Musky... my biggest frustration

One word musky. they are definitely the fish of 10,000 casts. I have only caught two nicer sized muskies the first was at a small community park lake in falls township  we happened to see a very small tiger along the bank so we decited to try a few casts and within about 5 min i had on my first Once I realized that are net was too small thats when i was hooked that fluke of a first fish was just that a fluke it has been almost a year now of live bait topwater every swim bait imaginable and about 100 close calls till today i finally got another one i was much more well equipt this time though concidering that i just was at cabelas a few days ago a picked up a cabelas tourniment 7 6' heavy action casting rod with a shimano Cardiff 400 A spooled with 50lb power pro i was using a 50lb leader and launching a bass pro xps swim bait that looks almost exactly like the schools of shad that are running up and down the banks
