Stick in Mud Posted September 14, 2012 Share Posted September 14, 2012 Hello all, First time poster in this forum. Each autumn I spend a lot of time throwing large-ish crankbaits (shad raps, bomber long a's, husky jerks, etc.) for walleyes in the Mississippi River around the St Cloud/Sartell/Clearwater/Royalton area. Each year, I catch a muskie or two on accident--or I'll lose one because it'll spool me, or one will bite me off (maybe it's a big pike). Now, I've seen y'all's lures at the fishing stores, and I know they're super expensive. I don't really want to fill up a tackle box (at this point, anyways) with a bunch of lures that I'll only throw for a few weeks out of the year (I've been out muskie fishing a few times on various lakes, and it never really was my thing). I do have a rod/reel combo that will handle a muskie lure and a muskie, too, but I don't know what lure to buy for autumnal evenings chasing 'skis on the Miss (while I'm chasing REAL fish! ). So, the question: If you only had one lure for fishing a shallow-ish river from shore, which one would you buy? Carmike Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
