Top 5 Spring Muskie Lures

There is no better time to catch muskie in numbers than the spring and early summer. Temperatures above and below the water surface are still relatively cool and muskie have finished their spawning. During this time they are likely still found grouped in shallow water or slowly moving toward deeper water. By concentrating efforts in fairly shallow water, we have been able to catch several great fish over the years. Here are a few of our favourite spring time muskie lures.

5. Believer by Drifter Tackle

To be honest, I wasn’t a believer in this lure until this year. Sure I’d heard the stories of this world famous lure, but it had never caught me a fish. In fairness, I didn’t use it very often because I simply didn’t like the look of it. It’s body looks like a deranged combination of a platypus and a manatee. After boating four nice muskie with the Believer during the first two muskie trips of the year, it has earned a permanent spot in my muskie tackle box.

The Believer is ideal for trolling and casting and is available in several colours and sizes up to 13 inches.

Hello New Jersey!

So its been almost a week since I arrived in the Garden State and I have yet to go fishing. I’m actually here in business, but past business trips have always been filled with fishing opportunities and this one is no different. I’m currently attending software training in Parsippany, which does have a few lakes nearby, but none are known for their fishing. Tomorrow morning I’ll be heading out beyond Parsippany with one of my fellow Muskies Inc members and we’ll be chasing the fish of ten thousand casts. Luckily my fishing partners knows the water here and we should be able to find some decent fish.

It’s been 10 days since I last fished, which is the longest span since April. I have every intention of making up for lost time! From what I’ve heard glide baits are producing – luckily I have a few with me!
