Ive been putting some time in the past month or 2 trying to catch a musky from the schuylkill in philly, from the tidal and nontidal alike... almost got my first on the susky (warmwater discharge) in mid january, but it cut through my line (no leader, wasnt targeting skis), and that gave me the bug bad. So a question for the experienced musky anglers, what kind of baits do you use this time of year/how do you work them? Ive been casting pikies in assorted colors along current edges in water from 5'-15' (schuylkill river), working them slowly. Never caught a musky so I dont really have any confidence in what Im doing... any tips? I have no doubt that I will catch one this year with the amount of time Ive been putting in, some advice would be awesome though. thanks for reading.

Be positive, i like big spinnerbaits myself. try slow rolling, drag the the rod fast to the right about 3ft then stop then start reeling again then repeat on the next cast but then go left side. sometimes burn then stop, then reg reel. if nothing happens atleast you may get a nice burn!!ha ha good luck brother ;D !!
thanks for the encouragement! Fished today for a couple hours, with nothing to show (which is what Ive come to expect). Ive seen a lot of muskies while fishing, not while fishing for them, but at random times.... usually around the full moon. Ill keep casting, and keep you guys updated if this blind squirrel happens to find a nut 🙂
