What a beautiful lure! I've heard of cases where a giant Muskie (54"ers) will move into a bay and whip out all the Northerns and move on. Find such a bay and Muskie bring your 9' XH or XXH and your gym body and hang on tight.

Thank you all for the kind words! I'd prefer to quote you all but don't see the option to do so.
Regarding if it's a trolling bait, yes. I can't imagine casting one of these for very long. They are 17 1/2" overall including lip.

Ha, that does seem like a daunting task! But, thinking about it, would it be any more tiring than throwing and working a Mag Dawg, let alone a Pounder?

Definitely will work well up here - last year caught one high twenties pike with big chomp that healed over - and saw/netted one struggling on surface same size that basically just got free.

Chucki's is on point with the pike being scarce when a musky or two in area. I hit a few reliable cabbage patches that are used by one or other. If I catch a small pike or two I never see a musky - on the other hand if no pike appear when conditions are right, the anticipation heightens a fair bit. I don't necessarily think the pike leave, it is more that they hold tight I think.

If we catch a big pike (35+) in area (even in August/July when they in theory should be in colder water), then time to really work the area hard. Almost always a musky or two on the same pattern.
