Nothing, not even a smell.
« on: February 18, 2019, 08:50:08 AM »
Fished Sat and saw five Musky boated by the entourage of boaters throwing gear (mostly out of staters). The water was pretty stained and the fly got zero love. What I did notice was that at a certain point in the day, around 1 to 1:30 pm central, there was something that turned the fish on big time. The moon rise was at 2:12 pm on Sat, so this could have been the factor... . We saw two fish boated and Dave had one blow up at our boat, but it missed. All this happened within 3 min of each other. That was very interesting to see, and certainly makes me a believer in bite windows... I'll be exploring some new water in the coming days. Hope to learn something new.

Iím sure there were some musky smells without the fish.

In the words of a musky both just needed to ďSuck lessĒ

I just joking, Iíve never been able to hit it right in that stained water.  Youíll be lucky to find the flows fishable in March with the current rain trends.  Atleast the fish wonít get beat up by anglers.
