.Hugo.I have absolutte musky fever right now so im not even bass fishing unless I bring out my friends that dont fish much, but even now they want to musky fish lol. It also doesnt help that the tiger musky lake is literally under 5 minutes from my place. I dont suppose anyone in here wants to talk musky techniques haha
Ive never tried ned rigging, maybe ill give it a go here soon since it feels like my rotator cuff is fucked from hucking giant baits. I can really see that working well on deep weedlines in clear pressured lakes. I doubt anyone is throwing that.
For swimbaits I have a 7'11" okuma guide select or something along those lines with a shimano cardiff 401a that doubles as my second musky reel. Havent thrown any swimmers at bass yet but ive kinda been waiting till they are suspended out deep then im gonna throw some 6" hudds at em. Actually I lied ive caught some bass prespawn on a 6" uncle manny wake bait. Worked really well over the thick stuff. Stuck a 3.5 lber on my third cast with it. Also caught a couple northern on my behemoth of a glide bait ive been using for musky
Nice! I've never fished for musky or pike specifically and wouldn't know the first thing about it aside from trawling with buck tails unfortunately. I'd love to but it's just not really doable here afaik. I can't even imagine hoisting a 52" fish haha
Ned rigs are strangely effective. It's weird how well they work.
Sick rig man, that's a kickass setup! Love the big wheel reels. I'm using a Dobyns Champion 705cb glass and a Curado I currently. A little short for swimbaits and glides but it's also my crank and jerkbait rod too so it works.
I like throwing hudds and such, but I have to admit that glide baits are my new favorite thing. As sketchy as it can be to send open hooks into the dark & deep, they just slay it. That wide slither just draws strikes and is crazy fun to watch. My Slide Swimmer is my fave but the iSlide and the S-Song aren't far behind. I can't stop.
Also I just remembered- do you still have that Giron I was supposed to buy from you? I forgot all about that!
