My friend Sean invited me to his family's place in Eagle River, Wisconsin. He goes muskie fishing every year, and I was honored to tag along.

Esox masquinongy, the muskellunge, is a notoriously difficult fish to catch. Tomorrow we will spend the day on one of the chains up here, trying to land one of these elusive monsters. This specimen was caught by Sean's mother many years ago, and once held the world record for a muskie caught on 14-lb. test.
