This weather is absolutely ideal for Muskie fishing. The water temps have not taken a significant nose dive yet. There seems to be a perfect time where the water is cool enough to force the fall feed, but not so cold that it slows metabolism. The fish are in that happy zone right now.

OhmygodWinstondoyouseethatherehecomesohmygodthat’sunbelievable … Unlike me, Winston kept his wits about him—which is to say, he didn’t fall apart like a cheap suit and yank his bug off the water before the smallie could crush it.
