I like your style and appreciate the posts. Looks like you found a good camping area. Can't catch fish without taking the initiative. I think everyone, including your 4 legged friends, had a good time. And if you go muskie fishing in unknown territory. no one really expects you to catch one anyway.I just got home. We saw no fish of any kind. Today as we were packing up we noticed how nice the river and weather was. No wind and it dropped about 1 ft over night to normal level. I can't wait to buy a bigger rod and try it again.
