My Bossman and I got out musky hunting on Sunday in Northern Illinois. This was the first time either of us had ever targeted the big toothy critters. It was an overcast day with air temps just below water temps. Around 9:30am Bossman landed this 40″ clear musky on a DT14-Chartreuse and Brown. We spent the day working hard for another, trolling and casting big baits. We were rewarded with huge northerns(for the lake). About an hour before we had to get off the lake I ended up hooking into this 38″ spotted musky on a huge inline spinner. All I can say is, this is an addiction I was not ready for.
We’re heading out again tomorrow. Are there any lures I absolutely NEED in my Musky arsenal? I have a couple Storm Thunderbeasts, and a few doublebladed inline spinners. ANy and all suggestions are welcome and appreciated.
