1982....Mid June, Channel between Upper Gull Lake and Gull lake outside of Branierd Mn.
We were 'bar hopping" with the boat and The Wives were with Us. 3 couples in My cousins 18' boat. The Sun had just set, it was about 9pm.
As We were leaving the Main Channel and entering Main Gull lake, I had tossed out a # 13 Gold Rapala and immediatly get a BIG strike... Of Course, I'm yelling to my Cousins, "get the net" They all were laughing and didn't believe I had anything but weeds.... I thought it was a BIG Pike, but No... it was a HUGE Muskie, at least 45".... got it boatside just as My Cousin Steve lunges at it with the net and scares the piss out of it. It got into some shorleline rocks that lined the egress out of the channel and that was that....
Everyone just kept saying how BIG that fish was as I reeled in the slack line.
All I could say was.... "next time... GET THE NET!"

As much as I hate to admit..
I've lost numerous VERY nice fish because of LAZYNESS/ STUPIDITY on My part..
No excuse....
Bad knots; not being attentive; over-excitedness; panic; etc, etc....
Made up for a few of them lately, BUT.... I always wonder about THEM fish?
Especially when I fish the waters where the stupidity occurred.. :-[
