Went up to black lake for 4days with 5 school buddies(one has a cottage in edwardsville).Weather was awesome as it never is when we go anywhere so that was a bonus.Usually it`s a cold front rolling in whenever we go-we do this everyyear.Anyways....fishing was great but all small pike and  nailed the crappies-had us a nice shorelunch.I started out casting a prizm 5" shallow raider and a new 5"smuttly dog glider.I kept these on for two days.Outside one of the coves that we were targeting i had a blowup on the smuttly that was a big fish(figured i found a bid northern).Did`nt break the water but the fish spun and created a large boil and put a few teeth marks in my bait,caught a small pkie on the raider and a few others on a bomber lond A firetiger as the other two in my boat.Had another good size fish follow but not like that one.Came back to that spot sunday and caught a few small pike but that was it.Monday morning i went back alone...they needed their rest after a long day and a few cocktails the day before.Started out with the smuttly in the same area but a little farther out(50yds or so)and started drifting....within a few minutes i found out what i had missed on sunday...as i set the hook or as i tried to set the hook  the fish did`nt move but my drag did as i was geared for pike and did`nt have my drag locked as i might while musky fish`n.The back of the fish and tail came outta the water and it was clearly a really nice muskie.I never got the hooks into it good and soon lost it.From now on even while pike fishing i`m gonna lock it down.I put my rod down ,moved into the cove and proceded to slam the crappies .lol  for the rest of day and tuesday a fished crappies.That was a very cool surprise to an awesome 4days on black lake.

I`m looking forward to boating some tigers now!Oh yeah....my new cu301e curado is great.
