    RE: Are there any true musky experts?

    On a side note, to go along with the hero/zero, for anyone who thinks they might actually be an “musky expert”, I have successfully developed a couple ways to knock yourself back down a notch and keep yourself grounded.

    1. BD (Before Dbl 10’s): Go to LOTW for a week with a complete novice (wife, girl friend, son, daughter, bass buddy) and have them cast nothing but a Top Raider all week while you try a variety of other lures.
    2. AD (After Dbl 10’s): Make a bunch of Dbl 10 lures for your "less experienced" buddies and fish for a week on LOTW hitting all of the same milk run spots.

    ahh yes, but your science is flawed as it takes you, the "expert" , to put your wife on the correct spot and to make the choice of lures and spots to fish for your buddies...I'm guessing they wouldn't fare well without you to get them started

    Had a similar experience up there earlier this year taking out a complete novice one night..Not having the proper equipment relegated him to having to throw small blades ( buchertails, marabous)..Sure enough, he fished behind me and the mighty Double 10's and had more action and stuck a real nice pig to get his first ever at the end of the night..Although logic told me that shouldnt have been the case that time of year you can bet your butt I switched up and saw results immediately the rest of the week...always something to learn from somebody ( or take you out of a comfort zone and make you switch things up) as you guys have pointed out ...

    Fishing Slop
    Fishing open water
    Fishing shallow wood
    Fishing deep timber
    Fishing shallow rocks
    Fishing Steep rock walls
    Fishing deep humps
    Fishing dark water
    Fishing clear water
    Fishing small rivers
    Fishing big rivers
    Wading for muskies
    In touch with the baitfish movements of all of the above type of waters
    In touch with seasonal movements of all of the above
    Trolling
    Live Bait Fishing
    Soft Plastics
    Bucktails
    Jerks
    Cranks
    Use of electronics
    Boat control

    Just a partial list of the variables involved in musky fishing. I would bet there are several who are experts at most things on the list, but few if any who can say they are experts on everything on the list above. That, to me, indicates that there are no true musky experts.

    I've met one, my grandpa. Picture near Lake Tomahawk, one of many throughout the years. Circa 1944.

    Been a few years, but I wonder if this question has evolved into other considerations?
