After seeing several muskie following my big bass baits last year, I have caught muskie fever. What kind of fishing line works the best for the BIG guys? Do you really need 50lb test with a leader? I will tend to cast more than troll. I love the Power Pro braided line for casting baits. I have a Cabelas Muskie rod (7ft 1-2 1/2oz) with an Abu Garcia C4, along with a Bass Pro (7ft 1/2-1 1/2) baitcasing set up (not to mention seven other combos).

P.S.-Have any of you guys caught muskie on big jigs?

I haven't used anything over 20 pounds casting in years except on a Jerk Bait Rod. I also have not used leaders in 30 years and I don't lose many fish to bite offs.

That C4 you have is great for Bucktails. Spinner Baits and Rattle Traps. Bob

Thanks for the info Bob. I am glad to hear that you are doing well. I appreciate your tips on the radio. I hope to hook up with you fishing some time, or are you already booked for the rest of the year?
