My muskie – 42 inch caught on 10/19/2013 on Lake Shelbyville
Lure – 6 inch Blue and Silver Jake

Hi, my name is Austin Goody. My Dad and I went to Lake Shelbyville on Friday October 18th ,did some fishing and nothing. There was 12 in our group.We had a little tournament for bass and one for muskie. On Saturday 10 / 19 / 2013 we started at 8 am and it ended at 4pm. I got several 12 to 15 inch bass nothing big. My dad and I fished above on the lake until 2:30 with no muskie yet and a small bag of bass. We decided to go below the spillway. At 3:40 I finally got to a spot that I lost a 40 incher or so last year . I said to my self finely that man s leaving. I hustled over there and started throwing the same lure as last year. That lure was a 6 inch blue and silver Jake. I was in the spot maybe 5 minutes and my 4th throw and on a retrieve 4 feet from shore I paused the lure and from no where the muskie slammed my lure and I was like OH SHOOT ! OH SHOOT. Get the net I got one. My dad rushed over and netted my muskie. I wasn’t loosing  this one this  time. It was great to land one over 40, looking forward for my next hope to get a 50.

Thanks so much. Austin
