Robbie Bindercaught the muskie of a lifetime his first time muskie fishing.
As a birthday present from his dad, the Glenview 22-year-old fished with Christopher Taurisano of T-Bone Guide Service earlier this month on the Chain O’Lakes.
“Well, Robbie put three fish in the boat including this 49 3/4-inch musky!!!!!, a true Illinois beast!!” Taurisano exclaimed on Facebook.
Taurisano said it was caught on a double 8 Esox Assault bucktail.
