Jeff's first 2012 muskie, Emmrod of course

He she is my first muskie of our 2012 Oak Island  trip.  Not huge but came in at 40 inches. The rig was an Emmrod Packer with a 5500C ABU reel loaded with 20lb Momoi mono.  The leader was 40lb fluorocarbon tied into the main line with a four turn surgeons knot.  The lure was a Slayer lure jig harness with a 1/2 ounce Slayer head and a 5 inch ZMan paddle tail.   The fish hit right up against a weed bed no more than 30 yeard from where I got an even bigger one last year.
