That I'm always fishing for Muskie but keep catching big stripers? Should I just quit fishing Muskie and target stripers? Maybe that'll reverse my odds a little...

Hey Ryan, all I can say is that murphy is usually right.

I've always wondered, given a striper and musky of about the same weight, which puts up the better fight? Since you target muskie I am assuming that they are more fun to land.

Striper puts up a better fight by far, especially a big one. It's not even comparable. To be honest, I don't really know why I target Muskie.

ryan- i just like to tell people i'm targeting "big fish".. never really care if it's a muskie or striper as long as i get something that will put a bend in my rod!

bobd- stripers fight harder any day of the week!

i guess because muskies are known as the fish of a thousand casts, the challenge to catch a big one adds to the fight, antisipation and experiance. i have a bunch of muskie gear - it's still waiting for them to move south of the oromocto so i can reach them with a cast...lol!!!

Striped Bass are by far a harder fighting fish, and they are way better eating.Musky can fight like hell, but it is more short lived.If your lucky enough to fish in an area that holds both, try fishing at night[where legal]Bass can be very aggressive at night and don't have the fear when fishing in clear water locations.
