I was woundering if the muskies are hiting? I'm going there saturday, never fished the lake. Is it a topwater lake or what?

It is way to populated on the weekends to fish tongue.gif

Don't even waste your time on that lake during the weekend. Fish it during the week and you will have a much better fishing experience. I mainly fish bucktails and have done well! grin.gif

was out on sat morning and yes their were alot of boats but we got out their around 330 am and had one blow up on the third cast and two more blow ups before light. after the sun came up I had 4 follows and my buddy had one on and lost it with three follows. awsome morning I dont fish muskies real seriously so just having the follows is a treat.

blow up was on thunderstick and the follows I had were on orange bucktail with copperblade. I had one leppard frog left over from a catfishing trip and thought lets wing it out and see what happens my buddy had one follow on a top water lure and the fish turned near the boat so I thru the frog out by where the fish was and she came back and just looked at the frog but wouldnt touch it, then I thur it over a weed patch and slowly reeled it back to the boat and had one follow,small fish. it was really cool to see the reactions of those two fish.

I heard that Hwy 24 is closed for the remainder of the summer. So, do I have to go down 7 and past Indian to get to the south landing? I plan on heading out tomorrow morning to look for pike and possibly a ski.

Yes, Hwy 24 is closed from Hwy 7 in Clearwater to the city limits of Annandale. They have not started any dirt work yet, but are doing alot of tree removal at this time. I have not driven it during working hours, but have driven it at night and this weekend and they removing alot of trees, so getting passed during, working hrs may or maynot be a problem.

Tippmann, Thats the only time you can fish the lake, with all the weekend traffic.

No luck, the traffic issue does make sense.

I was out on Sugar last Sunday morning, no follows or nothing. Did not get out until about 6:00 A.M. and there was a bass tournament getting ready to role as we were going out. Lake was way too busy for me. I think I am burnt out fishing these musky lakes close to the cities, too busy and just getting pounded.

To whoever that was with the Alumacraft with one of the first Yamaha 115 4 strokes, you almost got a magnum bulldawg in your boat. Stay farther than 10' away please and do not turn around and do it again. Guy was trolling a bass spinner bait, sitting in the driver seat, with the bow mount down. What the heck? confused.gif

I know it was not any FM'ers, hopefully we all have more courtesy than that. Sorry to get away from the topic of the thread.
