Gotta love that clamp on in the figure 8

9 posts in this topic

It's been a while since I caught a musky in the figure 8. I think all of my catches last year came early in the cast or before going in the 8. Until this Sunday, I had one rush in and on the 7th turn I felt that all familar drag. Gotta love it.

An hour later had a hog going in the 8 and on the 3rd turn she hit. No go on this one as everything did not come together. It got off.

It seems a few years back and prior I caught about 50% of my years muskies in the figure eight. Not sure why last year I didn't have any. Maybe because I picked prime time to fish and fish were more aggresive.

Anyone else love that tug? and what percent of your fish come in the 8.

Just curious.

I too will troll and I agree that initial hit especially if there is some weight behind it is awesome.

i've never trolled for muskies (of course usually i'm fishing out of a canoe...). what do you guys like to troll with? The couple times I've done it I used a Jake or a Grandma if i recall correctly

I've had good luck trolling an Ernie. Also caught some trolling a jerk bait.
