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.

As you motor past an object, you take a gander and see if anything is around. If so, you cast a few times and boom, hooked up. Yes and no.

    Winter Bass Fishing | Lake Guntersville

    Starting at the deepest end is a good way to get the boat position correct the first time. Your job is to thoroughly work the area until you are sure you have covered it completely. Working from the deepest part of the point to the top allows you to be precise and cover all the edges and drops around the point. In most cases, the bass will hold at the bottom of it.
