Fishing Pressured Muskies

with Jeremy Smith

Muskies are unquestionably one of the top bucket list gamefish in North America. Interestingly, even on good water at the right time, musky can be a tough fish to catch!

What’s the key to musky success? It’s simple.

Spend a lot of time casting on good spots. Be on those spots during the right weather and moon conditions. And a little luck isn’t bad either.

In normal years many hardcore musky anglers venture into Canada to hunt these elusive beasts in the pristine waters of Northwest Ontario on lakes like Eagle, Lake of the Woods, Lac Seul, and Cedar.

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic this last year, the border was closed to the dismay of many musky commandoes.

In turn, US musky waters experienced more fishing pressure than ever. Lakes like Lake Vermilion, Leech Lake, Green Bay, and Lake St Clair were inundated with anglers who would normally be in Canada.

Jeremy Smith and Jake Wallace break down the state of musky fishing today, in light of all the heavy pressure on our lakes.
