing is that you get to feel the fish brush up against you as you try to remove the fly from its carnivorous mouth. It is a humbling experience being next to one of these monsters. Since most people use a drift boat to chase the 50 inch dream, I will focus on those experiences.
