  1. Thats one of my home lakes in the spring. Been fishing it for years. It has had some nice heavy muskies in it, but they can be pretty stingy sometimes. I heard they sprayed/killed all the weeds this summer. PA makes some bad management decisions. With the best muskie hatchery in the state on the lake, it could be way better.

  2. St croixs are nice. I own some, but they are usually a little more expensive. All muskie stuff is expensive, but here are a couple good choices that may be a little more economical. St Croix may have some lower cost options too. Probably like an 8 or 8.5' MH for you http://www.biggametackleco.com/muskie-rods.html https://tackleindustries.com/shop/musky_pike_bass_walleye_crappie_fishing_rods/musky_pike_fishing_rods/musky_pike_rods/ Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  9. Oh man...go to a niagara musky association meeting. Those guys can get you on track for there. Trolling cranks or jigging tubes. Thats a delicate, natural fishery. Those guys are rightfully protective of the water and fishery. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  12. Never used live bait for muskies. Not many people do around here. If you do, use a quick strike rig and dont let them swallow it. Id just stick with artificials though. We have 8 and lost 2 so far today. Bakers and Boss Shads. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  14. You may be right. I thought when I looked yesterday the PFBC had walleye stocking numbers from 2000-2016 for Cow. As I look again this morning under Tioga County, they only had walleye stocking number since 2011. Maybe they didn't stock anything from 2000-2011. If that lake touches another county beside Tioga, I may be missing some walleye stockings. Here's what they have for Cow in Tioga county as far as # of walleye fingerlings stocked: 2011 Walleye Fingerling 11,000 2013 Walleye Fingerling 82,000 2014 Walleye Fingerling 22,000 2015 Walleye Fingerling 22,000
  15. Thats funny...typical old walleye guy attitude. "The muskies are eating all my walleye." I wonder how many walleye that guy kept and ate vs how many he released. The decline is probably due to other factors. Many good walleye fisheries are also good muskie fisheries, so the fish exist together fine. I looked up stocking reports and they only go as far back as 2000. Both muskies and walleye have been stocked in Cowenesque Lake at least since that time. I guess the walleye fishing went to hell there more than 17 years ago. Nice tigers bobcat. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
