TheDogger is on to something - 5 fish in 3 nights labor day weekend last year on DCG. Had a few hits on Topraiders as well.

Straight retrieve Topwaters such as Pacemakers, LOWriders, or Topwalkers works wonderful, along with big blade bucktails... Spinnerbaits works... Im sure you already changed some of your raddogs' blades to #10 blades... those would work... #1 thing when using Spinnerbaits or Bucktails... reel them VERRRRRY slow... slow enough that the blades are turning...

If you cant see at all at that time, then chances are that the fish cant see either... so you'd definitely want to throw out lures that gives out lots of vibration/thumps...

as for plastics... I have no idea if that would work... unless you just do a slow straight retrieve...

Basically... just throw out anything that gives out good vibes/thumps you want to throw out... as long you do a straight retrieve... those muskies wouldnt be able to zero on those zig-zags as easily as they would on straight retrieves...

Big plastics like curly sue's move a lot of water, they are definitely felt by the fish!
