Muskie Hunters ???

Just wondered if a few of you could list your 3 favorite  (under $6) lures for high mountain Muskie lakes ? I'd appreciate the imput. I'm going to Sportsman's on Friday and I want to pick up a few Muskie lures. Figured this was the best place to find out some good ones.  8)

I don't know if this matters, but their main source of food must be trout, as that is all that is in this lake.

Yeah, I'll be trying at Lake Estes (to start). I've actually been out 3 times in the last week trying (w/ no success) for a sucker. I'd rather use a lure, but I'd try bait. The meat on a jig sounds like a good ideal.
I have 8 pound P-line mono on my reel. Should I have something stronger put on my spare spool, or maybe use a leader?
Thanks again for the info.

P.S. $6 is probably kind of cheap (not really for me  :-[). If I catch one, a more expensive lure would be worth it. 8) Also, where I'll be trying is shallow, so I could always wade out for lost lures.
Hey, while I'm out there, I could try to catch one by hand! (JK Ed  ;D)
