If you're looking for muskies

If you're looking for muskies, now is the time of year to be out fishing for them. The reports of 50 plus inch fish just keep coming. I was out at six o'clock this morning chasing the elusive muskie on a guide trip. The wind was blowing pretty hard out of the south so I stuck to the south shore, north side of the island, and Wagner's bay. We tried everything from topwater to buck-tails with no luck. I think the changing weather this morning hurt us.

The best bite has seemed to be from 5 p.m. until dark during the last few weeks. Stick to the weed edges and reefs. Throw a black buck-tail or a topwater right before dark and you will raise some fish.

For those of you that know Matt Oscarson, I have to add that he caught a 40 plus pound (he claims) muskie on Tuesday night while trolling a spinnerbait but lost it after breaking the net. Congrats to Matt, and good luck to all!
