    for trolling i would say mine is a grandma in clown and bagley m/s in rainbow trout
     
  2. I have been musky fishing for about a year. I've caught 7, 4 all on the same grandma lure at leesville. Smaller, 5 inch i think, silver bottom and sides and black top. My other 3 at WB, one on a big rapala perch, another on the big all silver jointed rapala shad, and one on this jointed pikey creek chub, 4 get who makes it i'd check but its pouring out and my shed is 100 yards back. So those 4 are my favorite one with the Grandma on top for most fish but the creek chub owns my biggest (46 inch's)
     

  3. I haven't got into casting for them yet, the sound of the reel singing is the best, especially if u actually holding the pole and its not in the holder when trolling.
     
  4. A bulldog is my go to. I caught a 45 on one my first time casting for muskie. I tend to throw it now at least once every trip.

    Double Cowgirl, hands down.
     
  6. Jim, I like the DCG's too, but my go to bait is a Spinnerbait.

    What kind of spinnerbait though, that is the question!?! For anyone who is interested, I recently tried one of the new Bait Rigs Esox Cobra Spinnerbait that has two #10 colorado blades. Great looking bait. There's also another one called a Bou Bling that has double #10's. For casters who have not tried a double bladed bucktail or spinnerbait, you don't know what you're missing! (A fish or two I suspect!)
     
  8. Grim Reapers, usually a Willow/Colorado combination Chartreuse. I want to try those Bou Blings.
    Not to hijack, but what colors have worked for you on Cowgirls? I have thrown and trolled them but haven't hooked up yet.

    Shutup, I just got a few of the Muskie Killers, 5 inch I believe? Can't wait to start dragging them....

    I have several cowgirls, one all black, one orange blades with a black flash skirt, and one brass blades with a silver skirt.

    Yeah Jim, the Killers are certainly just that on St. Clair thats for sure. Anywhere else, I like to run the bigger ones and the King Jr. is just a tad larger anyway. The killers are considered the 5 1/2" and the King Jr. the 6". They both catch fish! Good luck with them.

    trolling: Sisson 41, Lightnin Shad, Monster Shad, Lil Ernie, and Wiley Muskie Killer

    casting: Buchertail 700 and ERC Hellhound
     
  13. I usually have to go to all of em but at some point in time I know the Lil Ernie is being put on 1 or 2 rods.
     
  14. At some point every trip I am running a Tuff Shad.
     
  15. Do you have any idea how to reach a Web site for the Tuff Shad manufacturer? The closest I can come is a site called Tripod which has no means of linking over to a Tuff Shad site.
    Thanks.
