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've been using paddle tails and twister tail grubs as trailers this summer. I wish more companies made bladed baits, but I've just been buying Z-Mans because of the availability and price. 
    • cool story! I hope you get another crack at it next year!
    • When I had my internet service through the phone company it would go kaflooey every fall.  The guys would come out and clear out the mouse nests in the junction box out front.  The house was built in 65 and the phone line is underground.  One guy spent a lot of time out here and finally concluded that the underground line was shot and it would require mega screwing around to replace it.  He then came into the house and said that the phone lines run throughout the house were also shot and would have to be redone.  I switched to getting service from the cable company rather than having to spend so much to get things squared away.
    • Exactly! I love how people claim a candidate they have been backing won. As if there is any objective value in their opinion. Like I said before, the bar for POTUS is so low right now the best argument either side has is "your candidate is worse"
    • I agree with Mike#1
    • The polls are deceiving. The cattle, if they actually vote, are not the pollster types. Upper white collar, college stus and politely active are. Like my mother and family down in Florida.  Not online pollsters, not on a call list, don't answer phone after 7 because there is work tomorrow. My mother never votes. Good person but that old school soft racism which is never in play except the last year with all the tension going on. Hates Obama and sees Hillary as an extension of him. Point is, there is a possiblity, what I see on personal media, a lot who wouldn't vote, don't take polls, don't participate politically, have a strong side for Trump.  50/50 at best if they'll vote though. To be fair, I see the Bern crowd, huffing and puffing but more to the effect of what a joke trump is and seems a Democrat vote.    
    • We should probably learn to live on this planet before we mess up another one. Luckily our scientist lack the imagination to get us off this rock.
    • I may have missed it, but I don't believe they even discussed The Wall....
    • I was having issues with my ISP service recently same symptoms. I work from home and it kept randomly dropping and just got worse and worse. They sent a tech out and he redid all the cable terminations and also switched out some connection in the cable underground and he said they can go bad over time and I haven't had any issues since. They should be able to measure signal strength and know right away when they are onsite if you have any issues.
