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.

    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.
