Bait Casting for Muskellunge

As good a rod as any for muskellunge fishing, either casting or trolling, is the Henshall casting rod above described. A rod of this sort, if handled with average skill, will answer all requirements. It should weigh 8 or 9 ounces, and should be fairly stiff. Any sturdy bait-casting rod, not less than six feet in length steel rods are used to some extent will do. An 80 or 100-yard casting reel, E or F line, braided silk, the latter size preferably because it will work better in casting, and No. 4 and 6 trolling spoons, are suitable. All of the bass casting baits mentioned in previously, some of them made slightly larger and stronger, are used in casting and trolling for muskellunge. The muskellunge, in common with the pike and pickerel, has an innate fondness for green and white, and the fancy-back minnow, above described, is a very successful one. A light steel-wire leader should always be used. In this connection it should be said that gimp leaders, for any sort of fishing, are not to be trusted. They will smash without any previous warning at all visible to the angler. A strong gaff must also form a part of the outfit. A plan sometimes followed is to shoot the fish through the head with a .22 pistol or rifle. The advantage of this is that the fish is dead when he comes into the boat sometimes a very great advantage.
