HUNT MONSTER MUSKIES IN THE DARK
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.
