Fished this last sunday from 7-1 for muskie. Started by trolling trying to stay on the ledge of water from 15-23 ft of water. trolled crankbaits and didn't see anything until this fish. Landed this one in the big water. Water depth was 30 ft running a large fire tiger crankbait at about 3.5 MPH. It hit hard and stayed down deep, so at that depth thought for sure it was a muskie. Fought hard and had two little runs. This might be a personal best on Tapps. The picture doesn't do it justice my camera guy was having a career day. after that fish we went into some coves due to boat traffic and plopped docks with spinners, swimbaits, jakes, the kitchen sink, etc. Zero muskie to be seen. called it a day 1.
