  7. Anyone know of some good lures to use for muskies in 2 weeks? Temps are supposed to be in the mid 50's and me and my brother are going up to Webster and going ...more to be fishing mainly for bass, but if we use lures that could fish for bass, but could also catch muskie, what should we use? Thanks! πŸ‘

    1. Rich Pardy
      Not sure if they have changed from their winter hours yet, may have to give them a call to be safe.
    2. Jonah Switzer
      Awesome! Will do. Thanks for all the info! Are they open pretty early?
    3. Rich Pardy
      Jonah hit up Ye Olde Tackle Box bait shop in Webster before u go out and ask what they are biting on and where, they are usually pretty helpful.
    4. Jonah Switzer
      Exactly what I was thinking Rich. Might see ya on the water! 🎣
    5. jack stavely
      Husky jerk.replace trebles with red gamakatsu number 4 ewgs
    6. Rich Pardy
      They will be moving shallow pretty soon for the spawn so I would definitely try there. If you look at a map of the backwaters you will see a small lake called Kiser ...more lake down to the south that is attached, we ahve done well there and there is some deeper water back there. Also if you plan on hitting the main lake becareful going under the bridge becasue we barely made it and scraped the top of my windshield up pretty good. Heck I might even see you guys out there.
    7. Jonah Switzer
      Thanks guys! This is exactly the information I was looking for!
    8. Jonah Switzer
      Thanks Rich! Do you think the bass and Muskie would be in the Backwater area because that would probably be the warmer water this time of year? I read something ...more about that.
    9. Rich Pardy
      Jonah dont be afraid to throw those bass lures on Webster, I fish there all the time and it gets pounded with big muskie lures so they see those a lot but not to ...more many bass fisherman out there ever. I usually just use a blue and silver rattle trap but I put bigger hooks on it and do pretty good with it. Also have had luck with bluegill pattern lures and when they arent hitting during the day try at night cause we have had most of our luck there at night but thats also in the summer.
    10. Big swimbaits or large jerkbait.
    11. Swimbaits, 5-6", big bass or avg/lg Muskie won't pass that up usually if the water is warm enough. Water cold here, still fishing vertical for them
    12. john stimson
      spinners are good for both.

  9. Used the new Apex Grand from Ardent to make short work of another muskie this past Sunday; smaller one this weekend. Isn't spring coming soon...why is it so ...more damn cold!!! did some photo editing on the background with some cool icy trees i found Monday (yes that day i was skunked so i took pictures of nature haha)

    Muskellunge with a Ardent Apex Grand

    1. fished 16 hours this weekend, not one hit. saw them following the jig up and down on the fish finder though...very frustrating haha
    2. Your creating a team James Bond style. Lol
    3. Morris that is an actual nj picture i took for the background this time! Noah, the trick is I'm not casting! Vertical fishing😊. If you know where the musky ...more are roaming there (usually lurking mid water column over deeper water, somewhat near to drops points weed beds etc.) vert jig a big lure, tip it with gulp or sucker meat.
    4. Jonah Switzer
      What lure did you use? Me and my brother planning to go muskie fishing in two weeks and it may be really chilly, just wondering what lures we should use? Awesome ...more catch!
    5. That's amazing two fish of 10,000 casts within such a short amount of time!
    6. Marty Murray
      Yes, awesome pic and colors. I also don't see Waldo anywhere, so maybe next time you could fit him in?
    7. You forgot the majestic Jersey mountains..LOL
    8. Nothing added to the fish but I made the colors it had pop out a little
    9. Don't know if you added any color to that musky, but it is gorgeous! Awesome job on the background edit! Very nice!!!
    10. john stimson
      nice musky sorry to hear about that skunk, next time you will get them
    11. Rich Pardy
      Nice muskie and great job on the edit, I would never have been able to tell that was a different background
    12. Derek Herring
      You are on a big fish roll Chris!!
    13. Kenneth Olivo
      nice musky brah!
    14. the background is from another lake that i fished monday and got skunked but got some sweet pictures of the icy trees and today i'm snowed in so had a lot of ...more time to play with the photo editing...this is the outcome haha
    15. Nice one Chris!! Great pic too!
