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.

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.

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.

      Thanks Cliff! I've been very closely monitoring Pike Bay the last few weeks I'm not far from you as the crow flies right on the bay. Still sitting at 4-5 inches of ALL refroze slush. No good ice. It's flooding over pretty good with 1-3 inches water with the couple inches snow still on top. Hopefully the cold penetrates that snow and gets things going so I can run the sled right up the bay to McKinley by next weekend.

      The ice on the small pond on the west side of the road heading into SJU was able to hold my weight (which is substantial, alas).  I didn't have a chisel, and I wasn't about to go any further out.  Still, very good sign.  I'm sure there'll be guys out by the end of the weekend, if not sooner.
