Make Muskies Your Top Priority!

It's never too early to start planning for muskies. If you are looking for ideas on how to get started, need tips to increase your success or you enjoy pictures of big fish be sure to catch Ace Sommerfeld's presentation "Make Muskies Your Top Priority in 2019." You'll get a little bit of everything from getting started with proper equipment, to picking lures that fit your needs. Ace will walk you through a cast from start to finish. The importance of choosing when to fish will also be covered.

Ace is quick to point out how his partners got him started on the right foot 10 years when he decided to make muskies his top priority. Since then he has achieved the status of Master Angler by releasing nearly 350 muskies. He is a regular contributor to MUSKY HUNTER and has been a Field Editor with MUSKIE since 2012. "Successful musky fishing is a long-term commitment," he said. "Bring your questions and comments, I thrive on audience participation."
