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

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

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)

      Well if you are looking in the Minneapolis lake nokomis has a fishing pier   North metro Crooked lake in Andover has a pier. There is a nice park as well and all the sunfish you want to catch no big ones though.
