Musky Mania 26, October 2000
Time for a new MM trophy so a second plaque was added below the current trophy to go from MM26-MM50. Musky Pete re-petes again with a 40” fish caught on Found Lake with the same bait, the bass colored Slammer, he won MM25 with.
Lunch was on Palmer Lake. Awards were at the Boulder Beer Bar.
Jim Laszewski and Tom Baehnman decide to follow Musky Pete to see where he catches the big ones. We are staying at Darrell’s cottage again and Jimmy Jessup and Musky Pete head to Hoot Lake with Jim and Tom hot on their trail. Have to drive into a ditch to get around a utility truck and down a dirt road to reach Hoot. Get there and Jim and Tom tell Musky Pete to take his drain plug out of the boat as it rained a little the night before. Well the water drained out for about 15 minutes as those two nuts filled Musky Pete’s boat with water the night before with the garden hose. They had a great laugh and left for another lake.
