    I went to the New River in Va. today and hooked two muskie landing only one. The water temperature is 45 and the fish are biting. I hope you enjoy the picture and I hope to get more soon. I released the fish since I have one 32lb2oz at the taxidermist already and really expect to catch one in the forty pound class soon.

    Nice fish. How long was it? Were you trolling or casting?

    I was in chest waders and using big creek chubs. I went saturday and picked up a small Muskie on a smoke colored yum tube jig.Cant seem to find the bass but a friend caught a 4 1/2 pounder in shallow water on a minnow. McCoy is the spot. The fish was 43 inches long.

    Thats a nice looking musky you caught there, New River in Va is one of my favorite places to fish to, hopefully ill be able to make the long drive down there this year and do some fishing, good luck and I wish you many more big fish come your way.

    I am going to be taking a trip up to the New River in May or June for a smallmouth fishing trip. I didn't know there were many Muskie in the New river. I am just starting to fish for Muskie so that may be something I try while I'm there.

    Nice fish, keep catchin em, sounds like a good time. 40 lb or larger on the way, that would be quite a thrill.
