Default Mellton Hill Musky

I'm heading out today, for my first time chasing musky. I'll be fishing from my drift boat around the bull run creek area. Any tips on how to find these toothy beast?

Thanks
Rodney

Rod,
I hear 'S' Pattern Retrieves... That is all I know about them. I hope you catch some. I am sure you can get some bass around that spot if you do not find a musky. Good luck!

Pick a big bushy fly that moves water. Cast at cover, strip fast, and repeat. When one follows, don't let your heart come out of your chest. Enjoy and good luck.

Rod, let me know how you do.
Dad and I have fished for them quite a few times and have had some follows, but no takes. Like gmreeves said, it really gets your heart racing. One in particular looked like an alligator coming out of the brush.

Well let's just say I got some oar time in this evening. Beat the banks and every lay down between bull run boat ramp to the railroad bridge and back. Nothing at all. I'm clueless here any tips would be great.

I hear the fly has to be at least 4" minimum to get them attracted.
