Frustrated, discouraged, ready to throw in the towel... that's my season so far!
I can't count the number of hours I've spent on the lake this year (well over 100) , trolling/casting for Muskie and all I have to show for it is one 30" this year.
Admittedly, this is only my 2nd season of targeting just Muskie on West Branch... but I've tried trolling from shallow to deep water (4'-30') running 1' - 12' deep, along shorelines, over humps, following...
