What's going on everyone?! This is my first time posting on this site so I want to introduce myself. My name is Chris and I grew up bass fishing in NJ. Once I moved to PA, I purchased my first boat to fish at Marsh Creek. This is where my addiction began.... I spent all Spring bass fishing, but once I heard stories of muskies being caught there my attention quickly shifted toward the musky. I caught my first musky during the summer and have been fishing for them since. Any chance I get to go fishing, I take!

Here is a video I made of a musky I caught this past week.

Enjoy! ;D

I also have 2 other videos on my youtube channel. One is my first Tiger Musky @ 41" and the other is my friend catching a 34" Tiger Musky.

Hi Chris,

Welcome to the site! Really well done video and thanks for sharing it. Seeing your just starting out, can see you've done your homework. Nice job on netting the fish solo, great airborn footage, being prepared with your release tools and a nice shot of you supporting your fish.

Congrats on your great catch! Beautiful healthy fish!

Chris,

Good having you on board. As Silvia said, for someone just starting out in this sick pastime, you certainly have done your homework. Good technique in the handling of the net and the fish. Congrats on both the fish and capturing the fight, netting and release of the fish on camera.

Thanks guys! I'm looking forward to joining the club and hope to learn much more from all of you. Since my first catch, I have been learning the proper ways of catching and releasing of these wonderful fish. Not to long ago I found a dead 40"+ musky floating at the surface. It killed me to see such a beautiful creature like that dead.

Here's a pic of my first musky which started my addiction.

This should entertain most of you. During the summer while I was bass fishing I came across this guy barely alive. Drove my boat right next to him and scooped him up. It was a decent size bass, probably 3-3.5 lb. Seems like the Musky were hungry that day 😮

Hey Chris,

Seeing the video of your boat I just realized that we've bumped into each other once or twice on MC. You were there 2 weeks ago when I got a 43" fish. I told you I got it on a black bulldawg. Glad to see you're doing well.

Of course I remember that. That fish was a beauty and put up one hell of a fight!
