Muskie fishing is the best in the fall - October, November and into December.
The method generally used is to troll with down riggers.
Muskie fishing requires time and plenty of patience! If you happen to be one of the lucky ones who catches the ever elusive Muskie it can be very gratifying and can be in the 50+ inch range
you will need a N.Y. State fishing license - available locally. Licenses are not required for anyone under 16 years of age. Canadian fishing licenses are also recommended as over half of the fishing is in Canadian waters. Please check with your guide as to which licenses you will need at least a week prior to your trip.
