We've all heard the stories of Pike and Musky even a big ol Largemouth eating muskrats and ducklings etc.. And I love fishing top water so what I tried to do was match the spring duckling hatch. This is not just for looks it pushes water in a spray like manner looking just like a duckling trying to scoot across the water. It's a blast just watching it come back to ya.
With the New Jersey tying symposium coming up in November, I've been using any and all free time to get as many patterns spun up as possible. These Big ol poppers move a ton of water and create a fantastic "PLOOM" sound that the muskies hear like a dinner bell. Lightweight, easy to cast, and who doesn't love the top water bite!? Especially when it's a big Musky taking it down.
Well the river here is starting to get back to it's normal levels after some vicious flooding, and with the fall eat coming on I thought I'd better tie up something to wet big mans appetite, and I think these double articulated baitfish should get some attention.
