Time lots of time. Cast or troll bucktails or body baits. Give it lots of time. Some times ppl go out and catch them every day. It takes experience and did I mention lots of time. I am happy if I get a follow. If I get one hooked up then its a good day. I have been fishing for muskie going on 5 years and I am learning new things every time I go out. If you are out there long enough u will eventually catch one.
