I am usually chasing Cats on the river or Eyes on the lakes, but this trend in hitting me fast. I am yet to land a good sized pike period, but this year I hope to change that. I picked up a 7' Med/Heavy Action Gander Mountain Competion Series rod and a Abu 6600 C3 baitcaster today. Along with a nice selection of used and new lures mostly from members right here. All I need is a tackle box to hold these monster lures (hint hint if you got one to sell) and a boat and its on. I am in the area of French lake so i will probably try there first. I think this may test my patience a bit. Good luck everyone.

Smeese,

I spent years fishing French lake and I can tell you the muskie population is good on that waster!

When the lake is PEA SOUP don't be afraid to fish it, I've caught

many muskies out there when you couldn't hardly see a thing!

The sunken island West Central part of lake is always worth checking.

Pick up a "[PoorWordUsage] HOUND" by ERC and give that lure a try out there

I think you will do fine after a few trips out there.

Best of Luck

Brian K

French Lake... I LOVE that lake... excellent fishing there... like Muskyman said... when the water's "pea soup" its still excellent there... Dont be afraid to use Cowgirls in this lake... black works great... Its 800 acres lake so it recieves heavy pressure...

U're thinking of Musky Bling (marabou-type DB10s) or Dominatrix (Flashabou-type DB10's) by Tacklebooty... Those two comes in stock with BLACK blades... Musky Mayhem doesnt do solid BLACK blades for their DCGs... closest you can get would be SMOKE... similar to black silver... Llungen does a Black Smoke/Silver for their nightbite series DC-10...

If you really want a custom-made all-BLACK DB10 bucktails... talk to Gerry Carroll... hes from Wisconsin... and he makes those Gerry's Girls and Gerry's Partygirls... his prices are excellent... and he makes them the way you want it done... with either 0.25 or 0.40 thickness Blades... I plan to order some from him soon...

You could also check out Spanky's Bait, also out of Wisconsin... they also do custom DB-10s which they call Fireballs... and I can say that the Fireballs are similar-priced to DCGs...

If its a MUST that your DB10 comes from Musky Mayhem and that it be all BLACK, then I guess your only option would be to purchase the Super DCG...

    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
    • Well there are a lot of ways to do it.   I'm going to bolt it down through the counter top, using the bolt holes for the leg levels. The idea of using straps and d rigs would look like dump and Be pretty pointless........it would be has much work having to ratchet strap the thing every time I was going to move vs setting it down on the floor. 
    • Yes it is a very good round.
    • I picked up a 6.5 creedmoor in a Kimber Montana last fall for a super lightweight 0-400 yard deer/antelope gun.  It is definitely the hot "new" cartridge in shooting circles due to the really good ballistics and low recoil.  And extreme accuracy.  I doubt the cartridge is going anywhere any time soon.  Virtually all the big manufacturers are building one now.
