Huge Muskie Encounter

33 posts in this topic

Here is a short clip of a Huge Muskie that interrupted my perch fishing this past Saturday. I have more footage of her on a longer clip as she made (2) drive-by appearances within 20 minutes. When the perch skidaddled the second time I was ready and hit the record button.........good thing I went with that gut feeling!

Enjoy,

Even though I see that many times a season it always gets the heart pumping. And yes I'm a muskie guy to.

Sweet, What do you use to record off of your aquaview?

I don't have video of it but perch fishing on winnie we had a tightly packed school of 4 or 5 pike come by one time. No interest in our baits or camera, they just slowly cruised though. Very exciting to watch them watch all those pike swim by the camera at one time ...... and made me wonder if there were more on the other side of the camera that I couldn't see.

I am currently using an Aqua-Vu as my black and white set-up and a Seaviewer for my color.

I will try to get the other clip containing the first time I saw her up on YouTube for all to see. I could basically bore you to death with 9" -10" perch clips, but the reaction of the crowd when the missile moves in is PRICELESS!

Here is the clip from the first time she comes by. If you want you can fast forward to 5:25 and watch the perch(bottom left corner) moving in on the jig after it is re-introduced. The quick departure is what alerted that something was up! ENJOY!!

I agree, there are ALOT of perch there, atleast you will have fun catching them, Looks like that girl is still pretty active, wonder if you will get a "bite" when brining in a perch ....

I do not have a Under water camera so my question may be dumb but how or what do you use to make a video like that?

Muddpuppy,

I am using an Aqua-Vu Scout XL with the DVR recorder. It works very well and is quite entertaining.

    • Was clearing some downed trees from trails this morning. Checked a couple of trees and would you look at that. I didn't look very hard so I'm sure there are more, but of course have to head to work. Cold weather predicted after today though...  
    • Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success.  Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage.  Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working.  We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us.  No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke).  I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!
    •   CM..that is a big "if" and pretty much the story of the series...good puck possession, lots of shots, few goals...and they have to find guys that can score against the "Allen's" of the world going forward...we aren't going to be playing against trash tenders come any playoff time.   Agree with your observation on the D zone coverage...way too much stick checking all over the ice by both forwards and Dmen...lack of putting body on opponents is either A  - pure laziness or  B - simply outmatched physically. This has to be addressed going foward.   Quite frankly I cannot think of one player that stepped up in the playoffs and played above their reg season...not one.    Haula seems to be a headcase...I don't think he is near as good as he thinks he is and tends to beat to his own drum IMO but we might be stuck with him. Ek will figure it out...playing in the World's now after playing in the Junior World's as well so he'll keep working on his game and be a good one soon IMO.   Will be interesting to hear Fletch's spin on things when he assesses things publicly soon but my guess is it will be "the sky is not falling...blah blah blah" same dump every year.  Sounds Like Leo is keeping him unfortunately...but he's made his own bed, now he has to sleep in it and there are not many GM's in the NHL that envy his postion IMO.  
    • So this is my first year playing Bassmasters Fantasy Fishing, What does the Own % mean and does it have anything to do with the points you would earn if that person is on your team?  Or is it a % of people that have picked that person.   Thanks
    • What are my choices?   I have a pump, well actually two pits with two pumps, one on each end of basement.   Probably half horse pumps?   I don't recall what they are.     So if I get one of those battery back up things, ideally I would want it to protect against both pump failure and power outage.  I figure power outage is maybe 12 to 24 hours except for some real disaster here in Rochester.   Pump failure could be days if I am out of town.   But if the battery charger can keep up with the average draw, it would be ok.   Pumping head is about 5 feet if that matters.  
    • If possible, get doctor to give you prednisone or an inhaled cortico-steroid like flovent or asminex (assuming you have prescription drug insurance)   Or the codine cough syrup if nothing else.  It is cheap.  Need a prescription, though
    • There also the 360 things by some companies.    
    • Hi all,   Any advice on purchasing a side image depthfinder? Worth it? Brand & model?   Thanks!   Ref  
    • Which size are you referring to? 
    • How much current do the battery pumps draw?
