Targeting Fall Musky With Saltwater Crankbaits

Crankbaits are an effective way to trigger musky during the fall months. Feeding occurs right through ice up, and as Ryan DeChaine demonstrates, matching big plugs to the forage can really produce. This video delves a bit into fall musky location on northern natural lakes and takes a look at what we consider "finesse" musky equipment. Basically, bass rods paired with 300 size reels, and 65-pound braid for comfortable all-day casting. Although musky are suckers for super-sized baits, small to mid-sized lures like the Williamson Speed Pro Deep can work equally well at times while enhancing your casting endurance.
