MUSKIES

8 posts in this topic

Probably heading up to there on Friday mid-day. How have the muskies been biting? Any suggestions? I have only fished there 2 or 3 times. Mainly Vineland bay.

Big fish are moving on the weed beds on the north end and also on many of the reefs on the east side. Look for buoys and start casting...it can't get any easier.

Just like Paul said. This is a great time to be on the Pond as the entire lake is alive with activity. There are literally fish everywhere. Weeds, rock and sand all hold fish right now. Get adventurous and troll some of the sharper breaks on the flats.Shhhh.If it's "Africa" hot, get off the water for awhile and fish into the night.Fish are eating bucktais, topwater and 'Dawgs.Prepare for success and have a blast.

Also, how would you work them? Straight retrieve, twitch???

Jim,

My 2 best Dawg colors are pearl white and walleye.I'm throwing strictly Mags with the occassional Pounder.We use a lot of straight retrieve but as the water has warmed, ripping over, through and around cabbage has produced fish. Make contact with the cover if possible. Good luck and have fun!! Steve

Fished from noon-midnight on Friday. Fished vineland bay, 3 mile roof, big point, flamingo reef, wahkon bay, spirit island, and a couple of bars on the south side. Had 1 follow on vineland bay. East winds and clear skies. This is probably the worst weather to fish in, isn't it? confused.gifVineland bay was very dirty. The east side was pretty clean. Maybe I will try again some other day.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
