Favorite musky lures for the 'croix'


Croix

Recommended Posts

just curious as to what everyone uses on the 'croix' and also what is this high water doing to the skies? any guesses?

Personally i love a walleye suick. Got my biggest musky (48 inches) of my life on a walleye suick.

I've only fished it a couple times, but topwater WTD's and big plastics have moved fish for me. Still don't have a good pattern/plan out there though.

anybody know a general area that I might start on out there? Not looking for specifics, just an idea to get started

Lots of water to cover on the river....if you can find weeds, current breaks, that's a good start.

Hey bass whacker...Giving away spots on a public forum? Maybe not the best idea, unless you like company. I'm just sayin. wink

It was nice of you to share Bass Whacker, I do the same.

I dont target the ski so Stratman you wont have to worry about me. Lived on the river for 40 years but I sure will give those grassy areas and current breaks a wide birth wouldnt want to enfringe on that territory

I don't target them but I have picked up my share accidentally. They were usually related to a point and shallow water. Put in where ever you choose and start on the points. Every time I fish a certain necked down area with a lot of weeds I see a couple boats tossing broom sticks around. Up until ~5 years ago I had never seen a single muskie guy anywhere on the Croix. I think the word got out on the ski's

Good luck,

Ferny.

Go Blue.. I know that FM is a great place to share tips, tactics, stories and advice, I just try to stay away from giving out locations... ya know. Especially with muskies on the river, not a ton of spots, but the ones that are good seem to always hold fish year after year. And literally anywhere from Prescott to Taylors falls (and above) hold muskies. Just not alot of them. Get out there and cast. Didn't mean to ruffle any feathers...

Croixflats, since you have lived on the river for 40 years, maybe you want to share on here all your best walleye spots? cool

i could care less i think everyone should go out and catch a couple muskies in thier life but trust me people arent getting my bass spots and id give away more spots but i cant give directions its tough when i go by trees and rocks on the shore sorry folks i cant afford a gps or working electronics for that matter stupid school loans.

I think people gaurd thier spots to close anyway save some of the best spots for your self but i mean come on help people out its not the end of the word if someone fishes the same area as you its not like they are going to use the exact same bait or work it in the exact same way.

Hey goblue when are you going to try and get out you should watch for me im in a old black blue fin spectra with a merc on it i'm out 4 or 5 days a week normally if im out i will be somewere between afton and prescot normally and imusually playing around with a bright orange rod "the carrot stick" if im out stop by and say hi I can show ya around to a couple other spots.
