Creek Chubs & Redtail Chubs are known more for being great baits for northern pike, walleye and big bass, but they will also catch muskie.  The bigger chubs in the 6 to 8 inch range will definitely work for muskie, although, most muskie anglers would prefer to use a big sucker instead.  Whether you choose to use a chub or sucker, you’re most like going to want to use a quick-strike rig because most muskie will grab the bait in the middle.  If you have one hook running through the mouth of the muskie, you’re going to miss a lot of bites with the bigger chubs.  The quick-strike rig also helps anglers release healthy muskie that can go on to be caught another day.
