MUSKIES

Recommended Posts

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.

      I heard that it was still open 10-14 days ago but with this cold it should be making ice quickly.  I was on a bigger lake Saturday and we had 7-8" on a lake that reopened last week when it warmed up.  I'd be very nervous about going across the lake especially crossing any deep water holes.  The next 7 days should be making very good ice though if weather holds true.

      Good share. I'm really itching to get out on some of those local lakes. I was thinking of trying today but I'm going to hold off now.

      Thanks again, Don. Really do appreciate the updates!

      That's what happened to mine too.

      Went out this morning to check the ice on both sides of my peninsula.    Found ice anywhere from 1-4".   The area  found 1" i did not expect it.   There are also small ice heave air pockets with only 1 or 2" of ice on them and open water underneath.   Now with the fresh snow is is very hard to distinguish these little heaves or thin ice.   I am going to wait a few more days here yet and I know the ice here well.   I heard a report of a 4 wheeler on shoe, this is more than stupid.   No fish is worth your life.  Be safe   Don

      Can't get on the lakes yet, but there are still fish in the river.

      You'd get a good laugh at what the consistent check cashers on the ice fishing circuits, have been have been using for years. $4.99

      I am always looking for better ice rods but I hate paying more than 50 bucks

      You could start by calling some resorts.  I've found that sometimes they have some for sale or other people have them for sale at the resort.

      north metro lake had consistent 2-2.5" yesterday around noon. Headed back tonight to check a couple  more lakes.  It would be nice to hit 4-5" before warm weather sets in  later this week
