St.Lawrence river muskie.

You can  drift the deep water shoals of Clayton using a heavy fishing rig baitcasting tackle spooled with 30-pound test line or stronger and a wire leader,muskie can bite through regular fishing line. If you can find them at the local bait store a 6 to 10 inch sucker hook through the mouth is a great musky killer. Fishermen use a 1/2 ounce sinker placed about 3 feet above the hook to let the sucker swim around. Using a fish finder find the shoals that are next to deep water the muskies lay along the rock shoals and feed on bait fish like a sucker. Trolling a large sucker  bait is also good for muskie anglers because you can cover more water and increase the chances  of a strike from a muskie. Remember muskies take a long time to grow so its important to handle the quickly and release the muskie back into the river as soon as possible.
While you are visiting Clayton New York take the time to visit the Antique Boat Museum its the world's largest fresh water boat museum. People have been there many times and the boats are absolutely pristine. Remember to practice catch and release when fishing for the St.Lawrence river muskie.
