I fish them from calm sunny days to rainy windy days on unfished portage lakes and big lakes that get pounded with Mepps on baitcasters. They almost always produce. I would love to have the chance to chase Musky down south but my limited fishing time usually takes me to the mountains. My only advice is to keep going after them and fish a fly in the 6"-8" range that moves water, whether that top water or subsurface.

gmreeves, shoot me an email if you don't mind. I have some questions about that fly but also some suggestions about musky if you are interested...
