I've been after these musky all year. While bowfishig the river I'd see 5-7 of them under the lights. I'd make a second pass casting without the lights but could never get them to hit. Last night was no different but I headed down below a creek inlet and there were 8 all within 25 yards of eachother. I shut down the lights and beached the boat. A few casts later I hooked it one, it ended up spitting the lure. Tried several other lures but the first cast with a Mepps musky killer I pulled this one in. Cool



Didn't catch any more musky but when I left at 12:30 I had to hit the lights for a look. There were still a pile of them hanging out just below the creek inlet! I left them be cause I still wanted to shoot some carp. Wacked some small ones and a few good ones.

Made it out to the river again and pulled in a couple more musky. Got the smaller one on an 8" jointed rainbow trout crankbait, the other on a Mepps musky killer. Seen some real lunkers out there so I'm going to keep at it. Cool

No secrets Dale, just fish where they're at and throw everything in your box at them. Cool
