I wanted to ask the experts, I am thinking about a new Pike/Muskie combo and wanted to ask your thoughts, see if anyone uses the following.
But first a little information: I Muskie fish between 5-10 times a year, the majority of which is on Shabbona, the bulk of my catches are from Leech lake. On Leech, we catch pike all day between 5-10 lbs. (Truly the majority of my catches on Leech are Pike.)
When fishing, I mainly cast spoons (on Leech) and cast misc baits (Like Super Shad wraps) on Shab. ( And just to add, when trolling I use a St Croix Muskie rod.)
With all that said what do you think of this combo? I was thinking of the 6:4:1 gear ratio, 7' MH.
