Blue Ridge Musky • 10-19 years of experience
Come out on the Jetboat with Captain Sam Scott for a full 8-10 hour day of musky fishing! Whether you’re a fly angler or gear fishing , first time musky angler or seasoned veteran - I will make sure your trip is one for the books! Fish Solo, or bring a CoAngler.
We can accommodate up to 3 Anglers on the RockProof Jet Boat. Group trips available up to 7 anglers with additional guides.
Our Fall Season starts the second week of September and runs to Dec 1. Fall fishing for Muskies you can expect low clear water with plenty of sight fishing opportunities throughout the season. Top water and blade action on the early fall, giving way to a great crank bait and jerk bait bite later on.
Our Winter Season or “PreSpawn” runs from Dec through the end of March. This is when our fish are at their heaviest weight all
Year and they are putting the feed bag on in preparation for spawn. Your chances of catching a true GIANT Virginia Musky are at their best during this time of year. Peak season is Jan 10 - Feb 21. Any New Moon or Full moon date in the winter season also brings good odds.
For the month of April we leave our fish alone and let them focus on having a successful spawn. During this month we are chasing trophy 5lb+ Smallmouth
Our Postspawn Season is during the months of May and June. This is a favorite among anglers for the very exciting Blade Bite. Burning blades to the boat as fast you can or double hand stripping a Fly back to the boat can produce some incredible strikes and boatside Figure 8 action ! Top Water and Sight Fishing is also a common tactic during this time of year.
July and August we hang the musky rods up while it is too hot to ethically catch and release musky in Virginia. We will be switching over to warm water species such as smallmouth , Gar on the Fly , Striped Bass, and Catfish.
