Default First time muskie / pike fishing - need advice

So I'm going to be heading to Busse Woods this weekend to fish for muskie/ pike. I got my bucktails, I got my swimbaits and paddle tails. I got a 9' spinning setup with 25lb mono and a 50lb flouro leader.

What am I missing? I'm going to be fishing from shore. Anything I should know? Any spots someone might be able to point me to?

Don't forget a good set of release tools (long nose pliers, hook cutters). Never fished Busse, but bucktails and big bass style swim jigs are good spring baits in general. Good luck, let us know how you do!
