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...

    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
