The devil’s in the deets.

A couple muskies 44 and 50” respectively that have come into my boat during the past couple weeks that without trailer hooks and selectively chosen trailers for each would probably have never happened.

Ironically a bag of fish mixed between those marks and two beyond also avoided capture because of slight errors in how to choose and present proper trailers for each situation and presentation.

Big muskies, especially fish over the 48-50” mark, are notorious for “nipping” at nearly every presentation that exists during periods of relative inactivity, which as they become older and reach what musky anglers consider to be trophy sizes, becomes the bulk of their time.

Especially in systems where smaller fish saturate the same structure situations, or the number of ancillary predators present increases, the more subtle a touch it takes at times to circumvent fishing through smaller fish and target larger specimens specifically.

In one of our upcoming instructional videos, I spend considerable time discussing this and the use of specific spinnerbaits for these neutral/negative open water fish.

In fact, you get to see me even lose one of the larger fish I’ve hooked this season at the boat due to my own error in not implementing a proper trailer hook with a suitably chosen trailer that best complements the way the specific spinnerbait is being used (ex. Burning over weeds, slow rolled up a deep break dragging bottom, yo-yo’d, vertically jigged...) and the tendencies of each specific weight and blade combination as well.

Notice there wasn’t even a single mention of color.

But ironically, this is one of the few times I will pay attention to color, as far as blade color set to trailer with different water hues and tints, and I discuss that a length as well.

If you haven’t checked out the quickly expanding and diverse fresh and saltwater libraries of educational angling media In the Spread has to offer... ...it’s about to be a great time to do so. www.inthepread.com

Stay tuned for our new HQ site, both in standard and mobile format, coming VERY soon.
