Mantrap Muskie Action????

5 posts in this topic

Hey Guys,

I've been out to Mantrap a few times and seen some fish

and some quality fish. I was just wondering if anybody else

has seen or have been lucky enough to cath a fish.

First one was caught on a jig head and 7in worm other was caught on a jig head and 10in powerworm. We made it out there last week for a day had one 3 follows but nothing hit one of the follows had to be 45 plus but here the pics of those two fish

It is actually legal to take them out of the water for a photo. You may not put them in a livewell or on a stringer obviously. The DNR clarified this for this years regulations finally. Not a bad idea to just keep them in the water though.

Hey JWB are you kidding me we were targeting pike and bass with jig heads in worm the 40in was caught on a 1/4 jig head and a 7in powerworm the 38in was caught on a jig head and 10in worm these were the same lures we caught all of our pike and bass that day we caught about 50 fish 2 being the muskie we were not targeting them outta season. They were were put back right after the pic and they swam away fine. I have respect for all species of fish your freaking out over nothing dude.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
