Why not both? Now is a good time to get out after both species. I had Joe and Jeff out this past Sunday for their first musky on the fly experience. I had mentioned to the guys we could throw for smallmouth bass also when we weren’t in desirable musky water. We put in more time on the musky and it paid off for Joe when this 33 inch tiger musky ate his fly. Not ten minutes later Joe hooked into a big momma, she gave a couple big head shakes and she was free. We moved a few more musky on the fly the rest of the day. Jeff did well with smallmouth bass when he wasn’t chucking flies after musky.
