Fishing with giant baits helped these anglers land huge muskies.
Watch as these anglers head out on Lake of the Woods in northern Minnesota aiming for big muskies. They used giant bais and the rewards are self-evident.
As you can see, fishing on Lake of the Woods for muskies is very fickle. There are specific windows of time where you'll be able to rip lip non-stop, as well as those where you might go the whole day without any action at all.
Did you see the size of those giant baits? They each measured around 12 inches long, helping them land a couple nice fish on the first few days of their trip. They caught a pike and a muskie, but they really wanted to land a 50-inch muskie.
Keep in mind that if muskies start hitting, keep the lines in the water. Once these fish starting biting, it's on.
