Consider this surface lure retrieve for muskie and pike
This is a consistant retrieve for a "walk the dog" style lure. Using a heavy action rod you will be able stir up enough excitement that only the larger fish within the area will consider biting.
Quick taps of the rod tip painted down towards the water surface will get the lure twitching from left to right. Watch behind the lure for a wake of an approaching fish. the follow will sometimes be slow right to the boat or it can be a quick snap of a biting mouth of a muskie or pike. if the fish could growl like a "pissed off" bear , it would really add to the startling moment!
