Fall Musky

Hi folks this is Guide Dave Pucci.

Well this summers fishing is nearing and end and the Fall fishing is coming up fast.  That means Musky's to me.  While fall is also a great time fore Bass and Walleyes and most other species of fish, Musky's seem to be most people's first of choice.  As the water temps start to go down, Musky action can get fast and furious.  All the Musky's go on feeding binges, but finally the big fish can be caught. 
This is the time of year to beef up your tackle and get out the big Jerkbaits and start dragging medium to large suckers.  I like suckers anywhere from 14 to 16 inches unless I'm just after a trophy then I might go up to 16 to 20 inch suckers.  For me large double hook quick set rigs work the best.  I usually weight them down with at least an ounce of lead and fish them vertically over the side of the boat, 2 to 4 feet off the bottom.  Now on occasion I'll run a little smaller sucker behind the boat with a float, but most of the time I like one sucker on each side of the boat.  You'll have to experiment to see which way works best for you. 

I recommend large suckers on quick set rigs.  It's best to run several suckers at different depths.  I like to run one directly over the side of the boat, and keep it close to the bottom.  I'll also run one out the back of the boat on a float.  Usually the  one out the back of the boat, I'll run much shallower.  Remember when sucker fishing to move your boat slowly.  If you troll around with your suckers too fast, they'll not last very long.
