Better line cutter than a net….first open water 2017

    My dad and I fished below Dubay Dam on the Wi River today.
    Cold weather had it very slow we only saw a handful of fish caught.

    My dad landed a 20ish pike then promptly hooked up with his first musky. I attempt to act as a net, however I may be mostly to blame for the fish swimming away with a lure still in its mouth and us having no pictures to show…… doah bawling I only had one bite all day with a 13in walleye on a floater rig.

    Sounds like a situation most of us have been in. Shrug it off, but at the same time try to learn from it. The Joys of Fishing.

    Keep us updated with the walleye run. I’m up in Merrill and it’s usually a week or so after the run down there.
