We are entering one of my favorite times of the musky fishing season, Late Summer/Early Fall. As the water begins to cool from summer peak the muskies definitely get more active and begin to move shallow. This is a time for focusing shallow water areas to find active musky. Lots of presentations will work at this time of the season. I generally focus on blade baits with Cowgirls and JR. Cowgirls getting lots of action. Topwater baits can also be a great option at this time of year. Throwing Shallow Mag Bulldawgs can also be a very effective presentation and draw some amazing strikes as well. Focus on large shoreline flats and try both weeds and rocks to determine a preference. It can be a great time for lots of action so get on the water and see for yourself. Good Luck on the water, Steve Genson

Bulldawgs and other soft plastic baits are a very popular and productive bait all season but even more so in the fall. The slow presentation can be just the thing to trigger that stubborn musky. Nobody in North America has more Custom Dawgs than us.
The Bondy Royal Orba is quickly becoming an amazing bait for fall fishing across the musky range. From Lake Saint Clair to Northern Wi it flat out catches fish. Many confuse this with a jig but it is worked in the same manner most soft plastic baits are presented. It can also be a deadly bait on a straight retrieve. Click here to see the video.
The Baby Beaver and Baby Beaver XL have put the musky population on notice the last few years. It’s been an amazing spring and fall bait with many giants being taken on it. Straight retrieve it or give it a jerk and it catches fish. We have 6 exclusive colors available on our website. Click here to see the video.
