..."and then, on September 22nd 1957, in sight of Clayton, NY, I hung and landed the largest muskellunge ever caught by hook and line..."

Private Party Muskie Hunts

We are the ONLY charter service in the region offering a variety of Muskie Hunts
and we take you to prime muskie fishing waters, including where the World Record was caught in 1957.
Pricing depends on length of trip and number of anglers...see below.

  Some visiting anglers just don't have the time for a full day fishing trip. Many others just want to experience a muskie fishing trip to see what it's like. Then there are real "Muskie Men," intent on accomplishing the supreme achievement in fresh water fishing. Whichever group you fall in, here is a 1st of its kind opportunity to experience the essence of a true full fledge muskie hunt in search of a trophy muskie in the time frame that best suits your intentions.

    For half day trips, fishing begins just minutes after leaving the dock. With the extra time, the six hour trip offers your choice of fishing either New York or Canadian waters and full day trips are done in Canadian waters, beginning with a 25 minute ride from Clayton to the beginning of the fishing groumds.

    There are only two natural strains of muskellunge left in North America. Not only is the St. Lawrence strain one of them, it is the largest of the two. To fresh water anglers, a lifetime achievement is catching a muskie. To "Muskie Men," serious anglers who have caught numerous muskies, catching a St. lawrence River muskie means crossing one more thing off their Bucket List.
    From opening day in mid June muskies are caught throughout the fishing season, although the onset of the fall chill signals increased interest in muskie fishing. As the water temperature gradually declines, it stimulates muskies to begin foraging for everything they can eat to store up fat for the long winter ahead. Muskies are never "easy" to catch, that's why they are the supreme trophy in fresh water fishing. But they are easier to catch as the water temperature drops and their appetite becomes voracious.

       As any experienced muskie guide will tell you, there are as many muskies caught in the first three hours of the first day as the last three hours of the 2nd day. Regardless of your choice of trip length, don't think you are short changing your self. Around here, everytime you drop a muskie lure in the water, the odds are the same.
