It's not over untill we say it is........

Finding the fish is not terribly difficult...simply take the areas that were holding fish earlier this season and move to the first significant deep edge near by... deep weed edges are generally the best edge right now. Look for concentrations of bait fish on your sonar to identify which deep edges hold the most promise and start fishing. Big baits mean big fish and lately my boat partners and I have been digging through my Justencase tackle box for the biggest baits we can find. Large muskies can easily eat fish in the 4-5-6lb range and throwing or trolling the largest baits that you can deal with can up your odds considerably.
And actually it is over when the DNR says it is.......Nov 31st is the close of Muskies season so get some big fish action now while you still can, the lakes are uncrowded and the fish still have to eat.
As a friend of mine says, "In January you will wish you could have bottled a day like today and open up that bottle and take a sip." because musky fishing will not be on the menu in January.
