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!

    •   Not only that, but the boy they're hitching their wagon to ( Nunes ) said this;   Snip. "But he also re-stated his belief that Obama did not order the wiretapping of Trump Tower"  
    •   Those are great names from the kids. They seem to know where they will end up in the end! Instead of sweety, cuddles, lovey........  Lol
    • For something different and a little less expensive you could consider a Texas hog hunt.

    • Not nails but worse, they are self tappers from the metal roofing:)  Sorry, I need to take the angle grinder out there and zip those off this weekend.  Funny you bring up the name kabob, that is actually the name of one of them if they don't produce:)   Here is a short list of the names my kids came up with:   - Kabob - Soup - Nugget - Fried - Drummie - Pot Pie   I cant remember the others but you get the point...    
    •   I agree that in the long run, the very best thing that could be done is to completely repeal the ACA and then continue to reduce government involvement. The problem with that is this is a messed caused by government that would become a disaster at least short term for some folks if it were immediately repealed. At this point, government created the mess so it has an obligation to fix it with as little damage as possible to the people.
