Re: muskies

I've seen a few tigers near the surface sunning themselves but they wouldn't look at artificials. Any tips on what the mindset is on these fish and what I should be throwing lure or bait wise?

Re: muskies

Most of the time sunning muskies have already eaten. Sunning themselves warms them up and helps with digestion.

You can't get em from the couch.

Re: muskies

Not sure exactly what surface laying, swimming, porpoising, or head out of water muskies are actually doing.....but one thing i am fairly confident of is they are not agressively feeding.

Re: muskies

Thanks for the responses guys. So in your experience when you see muskies sunning themselves, are you catching other muskies that maybe more active or does the whole area(lake or river) seem to be void of active feeders?

Re: muskies

I have caught others sometimes and i have caught nothing sometimes . No rules in this crazy game, but if you're seeing them at least you have an area to fish.

Re: muskies

i think the tigers just porpoise just to tick me off....never had one take a lure. Dont think it has anything to do with sunning as i have seen them do it first thing in the morning and right before dark and all times in between. i have driven the boat right up to them where you could have netted them and they just keep swimming. maybe that is what happens when you mess with mother nature. maybe they are a little touched in the head.

Now your diggin' where the 'tators are!
