When to Run the Milkrun for Muskies

Most folks know what a “milkrun” is. Basically it‰’s a series of spots or particular spots on a spot that just seem to produce on a very regular basis. It takes time on the water to develop a milkrun. First, the spots need to found then they need to be fished multiple times under a variety of conditions to see if they consistently produce.

Be careful though, not to beat-up a milkrun. Many folks are guilty of this. Once they have it (generally enough to fish all day), they stop looking other places. Always try new spots. Add to the run. Direct fishing pressure affects any good spot in negative fashion. Continual frothing will make a great spot mediocre pretty quick. Save a milkrun for when you know fish are really moving and you want to optimize your time during an obvious feeding window.
