The wind was whipping the YakAttak flag violently back and forth as I zipped up my PFD. Dragging the kayak down to the waters edge I started to hear that little voice. You know the one that warns you when you're about to do something that years of evolution says you shouldn't. I pushed off from shore and lowered the propel pedal drive into the water. The waves were coming up over the deck so quickly that I had to pull my scupper plugs to keep the boat from filling with water. Working my way across the lake I thought, "This isn't really that bad." In fact the kayak was fine, the issue was with the pack a day smoker in the cockpit.

We all gathered at the shelter at 6pm to see who caught what, look at the pictures, and hand out some awards. Geoff won the outing with a beautiful 40 incher and Shane came in a close second with a nice 38 inch fish. The day ended with a lure raffle and musky sing along. This event is an absolute must if your in the Midwest and live to fish for muskies. Be sure you make plans to join us in 2016. I am positive there will be some big fish, big laughs, and a few larger than life fishing stories.
