I remember fishing Minnetonka with Dean and his dad . I had this hybrid Muskie keep hitting my line under a dock but wouldn’t take it. He castes over and does some goofy jerking with his spinner and catches it first cast. Was one of the coolest things I ever saw and got me stuck on fishing the rest of my life. Thanks for the good times you’ll be sorely missed. Good bless you guys.
