A solid blue bar suddenly appeared on the map of Detroit Lake on Jerry Sondag's fish finder.

"Must be a glitch in the map," he said. "But maybe it's a sign."


Being a very superstitious muskie fisherman, Sondag kept the boat within the boundary of the blue box for the next 20 minutes, looking for a bite.

"You won't think I'm crazy when we catch a big one," he said.

The bite never came and the blue box was abandoned, but it had to be tried.
