Thanks much to Ed Carlson for giving me the tip on the Salmo Slider as a muskie bait- actually he not only gave me the tip, he gave me the lure! For those who don't know, the Slider is a lot like the Fatso, but it's thinner and has more eratic side to side action. I had a follow on the third cast out of the box and tagged a very acrobatic 40 inch sklunge with it today.
Thanks Ed.

They are a great lure and will find it's way into many a piggy hunters tackle box's.

Remember Scoot..they work on Sumo Kitty's too.


For those who have not seen them yet, here ya go.


Color Chart for Salmo Slider line 2003

Salmo is known for there quality, realism, and attention to detail on the baits they produce.

Another very good Muskie bait is the Salmo Pike 16 Shallow Runner.

I see Cabela's has tried to make a lookalike version of a few of Salmo's baits. They are not even close to the quality of the Salmo plug...not even close!

I just re-read my post here and wanted to clear up a little confusion-
Fatso's cousin in the Salmo Slider, not Ed Carlson! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Pike very active with 6-12 feet running crank baits ... also Bass !!   Been using various crank runners some off deeper weed lines 12-15 feet.    Fun trolling and having to stop because the rod was smacked hard 😃     Cret

      Been awhile since I posted, busy summer but finally got the kayak back out on the Mississippi to chase after them fall smallies. The bite was really good and managed a new personal best at 21"! Bait of choice is my wacky worm, they never can resist! I'll be chasing these till ice is on the lakes. Best fishing is right around the corner, goodluck everyone!    Video:  https://youtu.be/PJOZITB0ol0
