Easy: two bucktails, two super topraiders, two straight shallowraiders with two jointed, two straight depthraiders with two jointed, Two bigfoot depthraiders and two bigfoot shallowraiders. You could follow the same theory with any brand(s) of baits you like, but this will let you fish different structure and water types all year long with a minimal amount of tackle. This is a couple of baits over your 15 bait limit, but I had to throw in the bigfoots for chasing the October beasties. If you fish a lot of heavy weeds, I'd throw in a couple safety pin spinners as well. cool

If your only going to have a couple of colors, I'd go with one natural pattern like perch or cisco. Look on the DNR servey to find out what the predomanant forage is and then my advice would be to go with that color. Then one for darker conditions(dirty water, cloud cover etc.) Something like a white/orange combo, chartruese, Firetiger or the like. I use the same method as above for my own musky box, except instead of two colors it's more like five or six and with a few different manufacturers baits. Start small and gradually work your way up as you feel you need to.

Suicks, Rad Dogs spinnerbaits, and Northland muskie-bucktail spinnerbait are also great. There are many great reed-filled spots that these bait will produce fish in. Enjoy your time up there, it's one of the greatest places on earth!

Suicks........I totally forgot about jerkbaits. Musky fishing is such a dangerously expensive game. laugh

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
