HUNT MON­STER MUSKIES IN THE DARK

Field and Stream - - F&S -

Come sum­mer, a lot of muskies feed only at night, so if you want to crank in your first 50-inch fish, break out the head­lamp. Bait se­lec­tion for night fish­ing is key. Lures with a steady, straight re­trieve make it more dif­fi­cult for the fish to miss in the dark. Your two go-to baits should be big: dou­ble 10 bladed buck­tails and prop­style top­wa­ters are both proven lure styles. Tar­get the shal­lows, work­ing both buck­tails and top­wa­ters over the weed tops. No need to burn baits at night. A slow, even re­trieve trig­gers the best re­sults.
