Re: Need some help from the Seasoned guys!
I tried to send you a PM yesterday but it said that you were over the storage limit or something. Figured enough people sent you PM's or something. Anyway, you might want to check that since you asked people to message you. Which was a good decision vs the main board by the way.
But since we are here, fallingflock's advice is good. You aren't going to get a lot of people jumping to post musky catching how 2's on the main board this time of year. Not because people don't want you to succeed in catching one, but because summer muskies are a very delicate topic, full of dissagreements, even amonst the seasoned musky guys. There are many heated arguments over when to fish and when to shut it down to protect the fish. I'd recommend reading some of the opinions out there on musky fishing in high water temps. Regardless of where anyone stands on the temperature thing, I think most musky guys would agree that there is an increased danger to the fish's safe release when temperatures are reaching summer levels. A lot of other things factor in, but a number you'll see thrown out a lot is 80F. I think most guys don't want to post info encouraging people to head out right now. We all know how "expert" we were when we handled our first musky. Odds are we did some things wrong. Too many pics, too long out of the water, mishandling, you name it is is more likely to happen when you first start out. This time a year, one misstep probably means a dead fish.
If you do decide to give it a go now, at a minimum please be carfeul with the fish in terms of fight length and time out of the water. Thanks!
There is always a season!
