est fish while casting surface lures on existing outside weedlines. Kyle on the other hand has reported many multi fish days pursuing them with his trolling expertise. As long as the muskies are on the move, they are using energy and will campaign forage to replenish their reserves. However, one must keep in mind they are not necessarily using defined prime spot on a spot structures and you will have to cover water to find them. 47 degrees: By now we are well entrenched in the fall season. Fish are well established in transition areas again utilizing vertical structure. They are now in the process of energy conservation and some of the larger females may even start to experience the beginning stages of egg production which will redirect their available energy reserves to this natural process, which will become even more apparent as the temps continue to fall. Muskies are feeding and focusing on forage with high fat content. Suckers and cisco are prime forage choices. Fish will most often be at their peak weight. Trolling these areas is now a primary consideration. Again fish may still respond during warming trends by moving shallow. Fish utilizing shallow structure and remaining vegetation make casting an effective option with limited success. 37 degrees: Fish are now usually found in deep water in their established wintering zones. Once the water temp drops to 39 degrees the upper level of the water column sinks and as the surface of the water column continues to cool fish will seek the warmer deeper layer. Deep trolling and casting become the method of choice. So there you have it, our “Rules of 7’s” and how you might apply our theory to your next muskie experience. Follow the simple “Rules of 7’s” on your next outing and enjoy a muskie on us.
