Guys I've been entered into a fish of the month comp with this monster Pike!! Please click the link and give my pic a like. Thanks so much 👍
What would be the best approach to fishing a shallow, swift river in spring? Ive never targeted them but I caught 1 small one last year smallie fishing and have heard of some great fish being caught. Would I be better to wait until the water warms up to target them? Thanks for any info!
What do you folks think about my musky set up? 9' 1-5oz paired with avet mccast sxj and some 50lb braid? I don't have many muskie within a 2-hour drive of my house but I want in!

A Musky Show in 2021! Sweet!

We're getting excited! The ONLY Musky Show in the Midwest this season and Ross's Sport Shop and Guide Service will be there! The Wausau Musky Bash will be taking the place of the Wisconsin Musky Expo this year on March 19th and 20th. Ross's will have our full booth set up bursting at the seams with everything Musky including Shimano Tranx Reels, Garcia Beasts and St. Croix Rods! We will also be introducing to the "Show" world a couple of new baits. This one we were able to to run a bit late last season and it sure is fishy looking. Trolls over 4 mph and can be straight retrieved or twitched as well with a killer back up floating motion when paused and a deadly body roll! The Mistress Muskie Lures Company is going to load us up with show colors plus has made us their own twist of our popular Nuge color! See you all there at the 2021 Wausau Musky Bash!

[09/22/20]   It's the first day of Fall! Who's still out there chasing Fall Giants? Who hangs up fishing for hunting? The big fish are moving here in Northern Wisconsin, I can't imagine missing out on the Fall Fishing. Good Luck out there.

Jason and Rebekkah - we will try to help find you a new kicker motor...
Please repost! Maybe whomever stole this motor will see this post and accept our offer...
Here is the information on the kicker outboard:
2001 Yamaha Tiller Outboard - Serial Number 023136 - Model Name 8MSHZ - 15” shaft length.
