  • Don’t Put That Rig Away Yet…There Are BIG Muskies In Kentucky!!!

    Don’t Put That Rig Away Yet…There Are BIG Muskies In Kentucky!!!
    by DENNIS RADLOFF

    I used to get a little misty eyed on November 30th each year because I knew it would be five months before I'd throw another lure at a musky. NOT ANYMORE!!! Musky fishing as I know it has changed forever, and even though Wisconsin's' musky season closed on Friday, there's plenty of excellent fishing...
  • Fishing with one of America's Finest!

    Fishing with one of America's Finest!
    by DENNIS RADLOFF

    It's 12:10pm, Thanksgiving Day, and in the hustle and bustle of the smell of Turkey cooking, football on the television, and the union of family, friends and loved ones, I found myself, as I'm sure millions of others, drifting off in thought. As the sounds of the game, the conversations, and the aro...

  • Fall Musky Progressions

    Fall Musky Progressions "Part 2"
    by DENNIS RADLOFF

    Well folks here we go... the last "hurrah" of the season. Only 30 days left before our musky season closes here in Wisconsin. For the most part things have been a little different this year in regard to the pattern back in September due to "summer" like conditions, so the patter discussed in the Par...

  • Fall Musky Progressions

    Fall Musky Progressions "Part 1"
    by DENNIS RADLOFF

    It's here! That special time of year all of us musky diehards look forward to…the beginning of fall. "What makes fall so great compared to the rest of the season?" my wife asks with a puzzled look on her face. Maybe it's the decrease of boat traffic, or the cooler temperatures, or maybe the decrease...

  • When's the best time to go fishing?

    When's the best time to go fishing?
    by DENNIS RADLOFF

    Through my travels in the fishing industry I have heard many questions far and broad pertaining to presentation, location, techniques, gear, electronics, boats, motors, and every thing in between. However, there is one question that seems to surface more than any with the greatest degree of intrigue...

  • Opening Day Muskies

    Opening Day Muskies
    by DENNIS RADLOFF

    Finally! Our long winter slumber has ended and May 1st 2004 will mark the opener for all musky waters in the southern part of Wisconsin. All those long cold winter days filled with day-dreams about the next musky season are now faced with only one decision, where to start. Early season muskies as...

  • Suckers For Fall Muskies

    Suckers For Fall Muskies
    by DENNIS RADLOFF

    Fall is here folks, and there's no better time of year than now to be on the water chasing muskies around. While throwing your traditional jerk baits at these marvelous predators is very effective during this time of the year, it's also the prime time of the season to be rigging some live bait. ...

  • Moon Phase Muskies

    Moon Phase Muskies
    by DENNIS RADLOFF

    Does the moon phase really have an effect on the fish activity? This question was one I often wondered about, and depending on whom I talked to the answer varied. While over the course of time the response from experienced anglers began to say consistently that yes this is a legitimate factor, I sti...

  • Let It

    Let It "Glide"
    by DENNIS RADLOFF

    October is upon us once again, and all my favorite things are taking place. Football is back in full swing, the leaves are changing colors, my sweetheart has a fresh batch of chili simmering on the stove, and muskies are back on the structure! While fishing along with a client the other night I cau...

  • Muskies In The Dark

    Muskies In The Dark
    by DENNIS RADLOFF

    If you're like me, then you most likely share many of the same sentiments regarding fishing anywhere this time of year. It's too damn hot during the day, and too many boats and wave runners tearing the lake to pieces even if you wanted to try fishing any more. What used to be "hot spots" are now "no...

  • Did somebody say SUICK?

    Did somebody say SUICK?
    by DENNIS RADLOFF

    Finally it's here! This Saturday, May 4th, it's a new season for Musky and all other game fish on our lakes here in SE Wisconsin. I will be out there with the rest of you trying to get that first Musky to boat side. After the last few articles I have completed on Musky lures, I thought I'd start...

  • Musky Lures, Dennis’ Dirty Dozen (part 2)

    Musky Lures, Dennis’ Dirty Dozen (part 2)
    by DENNIS RADLOFF

    Another month down and only 32 more days until Musky season opens here in SE Wisconsin! My office right now is completely littered with musky lures, rods, reels, and other terminal tackle as I sharpen hooks, change split rings, oil reels, check rods, and of course, pamper my "Dirty Dozen". I have th...

    Musky Lures, Dennis’ Dirty Dozen (Part 1)
    by DENNIS RADLOFF

    One of the most frequently asked questions I hear is, "So, what is the best lure?" What a question! With a gazillion lures on the market today, in every size, shape, and color it's hard to single it down to just one lure. What I can do though is share what I affectionately refer to as my "Dirty Doze...

  • The First

    The First
    by DENNIS RADLOFF

    Life is full of firsts. First kiss, first date, first dance, first touchdown, first ticket, first boat, first fish, first musky, and first 10-pound walleye! Over the holiday break this season, I found myself paging through some pictures and re-living some of the days on the water from this past year...

    Too Cold For Muskies? NEVER!
    by DENNIS RADLOFF

    If your fingers have feeling, and your line isn't frozen on the reel, and your feet are toasty warm then chances are good that you're sitting in front of the TV watching the football game? There's only 30 days left before our Wisconsin musky season closes, and November possess the final, no, the ult...
