Default Heidecke muskies

Anyone fishing Heidecke specifically targeting muskies? Seems like many are caught by "accident" there.

I have fished it, targeting musky, with musky gear several times and never raised a fish. Everyone I've ever talked to who has thrown musky baits out there, seems to mostly be out washing lures.

Most musky caught out there are on x-raps and other cranks, or jigs/soft plastics. I think there is so much small forage in the lake, that the downsized baits are just "matching the hatch"

Strange....but I think it's certainly the size of forage but also that there is SO much of it. These muskies don't have to chase down a large bait for a big meal because they don't have to!

good evening fellas

i am a snager and yes i do to burnham harbor. but there is a diffrence between snagging aqnd spoting . im from the south side *jackson park* and up there we are broken into groups eaven though we all snag. but we all form a group called the strokers club.the groups that we broken into are

strokers - the ones that just have love for it and just loike being out there no matter what.

spot team- is what i belong to and im A CEO , WHAT WE DO IS JUST STAND THERE WITH LIGHT HOOKS AND SALMON/STEALHEAD RODS and polorized glasses and AND PICK THE FISH OUT . WE LOOK AT IT AS A SPORT CAUSE EVERYONE CANT DO IT and i bet $500.00 that i will out loure fise any one of yall during the salmon run you pick the date,time,place.. . WE RESPECT EVERYONE WE LOYAL TO FISHING AND WE WILL GIVE EGGS AWAY. I ACTUALLY UN GAVE MOST OF EVERYBODY AT BURNHAM SPAWN FREE. thoes of you all that fishing for them that be by the pipe see us walk up know who we are . we speak have conversation, and cant no one say we actually stayed rite there and messed up yo all fishing..

poachers- who just dont give a fck doing things illeagaly no liences sdtamps or nothing . they the ones that will mess things up for othere

thank yo all for yall time enjoy
Are U gonna use your snagging hooks for those muskies??????????? ..
