Muskie (Musky)

The king of freshwater fish is very prevalent in the Ottawa area, giving first timers and seasoned pro’s an excellent shot at a trophy. Trolling oversized crankbaits in the 9 to 14-inch length can often yield big results. If casting is more your style, work 9 to 12-inch jerkbaits, jumbo topwaters and flashy bucktails around productive looking areas, making sure to complete a “figure-8” at the end of each retrieve.

A live or dead sucker worked just off bottom is a common technique in the Nation’s Capital, especially once the cold weather of fall hits. Circle hooks should be used when rigging these chunks of meat up.
