Lure Patterning for Muskies

Pete Maina

There are big advantages to multiple anglers in the boat when muskie fishing. Never, ever, start a day with two or more anglers using the same presentation. It just doesn’t make a lick of sense, especially when we’re talking artificial lure use for esox species.

Regardless of previous experiences and/or yesterday’s successes, each day is a new day, and preferred lure patterns may (it’s very likely have) change/d. So, each angler starts the day with something different. The lure perceived to be (based on conditions) the most likely and most efficient (water coverage) should be first in line (front of boat) and prioritized as such. If the first choices don’t work, others are tried … the goal is to eventually have two anglers using similar presentations (lure pattern found) , but a day should never be started that way.
