There's a good chance you have some damaged Bull Dawgs in your garage. Rubber material rips and muskies/pike love tearing off those beautiful fluttering tails....
Repairing and replacing tails is actually VERY easy – this short video from Doug Wegner does a good job demonstrating the process:
You can use this method to repair your baits, but it's also great for mixing-and-matching different bodies and tails to create something totally unique.
Whiteboard 'skie Tips
Just got done watching a video from Jordan Weeks (Biological Angler) and wanted to mention it here in the newsletter.
He has some stellar action footage, catching this gorgeous 'skie:
.... but the best part of the video was when he utilized a whiteboard to break down where/how he found and caught her:
Definitely worth a watch! I'd love to see more videos like this in the future – it takes the best parts from standard musky videos (action) and magazine articles (graphics and explanations) and combines them into one easy-to-watch segment.
Wear your Silks!
How many of you utilize SILK in your wardrobe to help stay warm during the coldwater musky chasin' season??
I was reading a Gord Pyzer writeup talkin' about staying warm on the ice, when I stumbled upon this quote:
"The first step is putting on a pair of thin inexpensive silk socks. Silk is respected as a thermal regulator that keeps your feet warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It does this by creating space between the fibres and wicking the moisture away from your skin like wool, which should be the key ingredient in the second pair of socks you wear over the first."
He also recommends rockin' granny's silk gloves for the same reason.
If your grandmother doesn't have an extra pair laying around, you could probably borrow some from this dude 😂
All jokes aside.... warm hands and toes are SUPER important if you want to grind long hours in the fall, chasing that elusive 50 pounder. Steal strategies from anywhere you can find them – ice fishermen, sailors, mimes, etc. 😉
