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.

my buddies got a 40in and a 38in fishing jigs with plastics for pike and northern before muskie opener. 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.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
