MUSKY: How To Set The Hook

Did you know most novice, and even some experienced Musky Hunters still don’t know the proper way to set the hook? Well, you are not alone. I didn’t learn myself until I lost a number of good sized Muskies.

Musky Mystique

Since the 1800’s there has been enough written about Musky fishing, you could fill a semi truck with it! Some is just hype or myth,  some straight out lies and a whole lot of good publications written by some of your better know Musky guides.  It’s  sometimes difficult to separate the truth from the B.S. Indeed the Musky is totally different than any other game fish on earth!  It is cunning, unpredictable in its habits and certainly the most difficult game fish to catch on our planet.  Can you […]
