Musky Hunting

Get ready for Joe Murphy’s insights into next gen sucker fishing for muskie, where true musky hunting lies. 

Instead of chasing after your quarry, he’s mastered techniques of setting up the best positioning to anchor for maximum placement of bait, the best way to not only rig the suckers themselves but the terminal elements that allow

them to remain in place while not discouraging the musky from taking the bait due to tension from too much weight present, and being aware of how to best make sure the hooks plant in this very unique approach to the “fish of 10,000 casts”, dispelling that myth.


It’s not as easy or rudimentary as most would lead you to believe and requires both knowledge of how to identify the pathways to target and intercept your quarry, as well as the best ways to rig. 

This is true musky “hunting”.


Scouting your terrain, identifying the trails and paths, and then setting up your “stand” for optimal results.

One might say, after you learn these techniques for yourself and understand when, where, and how to employ them, it can be almost as easy as taking candy from a baby.

    Jigging for Muskie | Clear Skinny Water | Dwayne Hickey

    I've learned over the years that muskie fishing can be challenging when your dealing with clear, skinny water. At times you can see the fish lying along side a weed bed or if the water is super clear muskies can be spotted in ten feet of water. The upper half of the Collins river has plenty of weed beds, gravel bars and slick limestone bottoms. These are the times when sight fishing and the "cat & mouse game come in to play. I make sure to have hooks on the lures for this cat & mouse game. Polarized sunglasses are a must!

    Musky Lures | Bottom Contact | Tick, Tick, Boom

    When all else fails, and you know fish are present...make it known that you are, too. It was paramount in many of the teachings of Buck Perry to make bottom contact when fishing. Granted much of this was centered firmly around bass fishing, and while it isn’t entirely canon, many other species suspend far more than largemouth bass, and thus bottom bouncing might be a misappropriation of depth control.
