Muskies?? Is anyone chasing them??

I know FishDr and I have been chasing skis and I have only boated 1 Tiger 36" so far I have had a pile of lazy follows and such with 2 lost pure strains boatside prior to getting them in the net. I blame my hooks, but anyhow I want to hear how all of you guys are doing and how you think this year is going for you. The weather seems like it is playing a factor. piles of rain in the spring and now 80-90 degree heat..Anyhow here is my Tiger I caught on a Firetiger Musky buck tandem.

Re: Muskies?? Is anyone chasing them??

Geez, 8 in a week. That's sweet! I have 11 for the year, but that includes as far back as January.

The water temps in MD are getting close to 80, so it's almost time to hang it up until around September. Hard to believe the time went by so fast.

My fishing this year has been lousy. I've had three on and lost them all. Heading out tomorrow to change that!

Re: Muskies?? Is anyone chasing them??

The only action I've had so far is a couple follows. MrLuck, why do you blame your hooks? Ed, if your water is getting that warm, start looking for moving water. ( rivers and streams) Flowing water has more than enough disolved oxygen even into the low or mid 80s. That will keep you fishing longer without risking harm to the fish.

You can't get em from the couch.

Re: Muskies?? Is anyone chasing them??

Hey guys, I have never fished for muskies but a buddy of
mine and I are gonna give it a try. Just looking for some
advice. What lures or bait to use? Any line preference?
Any other tips on fishing for them would be appreciated!

I'd rather be fishing or hunting!

We only have the Potomac. I do understand that even lower 80s is good since there is more DO. I'll be looking at the Susky later this week.

I'm also headed to Minn. in two weeks for a five day trip. One guided by Mike Hulbert (Musky Hunter TV/Mag) and 4 others with a new-found friend up there.

Re: Muskies?? Is anyone chasing them??

I went with my boss yesterday to Curwensville Lake. We had one on and 3 follow up the the boat. We were using what my boss called Mr Wiggles. More or less a 6in rubber minnow with two hooks that was weedless. My boss has 15 or so caught and his good friend has at least 20 caught for the year so far. His friend Virgil las year I think has over 100 for the season. yes he is that guy, he also has a really cool wife that lets him fish at least 260 plus days a year

Friends don't let friends buy inlines

Re: Muskies?? Is anyone chasing them??

Geez, 100 for the year. 260 days per year is a ton of fishing. Maybe he's halfway through his year, say 130 days...given that, and estimating 6 hrs per trip = 780 hours fished, 100 fish, = 7.8 hrs per fish....that's about right. I think I'm at 9 hrs/fish.
