Click on the images below to learn more about the different types of minnows that anglers use for muskie.

Suckers are by far the best live bait that anglers use for muskie.

Chubs can also work very well.  You need to make sure to get the biggest chubs you can find in the bait shops though.  Many of the bait shops will carry smaller chubs that won’t be as good for muskie.

Shad also work great for muskie.  On many of the lakes down south, anglers will cast net shad and then use them as bait.
