Anybody get any muskies off Battle lake yet?? I only went out once this year and saw 2. Last year I got a nice 50" but that was it..

I was out on memorial weekend, and caught a 46"er, while trolling for walleyes on a rattle rap, on the south side of grassy flat. My first Muskie, no camera, I was just happy to get it in the boat, and that it swam away unharmed!! Thankfully I had a freind with who has caught muskies, and helped me through it.Lesson learned, to always have a disposable camera in the tackle box!!!

Got out Monday AM. 25-30mph wind hurt the casting, plus I had my Bro in the boat, and he's not super fisherman or anything. He wasn't too comfortable with the waves. But, I had a 40' or so follow. Lost something trolling, and had a big fish eat a Mag Bulldawg. 7 hooks but not one landed home. It slashed the hell out of my bait though.

They seemed hot out there.

Caught a 45" on Thursday in 30 FOW while jigging with a Griz Jig and a leech. Fought it for 20 mins and brought it boatside for measurement and hook removal. Didn't lift it out of the water as we wanted it to live on for another 10 inches or so...

Nice. Good to see people let them go. I've seen two pics in the last week, of 50"+ fish that were out of the water at bait shops or the back of a pick-up trucks. That breaks my heart.

Good job. It's nice to know there are smart people around still.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
