Best Times To Fish

The most popular time to fish for musky is from early January through the end of July. During the month of January musky can be found roaming shoals and flats, preparing for their prespawn patterns in March and April.

March and April can present anglers with some of the most aggressive fish being caught on topwater and or subsurface streamers/baits.

May through July, musky are still feeding regularly and can be found in deeper channels and will feed on slower moving baits and big streamers.
