    I use bucktails 75% of the time, the rest is either jerks or spoons. I am planning on trying bulldogs real soon though. Also have caught several off 12 inch chubs off my uncles dock.

    I have not fished pleasant creek for musky yet but have fished them in Wisconsin for years. I saw those tourney results and have been excited to get out there and give it a shot (honestly it never even occured to me that there was decent musky fishing in Iowa since I moved down here.) Are there any other lakes within a reasonable distance of Cedar Rapids that have decent size musky and pike?

    I had always been hesitant on the idea of replica mounting but I just had one done by timberline taxidermy in solon and was very impressed with how it came out. From now on I will be letting any trophy sized fish swim unless I didnt think the fish would survive or if I thought it was a state record and was keeping it to get the record verified.

    In northern WI we used to get them from shore with 8-14 inch chubs. If we were in the yard or on the deck we always had a rod on the dock with the chubs goin. Usually got a few every summer that way.

    I moved here from Minnesota and have had a cabin in Wisconsin all my life and one in way northern Minnesota for a good chunk of it. It blew my mind when I moved here that there is no fishing season. As for limits a 15 inch minimum is great, but slot limits suck. I would rather see a 2 or 3 fish limit than slots. As for inforcement, there is a heck of a lot more inforcement here than on any lake I have fished in MN or WI except for the most touristy ones.

    your twist is to fast for the 55 grain rounds. those are made for a 1 in 12 but perform well in most 1 in 9, reel iffy in a 1 in 8. try some 65-75 grain rounds and see if you shoot better.
    properly stabalised wwb are capable of 1.5 -2 inch groups at 100 yards out of most ars

    I grew up on blueberry lake and our house was about a mile and a half from the nearest landing onto the the chip so I have fished it a lot. While it has good musky it is not the highest density musky lake around by a long shot. The biggest one we pulled out of there was a 46 inch. That one was kind of funny my dad hooked a small mouth that was about a 12 incher and was bringing it in and about 10 feet from the boat the musky took it. Half an hour later we had it in the boat.
    There is great bass fishing there and decent Walleye. I’ll be in that area this weekend going after Crappie and then on to my musky spots once I have food for the weekend. I talked to my uncle who still lives there the other day and the crappie bite is peaking right now, 3 guys had 137 caught in 4 hours. Kept 20 all over 12 inch.
    Send me a PM and il give you my cell number and try to give you some spots for your trip.

    I just got a guide series gsx titanium 6’6″ medium light with a stratic. I have never been a huge fan of gander mountain rods but their higher end ones this year are amazing rods for the money. I also just got the gsx tournament baitcasting rod and love both of them.
