Hello everyone, On my trip this year on Eagle Lake ontario I saw a legal musky that did a few follows then the whole rest of the week was high winds, and lightning and thunderstorms. I was unable to raise another musky on hardware or flies. The only thing I was able to get this fish to follow on was a 12" fly I have. I'm using a 10wt sage tcr to cast and I've tried using sharkskin magnum and rio outbound line. I'm having issues getting the fly any further than 30ft on my casts. I'm sure some has to do with my mechanics but I was wondering if going to an 11wt or 12wt rod and line, or should I be using a different 10wt line that will help me get a little distance?


Thanks,

Mike.
