HEY FRENCH LAKE KID.............

8 posts in this topic

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.

Bigeye, is that where you have been hiding? the last couple of times on jeff I havent seen your boat at the dock or on the water. you havent been missing a whole lot, well at least not anything consistant anyway. just a few here and there.

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.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
