For years, we at Simply Fishing have had the pleasure to attempt to educate viewers and attendees of our various seminars as to the specifics of the sport of muskie fishing. The information we propose to introduce is grounded in science and experience. We believe in the value of reserving unnecessary comments or conclusions until our experience has demonstrated the true and relative nature of our findings. And provide a learning experience grounded on a sound foundation of these experiences. Educating anglers solely by the written word is an art, rather than a science and is in fact one one of the toughest challenges an educator will face. You, the reader, cannot see all the necessary elements with which we attempt to base our strategies to apply a persistently productive game plan in the pursuit of the muskie. It is for this reason we appreciate the continued achievements of the writers and editors of Musky Hunter and their efforts to promote a strong understanding of the sport. It is in this context that we desire to make this process as simple and easy to understand as possible. To provide a baseline of information with which one can easily apply to their very next muskie pursuit. Keep in mind, in this sport there are no real tricks, there are only variations of well thought out techniques from which everyone can benefit from understanding. Managing water temperature and discerning its effect on the prey/predator relationship will become one of your most valuable assets in your arsenal of knowledge. Truth be known, no one will ever figure this fish out entirely. I do think however, many of us are guilty of not even trying. We discover a pattern or two that will work from time to time or a few spots that seem to produce the occasional fish. But how often do we take the time to examine our situation and in turn ask ourselves, why? Why did it work? Why were the fish there? Because knowing and understanding will make you a better, more productive angler. Next time, make it a point to ask yourself why a fish might use an “old faithful” spot during your annual trip in July. Knowing might explain why the fish are not there when nature throws you a curve ball or two or your boss changes your July fishing trip to September. In this spirit of simplicity, we’ve conjured up an easy to remember system which we refer to as “7 degrees of muskie location” or simply “the rule of 7’s.” In this process we address the variable stages “7” Degrees of Muskie Location ‘s Kyle Brickson Bob Mehsikomer
