Polarized Glasses by Pete Maina
Top of the chain predators like muskie have a very high
propensity to “check out” their prey before striking. Being
low-density, any possible way to locate them (spotting them
resting, briefly following, or just a flash) is a huge
advantage. And, it’s extremely important to know of their
presence behind a lure as soon as possible – so that
attempts to trigger a strike (speeding up, twitching …) via
lure action can be made on the retrieve and near the boat –
leading right into a proper figure eight at boatside. Learn
to always concentrate on that water behind and below lures,
looking for approaching shapes, or anything different … at
times a simple change in water color will give away a fish’s
presence. There are so many other advantages as well – thing
you will just never see without quality polarized lenses
that can be huge factors: weed-type changes that create and
edge, holes and pockets in weeds; tall rocks or dips in
rocks (show up as distinct hue changes), submerged wood …
all of these things are fish holding zones, and therefore
should be specific targets for casting. It’s a huge factor.
I simple won’t fish without ‘em.
