I carry a net and plastic grippers

I haven't been nailed by a musky yet, but it happens. I was nailed by something big lower down on the upper Potomac - around Riverbend - one time. But I was fishing for bluegill on an ultralight noodle rod on 4lb test and never had a chance. I had a bluegill on and was bringing it when all of a sudden that "bluegill" reversed course and spooled me. The line broke off right at the lure or close to it, so I had to retrieve 90 yards of monofilament and retie. I always figured it was a big catfish that had done it, but it could have been a musky too.
