Water temp is around 63 degrees and the first mayflies have started to hatch here on the North end of Cass. Walleye action has still been good in the evening but since the panfish have invaded the shallows and musky season started...well, who needs walleye right now... grin.gif

Here are some pics of my boats first ski of 2007, it looks like a prop hit her durring the spawn. From what I have seen the muskies are holding on the edges and have not been in the weeds much at all yet.

Wow. I honestly admit I've never seen a more distinctly marked Upper Mississippi strain muskie of that size. Some smaller shorties, maybe... but not one that big. Looks almost like some of the Great Lakes muskies those guys catch on the Lake Erie charters. Beautiful. Good job Brian. Great release photo too.

So are you saying that the fish haven't moved up onto the weedbeds/cabbage? Or are they still hanging in the postspawn areas... like shallow sand flats? Thanks.

Mark

looks like they got a bit to close for action. That is crazy.

Beautiful fish, Brian (besides the nasty gash, poor girl). Congrats!

I might have to commandeer your services for half-a-day when I come up in August (12th thru the 18th). I'd love to hook into a few good musky and walleye. grin.gif

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
