One of the biggest things when it comes to musky fishing is stamina. Fishing for muskies is not easy. It is a lot of work to fish for muskies the right way. He can work with many ability levels but it does take some effort to fish for them.
Capt. Matt is dedicated to put you on fish. He does things differently than the rest that is why he is regarded as one of the best. He puts in the extra work and effort to get you on fish. Capt. Matt has seen over the years that straight full day fishing trips are kind of a waste of time and money since many days your best bite windows will be in the morning and evening. This is the best opportunity to catch fish. People booking full day trips during the summer months is a losing battle many days due to the lack of mid-day fish activity and fishing stamina. His theory is to fish when the fish are biting the best. Makes the most sense but many local guides do not do that. They offer a full day trip and grind it out throughout the day till your time is done. Capt. Matt doesn’t like to do that since he likes to make his fishing time on the water to be during the day’s peak periods.
He has found many parties want to fish for muskies but also want to have more rod bending action than what musky fishing usually offers. Even though he has a very high success rate on musky fishing trips many days your average catch is a fish or two during the trip. Capt. Matt has had several 5 muskies boated half day trips but your typical day is 1-2 muskies boated. Most half day trips Capt. Matt puts you on muskies and can do that in that time before people become fatigued casting.
Since people want to also catch a meal of fish or have some rod bending action with less effort he likes to package a lot of his full day trips as a combination and fish for them when they bite the best. He offers what he calls a modified full day. Where you will fish the morning and afternoon during prime times but has his pricing to where it won’t break the bank as badly as booking 2 1/2 day trips where you get the best of both worlds and not waste your time on the water fishing through the heat of the day grinding out the typical full day trip.
