Hey Muskiebait,

SOrry as I'm little help chasing those monsters. I spend most of my time on the water fishing Walleye, northern, crappie and Smallies. I'm not sure if FM fishes for Muskies or not. Good Luck when you do get out budddy!

Well Rainydaze you don't know what you are missing it really gets the heart pounding, you may want to think about giving it a whirl..... It is a little better than chasing pike...

Was the other day in Redgut. Fished for the evening, probably about three hours. Had a swirl(could have been a northern too...I didn't get a good enough look at it). It went after a Topcat by bigfork lure co. Caught two pike on 9" jakes...nothing of any size though.

I was fishing new weed growth adjacent to rocks. I want to get out this week and fish solely for skis, probably won't be till next friday. frown.gif

On a side note we went up to a small lake in canada last night...spur of the moment type deal...ended up hooking into four pike. 12-16 pounds. The fish came off of 9" walleye suicks and gold F18 Raps.

I think fishmeister would enjoy a muskie fight, but I don't think we can pull him away from the walleyes!! grin.gif

Hey Muskiebait,

I'm sure I'd enjoy it. A couple years ago I started bow hunting again, and really didn't need anymore passions. Oh well! Nice thing about guiding is your rewarded for putting in overtime! Ha! Lord knows I've logged a share of time on the water. Absolutely tearing up the eyes! We're in God's country boys! Good Fishing! I'm already looking forward to fishing on hardwater again. For all of you that enjoy fishing the summer up here I'd highly suggest hitting the hardwater this winter. A true adventure featuring small crowds and big fish! Not many lakes will boast that anymore.

Made it Sabaskong on Friday for an all day of fishing. Saw our muskies from 5:00 am- 10:00 am and again from 5:00 pm to 9:30 pm. All in all saw 14 'skis, hooked up on two and boated one. Saw one 50+, one in the upper forties, and the rest were in that 38-44 class. The one we boated was 42"...really nice fish. All the fish were on the rockpiles, with the exception of the big one...that was in the cabbage patch forrest. grin.gif All the ones we hooked up on came on Sandcats, but lots of lookers were on Topcats and Docs.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.

      How did you do?

      So I am torn I want to put a graph in my smaller boat.. I love my lx 6 flasher and am thinking about getting the high speed transducer for it and just going with that but I don't get why they charge $199 for it when bird and lowrance ducers are far less   I almost pulled the trigger on the lowrance hook 4 with down scan and chart plotter at gander for $179  I don't care about the chart plotter really as I have a big hand held gps that I use in that boat and that screen is larger than the hook 4 when you have it split plotter and graph they only had the display model left and wouldn't go lower price so I passed   If I can find the hook 4 at another gander that doesn't have the chart plotter for cheaper I may go with that   Does any one have experience with the lx on open water I hear it is at par with an lowrance elite 5 I am kind of wanting to go with that but don't know   What would you do run the lx open water or go with hook 4 with down scan

      We survived our trip!  LOL   Fishing was steady.   We caught 30 walleyes in 3 days of fishing.  Usually fished from 11 am to 4 pm.  The 'eyes were running small, lots of 11 to 13 3/4" fish, but we did get 3 keepers.  We also kept a few nice perch and crappies.  We also caught a few snake northerns.   Jigging w/ chubs produced the best, but I did catch a few 'eyes on the crawler lindy rig combo.  Mid lake structure and underwater points off of islands all produced fish.  Mayflys were hatching, but the fish were still hungry. I did catch a 4-5 lb channel cat in the Savanna River one evening.   We stayed in the south loop of the Army Corp campground.  We liked that we were w/in about 30 yds of our boat which we kept at the dock.  The river on the north side of us and the lake on the south side offered a nice breeze to keep things cool and the bugs away for the most part.  Con's were the campsites are small and were too close together.  Also no turn around at the end of the south loop road.  The north loop was beautiful, spacious campsites, but surrounded by swamp and we heard the skeeters were bad at dusk.  Definitely want some thermacells or a screen tent to enjoy the evening by the sounds of things.  Also the docks aren't close/in view of the campsites.   We would definitely stay there again, on the north loop, in May or Sept. after the skeeters have died down a bit.   Staff was friendly, shower houses were nice, boat landings were nice.     Brian

      Went out Thursday for a few hours. Caught a 28" Walleye along with a handful of nice sized Bass.
