The maiden voyage on Lake Glenview in the kayak. How cool is that? Well, it gets cooler.
Stopped by the park office, purchased my boating permit, and set out for a 6:30pm launch. Sunny with some rain clouds around; temps in the upper 60's, brisk west winds.
Spent a good hour and a half paddling around tossing a spinnerbait and a crankbait and nothing at all was happening. Lake Glenview is much deeper than I thought. It gets deep quick and levels out at about 16' with areas a few feet deeper than that.
Finally, a little after 8pm, I feel something hit and I set the hook... I had a feeling it was something with teeth and then I saw it... a muskie!! Are you kidding!?
The last I spoke with the resources manager a few years ago, she had mentioned they were considering it but no decision had been made at that time. Well I guess they did because I caught one that was 25". I was in absolute disbelief. I still am.
