The musky bite continues here in the northwoods. The unseasonably cool weather has the fish spread out and hitting on a variety of baits. The best bites seem to be in the extremes; super shallow or super deep. Fish are present and feeding on outer weedline but with temps in the 66-70 degree range, the fish have had no problem hanging in their comfort zone in super shallow water also(1-4 fow)including some very nice fish. Suspended fish over good bait or deep water structure with heavy bait seem to have been the least affected by the cool temps and are still biting well. Most action has been in the top 3-8 feet of the water column, which is where much of the bait has been located also. Synopsis: Dig 'em out of the super heavy weeds or find them in the basin. Small bucktails and jerkbaits have been producing along with straight model cranks and some rubber out deep. Persistence pays off.
Pics are of client John who boated a nice fish on a recent trip with his wife Michelle. Congrats John!
Also, father/son clients Walter and Ryan boated this nice fish. It was Ryan's first musky ever! Awesome!
PS NICE CHIP FISH!
