Lip Gripping Your Catch

There is an emerging use of "Lip Grip" landing tools among some Musky anglers. The basic premise is to use these mechanical mechanisms rather than traditional netting and thereby preventing the inevitable embrangling of net, lure and musky.

Certainly, if you can safely land a musky so as to prevent harm to fish and angler, the use of these lip grip tools is a desirable alternative...More

Muskie Length/Weight Chart

As concerned Muskie anglers, we are very anxious to get our Muskie catch back in the water as soon as possible. In reality, the best thing to do is never remove the Muskie from the water, but then the all important photograph would be hard to get. Typically, we have time to get a "GOOD" measurement and snap a couple of photos and then it is back in the water for Mr. Muskie. With this table, you can get a pretty close estimate of the weight of your Muskie from the length measurement...More

Re-shafting LeLure Globes

For years, Frenchy LeMay custom made his own brand of lures. In the mid-90s, Frenchy and a few of his fishing friends began to market production runs of his lure designs under the brand name LeLure.

After Frenchy's death, the production of the lures was outsourced to China. Because the LeLure company did not have the manpower or production resources to oversee the production of their lures in China, it was forced to rely upon the Chinese quality control...More

On 3/14/10 an article ran in Parade Magazine extolling the stamina of a bass tournament winner. The article was authored by someone named Harlan Coben.

Don't Lose Reel Perspective

In this modern Musky era, it is easy to lose perspective regarding the extent of advancements in today’s tackle and techniques over the tackle and techniques of the past. At the top of the list are the enhancements to modern Musky reels...More

Making Sure Your Drag Works

Probably the most important tool of Musky fishing is your reel and the most important function of your reel is the drag system. When you are in the heat of a confrontation with a Musky, you must be able to “play” the fish. That means that you must be able to give it line to prevent straightening a hook and keep pressure on the Musky to prevent it from throwing a hook. Your reel’s drag system is an indispensible element to successfully boating a Musky...More

Re-shafting Your Bucktail

Over the course of a Muskie season, our lures take one heck of a beating. They are stepped upon, they have heavy objects set upon them; not to mention being abused by our Muskie friend. Probably, among the most used lure in a tackle box is the bucktail. In this article we will go through the steps required to disassemble, re-hook, re-shaft and re-assemble a bucktail...More

The Top Guides On The Chippewa Flowage

Every year, vacationers return to the Chippewa Flowage in search of Blue Gill, Crappie, Walleye and, of course, Musky. In many instances, these vacationing anglers are up for a week, sometimes two, and then there are the guys up for two or three days. Hitting the water without some insight into the fish patterns and the most productive lures, can result in a lack luster angling outing…That is why it is a good idea to get a guide for at least half a day...More
