    I haven't fished for musky in LSC since September 2017. I've heard from several people that it's been a bit slow.

    I caught a 42" musky jigging the upper DR last weekend, and my buddy got a 45" fish. I lost one on Tuesday as well. Not sure how big that one was. Lots of them busting the surface chasing something.

    Can be good and bad days. My bet is the general trend the whole year has been negative.

    Not much input for comparison to prior years it seems.

    I’ve been casting and trolling US waters since July. Caught a small musky, it’s my first year so I’m probably not a good example. I’ve considered changing it up and jigging river and channels. Still learning and going broke such an expensive fish to target

    Don't get crazy buying lures, if the fish are biting they are biting and usually not too picky. At least that was my take when I casted for them years back, but maybe they were a lot more plentiful when i casted for them 10 years ago.

    I think there were likely more and water wasn't so damn clear. Hard to really tell this year because of travel restrictions
