I've been an avid reader of the forum since I purchased property on the NW corner of Pine Island. Thank you to the guys who provide me the fix while I toil away down here to pay for my passion. Projects have prevented me from really getting started Muskie fishing on the big V. I'm taking my son Muskie fishing Labor Day weekend, and was wondering what types of structure I should look for. Also, does anyone have a name for the bay I'm in on the Pine Island side just Southeast of St. Mary's Island?

I go by your bay all the time. I've been kind of interested in all the activity but haven't driven back in to check it out. I don't know that your bay has a name so I guess you're free to give it one! As far as musky fishing, keep it simple. They are rock oriented this time of year. The rocks are nicely marked either with bouys or aluminum from my skeg. Big bay is a good place to start. Use a large, high riding black and siver bucktail like a medium or large Eagle Tail and cast to rock piles and tapering points. Look for boulders especially and don't be afraid to cast into real shallow water,as long as it's near deep water. If you get tired of a bucktail, go with a Reef Hawg, Jackpot or Awaker. There are a million lures, half of them in my boat but if you stick with those you are most of the way there. I'm going to be out over Labor Day and if I get a chance, I'll stop in. Which cabin is yours?

There are a lot of fish relating to rocks this time of year however, don't overlook the grass. I caught 2 muskies in the weeds on Sunday, while everyone else was out fishing the rockpiles. smile.gif

Bucktails still catch more muskies than any other bait, so when in doubt, throw some hair. smile.gif

Good Luck!
