On May 4th, 2011 I will be heading off on an exciting 1-year trek across Central & South America. I will be carrying two fishing rods in my backpack - one spin casting & one fly rod. Join my adventure as I search for each country's best fishing spots, learn local techniques, and show you how to get in on the action. Rainbow Bass fishing in Nicaragua, Machaca in Costa Rica, and Peacock Bass in Guyana are only a few of the adventures on the itinerary.

Whirlpool Muskie Missed

The Niagara Whirlpool fishing expedition was very eventful for several reasons but the highlight of the day’s fishing has to be when Justin hooked into an elusive muskie (only three feet from shore). He was using dark green tube jigs to target Small Mouth Bass when unexpectedly a muskie followed the jig all the way to the shore. After about two minutes of fighting, the fish of 10,000 casts won the bout and escaped into the rapids only a few feet away. Naturally Justin was very disappointed since this is the second time that a muskie has managed to escape him down in the whirlpool.

Does this mean that he now has to cast out his line 10,000 more time before hooking into another muskie?
