Had a Musky follow to the boat last weekend that did the usual Musky crap. Follow, chase, sniff the fly, taste the water, then settle just below it. The clear water and the new GPS anchor on my trolling motor allowed me to stay with this fish though. I’ve always suspected that I could get these fish to eat a smaller offering but conditions were never perfect. This time it was prefect. My friend in the back of the boat didn’t think I had a snowballs chance in hell of getting an eat. I put a heavy weighted Crayfish about 1.5” long, right in from of her and jigged it until the fly disappeared. She managed to break free shortly after but it was still one of those eats that I won’t soon forget and when Musky fishing eats count!
