Casting for Muskellunge, Pike and Pickerel

For either muskellunge, pike, or pickerel—it seems a little improper to thus class the pickerel, or, for that matter, the pike, with the muskellunge, but the fact remains that they are "birds" of the same feather— still-fishing is little done by those who understand the game. It is far better to fish exclusively by casting or trolling. The boat, when trolling, should be worked so that the bait, either artificial or natural, plays along from three to six or eight feet outside the line of weeds or rushes, and it is not necessary that the spoon or minnow be fished at any considerable depth; surface or near-surface fishing is the rule with any of these fish as they will all rise freely on seeing the bait.

When casting, the boat should travel parallel with the margin of the weed beds, from forty to eighty feet away—it depends somewhat upon the skill of the caster and the method of casting—and the bait should be cast in so as to fall at the proper distance from the weeds, taking pains not to cast so far in as to become fouled in the weeds or so far away from them as to render it problematical whether the fish will see the bait. In either case as soon as a fish is hooked the boatman should make it a point to keep the boat in deep water; the fish should always be played away from the weeds.
