Here’s Really How to Convert a Muskie Follow into a Strike

Getting a strike from a muskie follow can be tough, but it can be done! 

Chis Munchow is a renowned upper Midwest muskie guide hailing out of his home state of Minnesota. One of the harder techniques to teach newer muskie fishermen is the art of the figure 8. Either they get it or they don’t. If they do, it’s a whole different ball of wax trying to teach them how to convert a muskie follow into a strike. As you are about to see, Munchow and his clients, have this part down.

If you know muskies, you know follows are the name of the game. When one finally converts, like it did for this angler, it’s a very special thing.

How cool is it when a muskie comes in like ready to eat? A muskie follow doesn’t convert a high percentage of the time. Normally, they flash off before you ever really get a good look at them. However, every now and then, things line up and you get a fish in the net.
