week after opener, Jeff and I were once again casting along the stretch of
shoreline that held memories of the large fish of the year before. Splash, and
the rhythmic action of the jerkbait as it was worked back to the boat.
the back of the boat I noticed a dark movement out of the corner of my eye. From
the size of it I knew it was the fish from last year, eyeing me and then
dropping out of sight. I was speechless. It reappeared at the front of the boat,
checking out Jeff, and then started slowly circling the boat. It's eye never
could almost imagine the theme from the movie "Jaws" as it circled.
know what you are thinking. A Muskie wouldn't or couldn't ever take revenge like
that. Or would it? Just contemplate that the next time you are on the water!
course you are right: the account was fiction, a figment of my
imagination....... or was it??
