Summer: Muskie love fast moving spinner baits buzzed over a thick cabbage bed. If you use a single hook you will be able to maneuver it through the weeds without getting loaded up with weeds. Short casts into the open pockets are more productive that long casts. Like Northern Pike, shallow is the key. 1 to 5 feet of water!!! You will be amazed when you can pull 50" + fish from 1 to 2 feet of water!
Fall: Muskie still love the spinner baits but as the water cools large jerk baits like Suick's are priceless!! Along with the Believer or Swim Whiz, these are great fall Muskie baits. It might be against your better judgment but if you fish the weed beds into late fall you can be rewarded with the fish of a lifetime!
