An Epic Battle – The Monksville Chronicles #110

I was out ice fishing one evening and the snow was falling heavy. That was the one day I left my tip-ups out and went home to get something to eat instead of bringing the sled-shack, the one day, but when I got back I had two flags up. One was a dud, but the other was not. You can usually tell if it’s a muskie because the spool goes around really fast, and that spool was spinning; I wound up trying to get it landed for about an hour. A couple friends came out, you were there with your buddy, we had a whole crowd. After an epic battle the thing finally broke off, my blood was pumping so hard that I didn’t even need gloves. It was a big fish. I’ll never know how big, but it was a big fish.
