On a side note, to go along with the hero/zero, for anyone who thinks they might actually be an “musky expert”, I have successfully developed a couple ways to knock yourself back down a notch and keep yourself grounded.

1. BD (Before Dbl 10’s): Go to LOTW for a week with a complete novice (wife, girl friend, son, daughter, bass buddy) and have them cast nothing but a Top Raider all week while you try a variety of other lures.
2. AD (After Dbl 10’s): Make a bunch of Dbl 10 lures for your "less experienced" buddies and fish for a week on LOTW hitting all of the same milk run spots.
