skie-bum: Back in the 70s I did a big research into the times Muskie hit the best and breaking it into 8 hour periods ie 6AM to 2PM 2PM to 8PM 8PM to 6AM. With almost 15.000 fish there was less than 1000 difference in the amount taken in any 8 hour period. I felt that the reason for this was that in Wisconsin and Minnisota that a lot of night fishing is done because of the pressure on the Muskie lakes during daylight hours. I know you can catch Muskie on Lake St Clair at night but few try it. Homer LeBlanc always said from 10 AM til 2PM was the best time and 1 30PM was his favorite period at least that is what he told me. Hope this helps. Oh by the way the best lure by far was a black silver bladed Buck Tail. Bob

That's why I like Musky fishing. One does not have to get up at dawn. You can stop at "lenny's" for breakfast.
Right Bob.

I consistently catch fish after 10 am. Very few before that or late afternoon. Don't fish at night so I can't speak to that. I fully agree that 10 to 2 is the prime hours from all I have read/learned and fished.

Be out there tomorrow, weather cooperating.
