Well it looks like we all have the same muskie spot on the Grand :)

I've not caught one there but did get a follow and a swipe a few weeks back. I figure the area by the dam is a decent spot too but I haven't fished there much. I think I remember Wormdrowner mentioning that area. The area around Helen Hazen Wyman park should be ok too when the water level and clarity are right.

I finally bagged a couple of 'skis at West Branch this year after getting skunked last season so hopefully I'll be able to get a river muskie from this part of the state before too long. I've caught them out of rivers in Central and Southern Ohio but none here in the NE yet.

I talked to a guy who caught one last fall on a steelhead spoon. He was near the double bridge, just down from Rutherford's.

I remember an Ohio Fisherman article ,from years ago,that talked about muskie being hooked from the pier.

I've been fishing the lower river for smallies and trout for several years, but I haven't been lucky enough to even see a muskie.
