Quincy Res. for Muskie! Fish make up most of the diet of both species, but Pike however are more aggresive feeders, striking most anything that comes into view. Muskies size up their prey more carefully, lying dormant until the moment is right, then attacking quickly. When Pike and Muskie are finicky, nothing triggers more strikes than real food. For fish over ten pounds, you should have lively baitfish at least 8 inches long. Cherry Creek Res. has both species and are difficult to catch because of the abundant forage.
Thanks Fishaholic for the info. I wonder if they stocked them to control the carp (especially big head that was found there) population. I usually discount the shallow side of the lake but it sounds like I need to be spending more time on that side.
