Yesterday, I visited the wonderfully named Lake #35 at August A. Busch Memorial Conservation Area in St. Charles County. The only reason I was at the lake was to catch a muskie.
I spent three hours walking along the eastern side of the lake. It took quite a bit of walking to find an area that wasn't choked with weeds. Matters were not helped by the fact that the lake was several feet below its normal level.
In the end, I walked back to my car with a nice sunburn and missing three $12 lures. I did not get a single bite, nor did I see a single muskie following my lures. I'm hoping for better luck next weekend in northern Missouri!
