Ive fly fished warm water for a looong time and in that time have only gotten 2 muskie. One was 6" and the other a little bigger...yes i mean inches...but i will say they took on a streamer much larger than themselves. I live near lake st clair and spend a considerable amount of time on it and have seen numerous muskie both caught and cruising. It is quite a predator to say the lease. Im still hoping to get a nice one on one day.
Ive heard of large muskie going after smallmouth and will even hang around a boat waiting for one to come in or get thrown back . When your the largest predator on the lake you have little to fear.
Next time try hooking a bluegill snak pack for it. lol
