Me Bilg25 and Paco and another friend of mine went on the pursuit for toothies. We had a great morning. The musky didn't seem to interested but the pike were. Myself, Bilg, and Paco all got a pike 29", 27", and 27" all on the fly. My other buddy got a 22" walleye on an 8" musky lure. I got bit off on a mid 30's musky. I am now considering possibly wire or a different brand of flouro after 2 bite offs this season. It was my favorite fly too. Oh well I guess back to the tying bench to replace it.

Some mighty nice northerns there!

There are folks who pay top dollar to travel to Canada to catch fish like these on a fly and you guys are nailing 'em on FF gear right here in PA. Well done indeed.

Good point Fish,
I have a coworker who likes to go up to canada to go after big fish. Except for steelhead and other salmon type fishing it is hard to beat right here in PA. Up here the fishing in NW PA is great. Trout, steelhead, musky, SMB. You name it and we have it here in PA. The only problem is having enough fly rods and flys to chase all the fish!lol.

loaded the kayak up last night after work and headed to the lake to try for musky. got the skunk but had some excitement. I was fishing a weed line when i saw a large musky break the surface nearby. i ran 10-20 casts all over the area, backed off, switched flies, and approached again. on i think the third or fourth cast a huge swirl erupted under my line on the cast. lined em.
what did i do wrong? i'm using a 10wt with intermediate line. should i be using a floating line that lands lighter? i noticed blue gill fry, probably about 3-4 inches all over the lake. should i be using a fly that immitates these bluegill?

If that musky was just under the surface and you dropped a line on him they are just like any other fish they are going to spook. I would stick to the intermediate line. I don't use a floating line at all even for topwater. I doubt a floating line would have made any difference in this situation. I personally would not throw a 3-4 inch fly for musky but you could try it. I like the bigger stuff 10-12 inches. Its a lot easier for a musky to pick up a 10 inch fly with a big profile than a 3-4 inch fly with a small profile. The more vibration the fly makes in the water the better. Musky feed more off their lateral line and sensory pores than visually I believe. Now that doesn't mean they won't eat smaller prey. They are bipolar or something they could sit somewhere for hours with a million fish swim by and not give a crap but just one time one of those fish will look at them the wrong way and they go postal haha. It could be a 4 inch bluegill or a 20 inch sucker. They are a tough fish to pattern and really the only thing you can do is fish where you believe or know they are and throw a bunch of different flies and colors and usually at some point they go "postal" and smash your fly. Keep at it and it will happen.

I shook the stink off this morning & raised 3 different muskys. Landing 1 that pummled a "hand over hand" strip. I'm glad I switched to gama's. Nothing like tying a fly the night before a outing & stroking 1 within the 1st 10 casts.The 1st hook set wasnt the best but drove it home on the second one.

I had another 1 in the forties swipe at my fly 2x. Then we played hide and seek for a hr. She'd fallow every color change.I was a good morning, the actio quit when the sun got over head.

Nice purebred Paco!

You know it's a big fly when you see the tips out the back of the gill plate.

This guy look like he got clunked on the head back in the day.

The fly is a tandem tyed on a 7/0 Owner aki in the back and a Gama 130 6/0 in the front. The fly was actually outside the fishes mouth and it was just laying on it. It was a "nasty" looking musky, teeth missin and some cuts.

And Paco scores! Does look a little beat up, but great fish regardless. Cool fly too.

Hoping to try out a new spot sat morning myself...fingers are crossed.
