Well, the moe-stache’s of Movember have brought some nice fish… We are late enough in the season where the nicer the weather = the better the fishing. The front end of a cold snap can still produce, but when it’s been really cooling off the fish seem to lay low for a couple days. The mild sunny days have been producing some fish.
Most fish in my boat have been coming on Musky Innovation’s Double Dawgs and regular Magnum Bulldawgs. We haven’t really needed to break out the pounders here in the metro this fall. Fish are hanging on weedlines and some have been on deep structure as well. Baitfish on the graph is always a good signal that muskies are in the area… I feel like a bit of a broken record with the baitfish and timing stuff, but those are the biggest keys to finding late fall muskies. Feeding windows can be ultra short, you’ve got to get them nailed down to put fish in the net. The first hour after the sun sets has actually been a decent window for my boat lately too.
Here is a 51″ tank that I caught while fishing solo to scout a few spots for a guide trip. She ate a Musky Innovations Double Dawg.
Here’s Nick Eddy with a nice sunset muskie.
Here’s Rob Barabe’s Wisconsin Musky caught on a twitchbait.
Here’s Matt Mears with a last cast Double Dawg fish.
