    I have been using 8-10 in suckers,shiners,and chubs since the middle of October fishing for trophy Smallmouth bass. I have caught several 6#+ bass using big baits including this monster 6'15 that I am putting on the wall.

    I went fishing wednesday and me and my partner both caught small muskies and lost one in the twenty pound range when the hook came out. We saw one musky that I am sure was over 40 pounds but it was not interested in biting anything we had.While fishing for these musky we caught seven bass in the 4 pound range and 9 other decent ones. I cant wait to get one of these monsters I have been seeing and losing from time to time.

    Great fish! I have to get out this winter and try to get me a few of those Muskie. I like to use live suckers or bucktails tipped with a live chub or sucker. I do good with orange and black or the chart., green, and orange rainbow color. Good luck.

    Use big live bait and be patient. I use 20lb spiderwire stealth with 9 inch 30lb steel leaders and 3/0 or 4/0 Gamigatsu offset shank worm hooks. This is a goofy rig but I hook more fish with this than with other hooks. I am still catching several big smallmouth when fishing like this. Good Luck

    I prefer big 8-10 inch suckers and I let them roam free where I fish but you may need a sinker where you fish. I hope you catch one soon.

    are you still fishing the mcoy/parrott area? i've fished the new river for 20 years and have caught some huge smallies and big flatheads, but i just can't seem to catch a muskie. i've seen alot of them and even had people in my canoe catch them. i'll just keep trying. congrats on all the nice fish

    I am still fishing the Mcoy/Parrot area and still learning. I really think I have found where the fish are for the winter. PM me and we can hook up and get after them.
