My Story

Out fishing Crow Lake, which is right across the street from the famous Lake of the Woods in Ontario Canada. We were fishing a couple different bays and we got into one that had a lot of good structure, downed trees, and some deeper reeds. Crow Lake (also known as Kagaki Lake) is a deep lake that is all spring-fed so you can often see as far a 15-20 feet down. This leads to many muskie sightings and you can often see your follow ups. Through the 7 years I have been heading to Ontario I have often found success in Mepps spinners, so I had tried my favorite orange and black and had no luck. I decided to throw on a racoon or squirrel-colored and with my 2nd cast into the bay I threw right into the reeds. I was mad at myself because I didn't wanna deal with hooking a reed, cause often times they are tough to get out. I managed to avoid snagging any, and as I was watching my retrieval I caught the moving figure of the muskie and watched him hit and immediately set the hook and the fight was on. I was more than relieved when we got it into the boat due to the amount of structure. Again, Mepps landed me another nice fish. Thanks again Mepps!
