Ryan Kunder from Stratford, ON was on a recent walleye fishing trip at Birch Hill Camp on Lake Nosbonsing, ON. He was trolling a perch colored crankbait in 40′ of water & was heading into 12′ of water when he intercepted this beautiful musky! It ended up weighing 35 lb. and measured over 50″ long!! Not too bad for my first muskie and the largest fish he’d ever caught! Congratulations Ryan!
If you are planning on musky fishing this month trolling is a good way to locate cruising fish in open water, or you can try casting to “contact-points” such as deeper-water weedlines, points, bars, shoals, reefs and narrows. All these areas are good musky feeding areas during the month of June.
One of my favorite lures to cast is the Blue Fox Musky Buck in bright chartreuse blade, body and bucktail. You can experiment by reeling it in slower so you “slow-roll” the blade along the bottom, or ‘”burn-it-in-fast” over deeper-water weeds and shallower structure around the deeper-water breaks.
