Darn muskies - they can be frustrating indeed.

When you encounter a situation like this where you can see a muskie but he won't eat your fly......your best bet is to switch to live bait......live line him a wild brook trout. Don't use a stockie, they don't like the taste - you need a brightly colored wild brookie rigged with a trebel hook and wire leader to get them to strike. If you're looking to get some wild brookies in south east PA for musky bait....send a PM to Chaz, hopefully he can help you find some bait.

Got out yesterday afternoon. Got myself a big one. Taped at 44".
Swirled my fly a few times and then nothing made a color change and wasn't seeing anything and for whatever reason I decided to do a figure 8 at the bank and the fish inhaled the fly. It's a little hard to get a good hookset with only 3 feet of your leader sticking out of the tip top. I'm guessing right about 25 lbs.

That's an awesome fish!!! What was it like having it inhale your fly so close to you? Did you have any idea he was so close?

Thanks guys this fish was a beast. I wasn't really sure how big it was till I got it to the bank.
DJ I sorta had an inkling that it was somewhere close but I really did not expect it to hit on the figure 8 I was just doing it for good measure. It was quite the rush. The worst part was having it hit with about 3 feet out of the tip top and having like 70 feet of line sitting at me feet and I knew I had to get this fish on the reel.

So, how long does it take to get 70 feet of line on the reel when you are fighting a monster? :)

Too long haha. No serously it took about 5 or 6 seconds I have a Ross CLA and they are pretty smooth so I just have to slap the side of it and it starts spooling up pretty quickly but it doesn't happen fast enough when thats on the other end. They start bulldogging to the bottom or come out of the water and do an alligator death roll and its all over. Luckily this one was hooked good. I do have to say that I don't think I would have had such good hook penetration on a short strike with mediocre hooks. I like my Gamakatsu.

Too awesome TD55.

Still using the flouro. This fish inhaled the fly and was rubbing all over the leader and it held up just fine. Did have to redo leader though it was frayed pretty good.
