In 20 years when we're using synthetic materials for hooks we'll be casting 3 foot flies that weigh as much as a single. It's the future....man

There was a reliable story (included photos) of a hooked, 33" muskie in the Susquehanna River about 15 years ago that was attacked and mauled by a much larger muskie as it was being reeled in by an angler. The smaller muskie, although cut up, was landed and released. The fisherman was a veteran muskie guy and he estimated the bigger fish to be about 55 inches. Although he returned many times, he never saw the biggie again.

You're gonna need a bigger boat......and a bigger fly!

It's been a while since I've posted. I've been really busy with work and a move. Have done some fishing picking up some pike and musky. With the new boat have done a lot more rowing than fishing but I enjoy that as well. Just got back from Wisconsin Monday night fishing with Brad Bohen again. We did really well. I caught 3 musky 35" 38" and 40". I also caught a pike about 30-32" and a toad of a walleye that was about 26". Even caught a decent smallmouth for the Northwoods Slam. A guy that went with me caught 2 musky both around 34-35" he also missed on right before I caught the 40" fish that would have crapped mine out. Here are some pics of the trip.

It was an awesome trip. The Walleye, pike, 2 of my musky and both of phils were all on the 1st day. The 2nd day it got really windy and tough fishing had one follow to the boat and peel off then we had a suicide pike that ate my fly 4 times and Phil's 4 times but we couldn't get a hook into it. It was probably only 18-20". The 2nd day right away Phil missed the big one and I caught that other musky and I missed one more and also had a couple follows. I look forward to this trip every year and already can't wait for next year.

Excellent! Love the pics.

It looks, from what I can see, that the guys in WI focus on some faster water when targeting muskies. Were you seeing fish in current or even riffles......or in slack side eddies (or all)?

Was the smallie as big as the fly?

The fish in Wisconsin are literally everywhere. We did have the best luck in the eddies in the rapids or just below the rapids. The smallie was prob 16". Didn't get a pic if it but it was a pretty chunky fish.

Awesome pictures and fish! I'd love to get out there one day...

I'm going on a float trip down the Susky tomorrow for smallies and musky. Hoping with the full moon and recent rain we can get something going.

I just got my new 9' 8wt. and a decent selection of appropriate flies.
Now the big question is where to go first? Anyone throw me somewhere in Lancaster area or close surrounding area.
Any info. is greatly appreciated.

Look at warm water stocking list in the PAFBC site. You'll have to go back a couple yrs. like 10. These thing grow slow. Musky guys are really right lipped so do as much investigation ya can. Then just throw and throw again. Keep your flys swimming. Alotta guys talk about fish for musky waiting for prime time. If your waiting for prime conditions and "picking your spots" to go your in for a long wait. There are a tell tail "good" times fall, full moon & high water is awesome. But ya gotta get out chase these fish down and make it happen. Don't just talk "do".
