I think im gonna head out from the metro daysail and try casting for muskie while drifting a crawler harness for eyes. Any recommendations on muskie lures? I still havent been able to land my first fish, and id like to give it a try before the lake freezes up. Will be leaving the house around 4:00 and plan on staying out until sunset. Any advice would be great.

The area you'll be fishing has had A LOT of floating weeds so you might want to try a lure that's semi-weedless. A bucktail with a willowleaf blade & single hook should help keep most weeds off.

You can always remove the treble (if it is attached w/a split ring) & add your own single hook. If the treble isn't attached w/a split ring then just cut the hook off at the hook eye then add a split ring (a good quality heavy duty) & a single hook (generally a saltwater O'Shaughnessy).
