We are now after our nemesis - I had something big hit a good sized lure last Friday, and the wife had something big break her line on Sunday in the same area of the lake. Got a decent look at what broke my wife's line - saw about 18 inches of the back of what appears to be a muskie or pickerel.
Problem is, this is the first time I've fished in the SE USA (been here 2 years). I am use to fly fishing for trout, steelhead, or salmon. Haven't done any bass or pike fishing since I left Minnesota back in 2007.
So it's game on.
