Great Lakes/Niagara River Musky Season

Recommended Posts

Well here we are,tonight at midnight is the Great Lakes Waters Muskie Opener!

We have next to no bait fish present in the Buffalo Harbor and I marked no big hooks while walleye fishing to 1 am the other night inside the walls.So I will spend most of my time in open water outside the walls going over reefs & humps of 25 ft to 28 ft out in 30 ft + water!

The river looks to be a sea of floating moss so I will probably avoid going there tonight.Good Luck to all that get on the water tonight at midnight.

I gave it a try today,but after 1 1/2 hours I was soaking wet!Could not take the sideways rain comeing under the rain top and the moss was the worse I have seen so far.Zippo!

I'm not the only one with fish success,many other boats are doing well too,some big girl's have been caught the last few days.Sure right when I have to return to Chautauqua the fishing on the Niagara River is the best I've seen in years!

Last night Chris & I started trolling the west river at 9:30 pm.Every muskie we marked was directly tight to the bottom,as was the bait fish pods.Moss was not unbearable,cleaning every 30 minutes.Finally we lifted the skunk and Chris reeled in a 38"er at 2:10 am.We quit at 2:45 am giving in to the fact not much happening.
