Wisconsin southern Opener starts today!

From Musky Hunter Magazine’s Managing editor Steve Heiting

Wisconsin’s southern musky opener is tomorrow, May 1. If I can’t get it done with these three baits, the muskies aren’t biting! A St. Croix Mojo Musky MJM86MHF, a baitcasting reel geared about 5:1 and loaded with 65# test braid, and a Stealth Twitchbait Leader is a perfect combo for such smaller lures. Good luck to all heading out!

Here is a video from our friends at Anglers Anarchy from last years opener!
