Earlier in August was a hot time on Lac Seul for muskies. In 7 days we put 13 in the boat with 6 going 50 + inches. PDeez bucktails, top water and big plastics did the damage. I was introduced to the Magnum Shadzilla by Water Wolf Lures and watched it get crushed by a 50 and a 53.5 on the SAME DAY. Talk about a game changer! Here's a look at my new favourite bait. If you haven't used one or don't have one - do yourself a favour and order a bunch now. They're a straight up fish catcher.
Now check out the highlight reel of muskie pictures in this slide show. If this doesn't make you want to start casting, nothing will!
