One of the biggest signs of obsession is you start seeing your topic of fixation ALL OVER the dang place.
We see muskies in the clouds, in the mashed potatoes 😂, but here's a new one....
Have you ever seen a musky in an ultrasound??
I'm thinkin' this is the perfect Rorschach (inkblot) test to tell if you're hopelessly obsessed with musky fishing. 😅
Studies have shown: the 25% of our readers that use livescope to target 'skies were able to recognize the ultrasound musky 45% faster than the rest of our readers!
But seriously, why are we the way that we are?? 😅
This is a GIF-heavy newsletter this week, so hopefully, you've got some strong internet access right now! 😂
Here's a few we thought were cool:
Just when you thought you weren't going to see a musky eat by your feet for another 6 months....
Saw that clip on the @muskie_nation page. Not sure the original poster.
This next one isn't a figure-8 masterclass by any means, but a really cool visual from @fisherman_jase of a musky following his swimbait onto a rip rap bank.
Okay, last one! How sick is this slo-mo lift from Utah fly dude Cade Moore??
Weird Pike Deal
Apparently, they do bait fishin' a little differently across the pond (well, sometimes anyway.... 😂)
Check out this crazy "dead bait harness" from Ghost Products in Germany:
Now that's a unique design....
No clue if this setup would catch a muskie, but I'm lovin' this buttery GIF:
Haha, of course a musky would smash that thing!
They also use some interesting terminology on their website:
- Trolling buckle = Trolling harness
- Shovel = The bill of the bait
- Triple hooks = Treble hooks
Anyway, just something random/different we thought you might enjoy 🤷♂️

THIS WEEK'S MONSTER MUSKIES:
Awesome late season 'skie from Cortland Spletter – here's the caption he sent with the photo 😂: "Lac Seul 49.99. I couldn’t stretch it far enough lol"
Great nighttime musky from Austin Gates fishing with his buddy Dylan Peotter. She drilled his bait when he wasn't paying attention and had 4 feet of line dangling off the side of the boat. According to Austin, it "felt like I hit a piece of wood followed by wild head shakes."
You know you're doing it right when you have the reflection of the moon in the back of your musky picture. Sweet shot from Scott Ellis 🔥
