Three generations of the Anderson family had a blast fishing here and something really BIG happened on the last hour of their trip!
The Anderson’s gang made their first trip here on Rowan Lake last summer and they came back to chase some of those big girls they saw last year. A cold front came through at the start of their trip last week and the muskies as they always do after a cold front were being a bit shy. The weather then stabilized and shortly after they began showing up and were chasing lures all over the lake. On the last afternoon of their trip Scott and his son Jake moved some big fish. They also couldn’t pass up a grilled steak wrapped in bacon dinner, so they rushed back to the lodge to literally inhale a steak and raced out after dinner to the spot where they saw the biggest fish earlier. Thunderstorm’s were moving in from the northwest and about 20 minutes before the rains came, Scott threw his red Stump Hawg in the right weed patch and the 50 inch beast ate it 30 feet from the boat. With the assistance of Jake the fish was netted and released and photos were snapped and they made it back to camp just in time before the rain and lighting set in for the evening. What a way to end a fishing trip! Congrats to the Anderson boys for making it happen.
