Hi Rocketman, thanks for your quick feedback sorry for my bad english :-) I meant steelhead not bluesteel... shame on me :-) anyway, so for the tension of the clip you prefer monofil then braided line? I mean braided line should hook the muskie better because it stretches les for better hookset. What is your opinion? Thx and greets from Switzerland Rico

Hey Rico in Switzerland - Greetings Again! No problem - your English is way better than my German or French or Italian. Damn you guys over there are multi-lingual!!!!!! Both braided and mono work good. Stretch isn't much of an issue because the length of line from the release clip to the lure is usually pretty short, like 7-15 meters average. See - Rocketman knows metric ha ha ha!!!! I think the clips get a better grip on the mono. It's thicker and some of the braided lines are teflon coated and those are slippery. The steelhead over here in Michigan USA like planer boards just fine. Bagleys, Bomber or Rapala minnow lures in firetiger or flourescent orange work great. If you want the lure to go a little deeper stick a rubbercore sinker
on the line 2 meters ahead of the lure. Good Luck! Send pics of your big fish!

Hi Rocketman, thanks for this site! I fish for pike and bluesteel on the Lake of constance in Switzerland- the System with the Planerboards, I want to try also here. Our pikes only get to 25 pounds. :-( I would like to make the right setup here, thatfore I have following questions. 1. When/ How hooks the muskie? On the (hard) releaser on the planerline or right after the bit with a hard drag . (selfhooking)or with a weak drag you let him go and set the hook by a hit? THX for a short feedback. Rico

Hey Rico in Switzerland - Greetings! 25 pound pike aren't too bad. I wish I would catch one that size! And what the hell is a "bluesteel"? It sounds like a bad ass!!! On the planer boards, the release tension sets the hook. Make sure it's nice and tight so it takes a pretty good pull for the line to come out. The drag on the reel needs to be tight enough to keep the line from coming out by itself. Make a sharp turn and one side will wiplash and speed up. If the drag clicks at all it's too loose. Planer boards work great for all kinds of fishing over here and I bet they will be great over there too. You're gonna kick pike and bluesteel ass. Get a BIG One!!!!!!

Hi Rocketman: I have been muskie fishing since 1971, fishing mostly in Pennsylvania. I have read your website and fishing reports with great interest. Your site is absolutely the best that I have ever found and would like to complement you for establishing it. The reason that I feel that way is because your site provides the most comprehensive one-stop muskie fishing information available. Any angler that is fortunate enough ot find it will be well informed.

Rocketman, Just started my Esox Masquinongy addiction and I really need a fix. I have had several follows that made me dam near shit my pants. My lack of experience and technique has left me with my pecker in hand, no friggen fish. Any way I have been casting around Horse Island(Erie)with the afforementioned success. I'll get to my point, your article is the most comprehensive tool I have found , I ve since been to BP for the basic set up equipment you sugessted so thanks for the help Also My boat "Smelly-Essox" is a tracker the same size as yours, I hope to earn the respect you enjoy and appreciate the information on the web sight, it would be cool to hear from you on the water, I give you shout. Question: superlines vs. mono for trolling? would a liberal drag setting compensate for the 62 inchers(I whish)shock loading?

In my opinion the border is a hassle and it's faster to just drive the boat across. Don't land or anchor in Canada and you don't need to go through customs. If you do land there you can call 1-800-Canpass from the marina and usually they will clear you through Canadian customs over the phone.

Hi Rocketman. Interesting, cool, informative site. Well done. My question is: "Why do you continue to show pictures of vertical holds." All this does is continue to promote the idea that these holds are OK whereas they are not...much higher mortality rate! Also, those lip-lock tools should never be used...they can easily break fish-jaws once they start to thrash. Ron Edwards, Canadian Esox Association

Thanks for the input. When I post pics they are "as received". I guess I could rotate them 90 degrees - but then I would need to turn my monitor sideways to look at them. That's too much like work!!! However, I do agree that a horizontal hold is definitely better and hanging a fish from a "lip-lock tool" is not a good idea.

Hi Rocketman! This is your sibling, KE! Writing to tell you that this is a great website for people who love to catch the big ones, me included. I cherish the T3 you gave me. Not sure about the "babe factor," being I am your sister and all. . .but you sure do know your stuff, and it's great that you have created this venue to share your knowledge with others. So, keep up the good work, Rocketman, aka, KKB. Love, KKBE!

Glad to see that Lynn is back as the cover page MuskyBabe! I stole her pic and used it as my screen saver on my work computer. After several days of productivity disruption, due to my co-workers wanting to see the big fish (heh, heh, heh,,,), I was sadly instructed to remove it. Most of my co-workers were crushed. 1 year later, the company went belly-up, obviously because nobody wanted to show-up for work.

Hey Rocketman I just want to comment on the durability of your lures. I caught a 55" 48lb muskie that would not fit in the net. In and out of net with front and rear treble in net and middle treble in jaw. A lot of thrashing and jerking on lure but lure held on. Treble and eyelet were bent but they still held up under the torque of the monster. The details are as follows Nov. 8th 10:00 am ten ft. of water LSC at Belle River on a 9$bass Terminator. Since then I have purchased more of your lures and reccommended them to all of my muskie buddies. Take care and keep up the good work with your lures. All the best.

I have the opportunity to go after St. Clair Muskies later this week. The forecast sounds promising to me. Winds from the SW and there's only a slight chance of showers/thunderstorms. However, all this talk about a "heat wave" (30+ degrees over the next several days)has the guys in my boat concerned that it may put the muskies off. We are thinking about the hump area which I suspect has been pretty churned up over the last few days from W and N winds. I would appreciate any opinion from some of you more seasoned muskie hunters who know better how this hot weather affects the lake and the muskie bite. Do conditions look good for W, Th, Fri, Sat. or should we wait a week or so until the heat wave has passed or at least stabilized? Thanks.

Folks, Please let me know if I have lost all my marbles or not. Did I just read in the OMNR regs that we can use 2, yes TWO rods in Canada this year??? If so, it is about damn time. This was like steriods in baseball. Everyone cheated, but nobody admitted it. Well, now you don't have to worry about ending up in a Ontario jail on a Saturday night with the local drunk who got to rowdy at the Windsor ballet, errr strip club. Rocketman, you probably are still trying to pick yourself up from the news of multi rods.

I just wanted to thank you for the great website. I am an avid fisherman, but this will be the first summer I will be going for Musky. I won't waste your time by asking where to fish, but I just wanted to thank you for this website, it has been a great resource for learning how to fish Lake St. Clair for the monster musky. I assure you I have every intent of practicing catch and release, and am a strong believer in doing so.

Please Help, I am looking for a place to stay close to St. Clair Shores MI, I am going to be there July 19th for a family reunion and was going to bring the boat and stay a couple extra days and take my mom and dad out on St. Clair for their first time. Looking for a place either on the water with a boat slip or very close to it with "secure" parking for a boat. Also, can I fish both US and Canadian water if launching out of MI? Any special papers needed? I have fished St. Clair before but stayed on the Canada side near the Belle River. Any help would be appriciated, Thanks!!! Doug

reading your articals you mentioned several times water temp and 40 to sixty feet how do you determine this, if by sensor i would like to find one that works. and what type of graff do you use. thanks for your help Dr Jim
Dr Jim Thor <drthor$drthor.com>
norfolk, ne USA - Monday, November 19, 2007 at 18:17:33 (CST)
I use both Eagle and Humminbird fish finders. They have speed/temp sensors that mount on the transom and display surface temperature continuously right on the screen. If you're referring to 40-60' back, that's just an estimate. If you're referring to 40-60' down, that would be based on either the line counter on the downrigger or in the case of Lake St. Clair, wishful thinking.

Thanks for the suggestion. Downriggers are definitely very useful for certain situations. There are some references on my structure trolling page. I'll add more downrigger info when I get done with the lures that I am working on right now and have some time.

hey rocketman GREAT site i have been trying to learn all i can over the internet before i take my boat out for the first time after musky....and to be honest i didn't know much of anything about catching these monsters b-4 i found you site because i am only 17 but i have done alot of pike fishing in the U.P. and i found that there are a few things i have learned pike fishing that i could carry over to musky fishing but there is one thing i couldn't figure. out every thing i read said that musky spend most of their time in 15 feet of water or so. so when i clicked on the map link of L.S.C. and took a minute to look at it i couldn't find were there was water deeper than 5-10 feet on that map so were is it so deep is my question sorry for the ignorance but im new to this tyoe of fishing and this lake but if someone could answer that question or give me any other helpful tips they would be very apperecitated ill keep every one posted on my progress thanks anyone who can help and rocketman for the great site

The map on my links page is in meters. It beats the hell out of me why it's like that. Maybe it was originally from Canada or something. I just found it online and copied it. Don't be too hung up on the "musky spend most of their time in 15 feet of water or so" rule. They can be almost anywhere. We've had great days fishing in LSC in water as shallow as 6 feet and as deep as 25 feet. Watch your graph for baitfish and/or structure and/or big fish. Look for good color water, mudlines, jumping muskies or maybe a bunch of other muskie boats (or an especially cool red and silver Lund that says Terminator Muskie Lures on the side ha ha). Those are all way more important than some arbritary ideal depth.
the Rocketman

I have to thank you again Rocketman, I've finally got your structure trolling system down, and put my first 30 pounder 47"x24" in the boat out of Skegemog. Released her unharmed. She hit a perch depth raider 10ft back in the prop wash.

I was just wondering if anyone knew of any other Muskie tournaments in Lake St. Clair other than the Walt Sadowski Annual Memorial Muskie Tournament held out of Belle River on August 10, 11, and 12. I would appreciate any info. Thanks for the help, and good luck fishing

Rocketman, or to anyone willing to give up a little info. I have trolled salmon for the past 11 years and the cost of dragging the boat to Lake MIchigan is out of hand. This site is awesome to get me started to switch over and give it a good try for Muskie a little closer to home. My question is what part of the lake (US) should I try? I have fished LSC for walleye and perch mostly and recognize the names in some of the reports, but have never gone after Muskie. I would like to take my 11 year old out on Saturday and need a little help on where I should get started. Thanks, Tony

Walled Lake, MI USA - Tuesday, June 12, 2007 at 07:19:00 (CDT)
Right, unless you have a Canadian license you are going to have to stay in US waters. You might want to try around the edge of the deeper water in Anchor Bay or the NW corner of the main lake where it joins with Anchor Bay. Follow structure or weedgrowth edges in the 9 to 15 foot depth range. Or then again you could use a scientific approach (like the Rocketman) based on your understanding of the muskie food chain. Phytoplankton and some small forms of zooplankton come first. These microscopic plants and animals are the base of the food chain. Small fish, such as minnows, young sportfish and forage fish depend on this food for survival and growth so they tend to congregate where the phytoplankton and some small forms of zooplankton is. In turn, larger fish eat these smaller fish so they follow them around. Muskies eat the larger fish so they follow them around. The charter captains want to catch the muskies so they follow them around too. They are in charter boats with all kinds of advertising written on the sides. To be at the top of the food chain all you have to do is find one of those charter boats with all kinds of advertising written on the sides and follow IT around!
the Rocketman

Congrats on the fish in the pictures!! I see lots of vertically held fish in the pictures. Try to hold them horizontal folks. Holding them vertical with a boga may be good for your hand, but it's not good for the fish. Hold them horizontal and support that belly! Holding them vertical can cause the guts to detach and slide or separate/fracture the fishs "spine" at the back of the neck. These fish deserve our every effort for a safe release!!! Good luck and let them grow!

Whoa - that's the first I have heard of that rumor. It's 100% not true. I am still making Terminator™ Muskie Lures myself and for the forseeable future I have no intention of trying to sell my business. All I can think is that perhaps Normark bought the "Terminator" line of titanium bass spinnerbaits. Incidently, my own company is Esox Design, Inc., and Terminator™ Muskie Lures is a registered trademark of Esox Design, Inc., and I am not in any way affiliated with the people who make the spinnerbaits.

Hey Rocketman...have you heard anything about allowing 2 rods per person in Ontario waters of St. Clair for 07?

Hey Bill - I was counting on making my fortune airbrushing toenails but so far the nail salon biz hasn't had too many customers. Maybe it's the fact that Terminator™ jet fuel resistant ultra high gloss hardened urethane paint takes 48 hours to cure. Nah, that can't be it. It's probably just insufficient marketing. I am thinking that I just might need a few more trips to Scarlett's to try to drum up some business!
In the interim, I guess I am going to have to take a few more lure orders. I still have about six more batches to paint before I am all done with my present orders. Then I will open for business again for a short while. I'll put a notice on my main page a few days before I open back up. That should be sometime around the third week of May (hint hint). If you want some bad ass TX's for fall that will be your chance.

Hi! I am the Area Director for the state of Michigan for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). We are a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for research, education, depression and mental illness awareness and suicide prevention. Our national organization is based in New York City, but I started the Metro Detroit/Ann Arbor chapter of AFSP five years ago after my father took his own life. We would like to do a fishing tournament as a fundraiser and I am wondering if you could help me get something started. I'm sorry for using this page to reach you, but I just didn't see any other way to contact you on this web site. A good friend of mine is a member of your group and he suggested I contact you about the tournament. Can you get in touch with me about this? We are a growing organization doing great work in Michigan and across the country. Since so many people suffer from depression, and children are taking their own lives at earlier ages, we need to do more to create awareness and educate people about this national health crisis. Thank you for your time, and again, sorry for contacting you this way. Tammi Landry, Michigan Area Director, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) www.afsp.org, tlandry$afsp.org

Hmmmmm, a member of "my group" huh? I wonder who that might be... Well, sorry but I am way too busy painting lures and toenails right now, and besides I don't know diddly about organizing fishing tournaments. Any of you guys want to help Tammi out?

Cool! Send it by email to my esoxbiz address. I'll do my best to get it uploaded and posted ASAP (in between making lures and empties of course).
