Otonabee river musky tips

Recommended Posts

Hey all. I'll be heading out to the Otonabee river this Sunday, targeting musky. I never knew there were even musky in there, but I'll be going out with a few guys who have more experience than I do. Appreciate any general tips for this area, general locations or lures that I should try. Thanks!

Look for the usual structure - weed lines, especially along drop offs, points, sunken timber, etc.  Bright colored bucktails for searching and have a med sized jerkbait on standby.  Watch for follows.. the usual.

I landed a small muskie on the Otonabee river along a weed line throwing top water just before sunset in mid August.  It was one of the many areas where there is a shallow, lillypad loaded bay.  I simply stayed along the outside edge and was throwing weedless jig hunting for bass.  This one evening there were a few splashes in the lilypads and I said to my co-angler "I think muskie have come into the shallows to feed, I'm going to throw a top water along the edge" ... 2nd cast and BAM.  Landed a small muskie.

I haven't been back on the Ontonabee since ... but that was my experience.
