Proper Rod Tactics for Muskellunge and Pike

As both muskellunge and pike are very large fish it is necessary to use a gaff in landing them. If the writer is not greatly mistaken he has more than once seen the common pickerel, fairly large as these fish run on the average, leap on a practically slack line, although tactics of this sort are not ordinarily ascribed to this fish. It is fairly well known that the muskellunge is a "jumper from Jumperville." Sportsmen are apt to disagree as to the proper rod move to make when a game fish takes the air. The preponderance of experience and advice suggests the advisability of slightly lowering the rod tip. Usually, unless the angler is very cool and also a rapid thinker with a very swift reaction from the brain to hand, the fish, salmon, black bass, or musky as the case may be, is back in the water before the angler makes any counter play at all. However, it is always best to ease a leaping fish back into the water by slightly lowering the tip. When a fish leaps far away from the boat, lowering the tip is perfectly useless as there is always a long belly in the line and the movement of the rod does not carry through.
