How bout a little info for a new member? I am going to get the boat out of winter storage next month, is this a good time to begin the mushy search or am I to early. ??? I will be fishing Marsh Creek, and Kaercher Creek. I will be targeting the backs of coves where creeks enter, hopefully the water will begin to warm there sooner. Any of you who know Marsh Creek, I am looking at the back of Carpenter's Cove below the pool area, and the upper end of Park Cove by the ranger station. Any info will be helpful.

AZ - real Muskie fisherman don't winterize.
Seriously, this is a great time of the year for Muskie fishing. Just find an open lake or a river that's not ridiculously high and have at it. I've seen several 3 fish days in February, one on my own boat!

wetflyguy, sounds like the muskies are in there gorging on suckers, you'll get em next time. Can't wait to see the pics! [&]] When's the next front moving through, that should get the muskies snapping. One thing I always hear at seminars is change in barometer is crutial, when pressure is going up or down, that's when you want to have a bait near a musky and they'll EAT IT.

Man! You're really hung up on these old posts, aren't you?!?! I'm telling ya, stick with the current chant material! Then build a bridge and "get over it!" ;D
As for when to begin, I have all of my lures in the house and will spend many nights sharpening hooks. Also cleaning and lubing reels. It's never too early to start that. Plus the fact as soon as there's open water, it's time to hunt!
