I was wondering if you had a little info on the muskie bite on french? If you dont want to reply on here just drop me an e-mail at wallyhunter66@yahoo.com any help you could provide would be great. I have never caught a muskie but have had a few follows and was thinking the rock pile on french looked pretty good but i have never been on the lake before so any tips you could give would be great. thanks alot Todd

Good Luck out there, I spent Thursday afternoon and evening on French casting, water clarity made it tough to see any follows, was marking some nice fish out a little deeper, but never tried trolling for them.

Just got back from French, water is still murky so we couldnt tell if we had any follows. We fished with bucktails and top water lures. Did have the local Rice county sherriff stop by and shoot the breeze though, he said they are biting and one of the local guys that lives on the lake just pulled in a 50 plus fish. Todd

Sry wallyhunter66 I've been fishing,working a lil, and at my dads, none of them have a computer. When I went to my g-ma to "work" I got up early to go fish a lil of of Hoy's dock with a sucker. Caught a 45" around 6:30 and sad story I dont know if she made it. You can read 'bout that under the muskie forum. After that I had 1 of my 3 suckers left and went to hook it and the slimey lil guy got out of my hands and into the lake. So my day ended early and my work also started early. I'll be out there 2sday through wedsnday possibly thursday. Then again this weekend. Next report will be the next time I find a computer or next monday or 2sday.

Hey Guppie Ya the boat sits in the garage most of the time frown.gif Our lift needs repair so we decided not to put it on their this year. Actually that was the first day of fishing since memorial day frown.gif I know it's been a tough year for getting out.

      Thanks all. FYI I'm located on Frazer Bay on Vermilion. Give a shout out if/when you may be on the water up there. I may give the Pike River Flowage a try tomorrow or Saturday. I'll provide a report if I go. Thanks again.

      @Rick G, it's about the questionable link they left. Either something hard is going to popup. Or someone may end up with a virus. Or both!

      MrPike, you using the 6" or 8" k-drill?

      I sure would like to see your video Curt, but can't seem to get past the error code myself. Hope it was a good one, and always look forward to seeing them..

      Thanks Rick G that will be this springs project one thin spray on the top and bottom should be just right. Seems they all have this issue you’d think they’d do somthing about it.

      I've got a 9 ah battery ordered in addition to my 5 ah batteries.   I'm thinking I should be in better shape.  But with the ice getting pretty thick I'll be switching to my gas auger soon.

      Thanks for the replies I will be getting one today. Poseidon one thing to check is your blade sharpness Last year I thought my drill was getting weak I put new blades on and away I went.  With this open winter they tend to dull faster just an idea. I'm getting about 15 -18 holes per battery in 20 inches of ice also with same set up.

      Teach them up in the way they should go. And they will never part from it! Great video!   Mom probably loved the day off too!
