home made baits vs store bought?
Thank you! I know those fish have been eating good and also pre-spawn. Was interesting to find out from one of their biologists that the 40.50 & 42.50 were fin clipped on the left pectoral fin on both. Found out they were stocked in 2011/12 making them only 6-7 years old!!
Don't forget those release tools when fishing from shore. I made that mistake once when I took my son for a real quick....."let's take a few casts from shore." I only had a small pair of pliers, no net, no hookouts, and no wire cutter. I ended up catching a 45", approx 25lber that I had to hand land off the broken rocky shoreline, then unhook it with the small needle nose. I never made that mistake again.
Those were a custom color I did for a friend down here. I think I’m going to make myself this same color have had a few people order them.
Did raise 2 fish from shore tonight after we got done eating dinner. That got my musky fever going!!
