A Video Is Worth 10,000 Casts: A Camera, Commitment, and Other Trophy Musky Musts

In accordance with the apparent unspoken law of fishing writing, the phrase “the fish of 10,000 casts” must appear at least once in any article about fishing for muskellunge. The problem with that cliché is that it reinforces the belief that a musky really is that hard to catch. That can end up turning away would-be musky-slayers who could be having a blast fighting these monstrous fish. 

But muskies are not the fish of 10,000 literal casts—or at least they don’t have to be. Like their pike cousins, they are aggressive ambush predators that will eat anything they can fit in their massive, toothy maws. Armed with the right gear, some reliable advice (research is a must), and a few new tricks (like an underwater fishing camera), you can be landing trophy muskies in short order.

If you’re an angler, it’s a virtual certainty that you’ve stared at the water wondering: How many fish are actually down there? What species, and how big are they? Perhaps most importantly: Why aren’t they hitting? Without the assistance of technology, it’s difficult to know any of that for sure.

Fish finders and other tools are steps in the right direction. Without a true visual tool, however, what’s happening under the surface was destined to remain a mystery—at least before the GoFish Cam came along. Now, you can finally get a window to the other side, the world of the fish you’re stalking, by taking advantage of the GoFish Cam underwater fishing camera. The following are just a few of the ways GoFish Cam has changed everything.

10 Tips for When the Fish Won’t Bite

We’ve all been there. Some days the bait barely hits the surface before fish take it. Other days … not so much. I experienced it firsthand recently with Ronnie Green of the Discovery Channel’s A Fishing Story. Out on Ronnie’s boat in Tampa Bay in the shadow of the Howard Frankland Bridge. With perfect conditions and in Ronnie’s local fishing hole, we thought our preparations were just right. Armed with his expert knowledge of his home waters, we were all confident we’d have a big day.

Well, as it sometimes goes with fishing, our plans didn’t work out so well. We knew the fish were down there by watching our fishing camera and fish finder, but it was a high pressure day and we only managed to get one bite. Yeah, I know ... next I’m supposed to say “a bad day fishing is better than a good day at work!” like some sort of 1980s T-shirt ... but we all know that’s just what we say to make ourselves feel better about a slow day. We wanted to catch something!

So we put together this guide of the best tips and tricks to turn around a slow day:
