Big Musky | Tennessee's Best Guide | In The Spread

Aight guys.


I have boated more fish all in excess of 50” up to 53” in the past 2 years between March and the end of May than any other Tennessee Musky Guide. I say that just to let you know if you want to catch big musky, I am your guy. The numbers speak for themselves.


We get some killer topwater action in early May and consistent stuff through the spawn all the way into post spawn, with mid to late April through northern season opener being some prime time musky fishing. These are just some pics I had on hand in the favorites folder.


If you wanna step up in the batter’s box of my Esox Magnum and take a swing for the 50” fence down south, gimme a call at 931-261-2483. I’m already booked a healthy chunk of April and about half of May as is, half of which are repeat offenders, because that time frame friggin’ rules. 


I mean, if you’re gonna fish down in this neck of the woods, might as well fish with the guy that basically everyone else around here has followed around the past 5-6 years.


Sorry, not sorry.

    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.
