I was fishing today with a double showgirl and I had about a pound northern on. I got it to within 10 feet of the boat when a muskie came up and grabbed both the northen and the lure. It spit the northern and the lure out twice only to come immediatly back at it. After about 5 minutes of this I finally caught both the northen and the muskie. The muskie measured 48". Just thought id share the story with you guys... Im sure you all have some just like it.

A couple years ago, a buddy and I were fishing for eyes in about 20 ft of water when he got a bite, started bringing it in. About half way in, he got slammed. After a few minutes, I slide the net under a a 2 pound northern and a 41 inch musky....all on 6 pound test! Best part was, it was my buddy's first musky, and neither of us brought a camera, so to this day, our friends don't beleive he caught it!

The muskies have been all over the northerns this year. I've never seen them chase and follow the northerns like they have been. Lots of different lakes, same story. This was happening even before fish would look at other baits. Couple times we had northerns hit right next to the boat and the muskies were still arse-to-nose with them, like they were sitting there just waiting for them to move.

Fishing had been kind of slow for me lately so I went out and bought the pikiest bait I could possible find and ripped it around like it was struggling to get off a hook. Yes, it worked. It was by and far the most aggressive action I've seen this year in one day. I'm going to stick with this pattern the rest of the season until I find something that works. KEEP IT SIMPLE, STUPID! I think I need to write this on the inside of my sunglass lenses this season.

50inch - did she just grab the northern and not let go and you were able to net her, or did you get a hook into her as well?

I think your question was for the original poster - I have not actually had any skies grab my northerns but got action on a bait I was using to imitate a hooked/struggling northern.

    • The Clinton camp might have thought twice before parading the former beauty queen out to show how bad he is to women considering the extensive list if women her husband has had his fun with over the years. I am surprised that the Republicans haven't made them more if an issue but I suppose they didn't want her to play the victim card but at this point I think they have to take off the gloves and throw it out there.
    • Is that all I'm good for?!         I know the answer is yes....
    • Thanks Lip Ripper, I've looked at a couple of your builds on this page and I never would have noticed that! I've never seen a fish house in my area as the closest lake safe to drive on in the winter is an hour and a half away, so I definitely appreciate all the help I can get from the experts!!!  
    • A teleprompter really helps to not make people look stupid.
    • Team Europe had a chance last night. Leading late into the 3rd and the wheels come off. Even with a PP with under 2 minutes left to play they give up a short handed goal!? Tough one, but Canada is certainly the better team. Glad its over so we can get our players all back with the wild, but I did enjoy the tourney even though the US was terrible.
    • That would have been a fine answer.   Unfortunately instead he sat there with his mouth hanging open (figuratively) and looked like a total dolt.   This is the second time he has handled something in an interview poorly.  I guess he feels he needs the exposure but unfortunately he is not especially good at the interview thing.   At the very least he needs to practice deflecting the question.  Perhaps the "nobody especially" but "I prefer to look to American leaders of the past like (Calvin Coolidge, Teddy Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, William Calhoun, whoever he wants)"  He can't just sit there and and look stupid, which is what he did.    Maybe some role playing in preparation would have helped.   He can't be as ignorant and inept as he has come across in TV interviews.
