Hi folks. I live on a river over in WI. The primary fish is smallies but pike and musky are around. Just this week I’ve lost two lures. One that I think was a bite through from an ok size northern, a second on about a 36″ musky that broke the line at the boat when I was trying to get him into the net.
Obviously I’m not setup right. You guys know these freshwater sharks better than I. I know you use heavier setups when trying for them but what would you use if you weren’t targeting them specifically? Would you go with a certain test, or specific line style/brand, etc? I know I need a bigger net just in case lol.
