How do you catch Muskies?

I fish a lake near my house a lot and there is rumor that there is a Muskie in it. Im not sure if it is true or not but there have been two times when i was fishing for trout and when i was realing in a trout a very very big fish has taken the trout hole and snapped my line. I couldnt tell what it was but it is big. I want to try to catch what ever it is this year and i just want to know some ways to fish for Muskie because I have no clue what im doing when it comes to them and I think it may be a Muskie.

I always had good luck with this old stand by,also use a light steel leader or they will cut your line with there teeth.

No. I have three like that. Two small ones like that and a bigger one. They all have a horizontal bar that takes that bottom hook more to the back of the lure.

Just curious if they foul up on casts/retrieves more. I have caught a lot of fish on the old models but don't have any of those. Looks like if they run clean they would hook-up decent.
