    Just curious. I love to go after them from Mid September to the end of October. I've caught a few but we fish hard.

    I fish for them every chance I get. Hooked some giants at boat or seen them follow. Never landed one. My brother could catch one on a Popeye jig???

    I love to fish for them but since moving to KY I have been boat less. I have intentions of changing that this coming year. I have been fortunate to fish for muskies in PA,NJ,KY, and MN. If anyone has an open seat in their boat I am more than willing to split the cost of a day on the water to chase muskie. No one likes netting their own muskie!!

    If I can get some time you are welcome for a green river trip. Can’t fish for them at Dale.

    Muskie are a myth. I hate em so bad.
    But I'll be after them for the next month or so. Usually fish Green, but I'm gonna make the haul a couple times to Cave Run as well this fall. To my best count, I've fished for them 24 outings now, always at least half a day and we fish hard. I bet I got $3000 in muskie specific tackle. I still ain't even hooked one. Had several follows and have netted a couple small ones for others. Ol John Swister taught me all he could before he passed, so I'm not just stumbling around clueless, it just seems like it lol. Have caught some monster bass on them big azz lures, but nary a muskie. This is my year tho lol

    I've never fished for them, but I've caught a few on Green while bass fishing. Brought a 7-8 pounder in the boat on the hookset while flipping. I thought it was going to break everything.

    They are the only thing I fish for.

    Heres a mixture of creek and lake fish. I fish the creeks most of the time and is what I prefer. But fall on cave run can be magical.

    Water woofs is what donnie baker would call em lol. Dad went with his brother a few times lately and they boated a few keepers on the lake(cave run). He said he'd never seen so many ppl fishing for em as he went to some of our hotspots from back in the day when we fished for em. Ive lost the enthusiasm to chase the onry things but I liked fishing rivers better...LESS ppl, more wood/ drifts to fish and the ppl you do see aren't (or most) full of bs or "pros" haha. "Some"of the guides on the lake need a good 7'6" heavy action st.croix took upside their head for the foolish/ childish behavior and stunts they pull...:eek:

    Anyway, now is the time to boat them bigguns' even tho I liked the springtime action better. :cool:
