This is my second 47-inch muskie of the trip I encountered on Rowan Lake upon venturing into a small bay. I made my first cast with a Banjo Minnow in the reeds, twitched it twice, and just like a torpedo the muskie came out of the water and exploded on the lure! Unbelievable! I set the hook and connected. The fish took off and went deep. For a minute the fish didn't seem to want to come to the surface. My legs were trembling and after about 3 minutes I got the fish to the boat and landed the fish briefly for a photo before I released it.
