Attack Of The Killer Tiger Musky

The video is a little long, but you get the point.

Weather: 7 degrees, warmed to 26. Partly cloudy to overcast. Light wind calm to SW at 3.
Barometric Pressure: 30.29in fell to 30.20in
Relative Humidity: 84% to 29%
Sunrise: 7:02am
Sunset: 5:26pm
Moon: Waxing. 2 days after the first Quarter. Underfoot 7:17am. Moonrise 12:17am.
Water Conditions: Frozen on top, 40 degrees on the bottom. 13 inches of ice including the white slushy stuff on top.

It was a slow day on the water. We had a very slow pick of panfish and only a handful of flags. One was a bass caught by Chris, and one had all the right signs of a musky, but the hook popped free shortly after I set it. It was right during a half hour period when 3 muskies were caught on a nearby lake, immediately following the moonrise.

Highlight of the day was undoubtedly having this tiger musky take a few shots at my camera. Watch the video until the end, you'll get another good look at it.

Starting to look forward to open water.
