I finally shook the skunk off today. And it was an awesome day!! I had follows on most of my casts. I had a mid 30's follow and that got the heart beating pretty hard. I spooked a few fish on the figure 8, which was weird, in spite of the rain the water was really clear, I'm assuming my motion spooked em. Also had a beautiful Tiger Musky follow on the 8 and peeled off at the last second when he caught a glimpse of me. The vertical bars were pretty kool lookin.

Wow! That's a very nice pike TD.
Interesting and very dense spot patterns on his gill cover - a real beauty.

Total noob to fishing for these guys fly gear or otherwise. I know a pond that holds pickeral though and was thinking of getting out there on my kayak.

I'm assuming a wire leader is needed for pickeral as well as pike and musky??

I'm headed up to cabelas today with the lady friend cause she has never been, thinkin I might grab some odds and end while there that my local sport shop doesn't stock.

I notice you are using 9 - 10wt. rods but what kind of length and action? More like a steelhead rod or a shorter more stout model?

JV,
Snakeheads have something of a growing cult following on the lower Potomac river but I have not personally pursued them as I prefer the upper Potomac where they don't exist thankfully (at least not yet). There are some guides who can probably get you into to them. There are some waters around Philly with 'em but I don't hear about guys targeting them.

As for the rod, I usually use a 10WT for muskies - the same rods I use for salt. 9' medium fast. You're throwing very big flies but sometimes you will be casting close or around cover and some rods might be a bit on the fast side. Conventional gear muskie guys like very long bait casting rods but with soft tips that make casting easier. I'm not one who pays particularly close attention to rod action so others may suggest a different take on this (of course).
