Bald Eagle Muskies

5 posts in this topic

Is there anyone having any luck on the muskies, and how greens the water this time of year?

Just came off Bald Eagle this morning. The water is really green all over except a few spots in the middle of the lake. The shore lines are thick with algae and weeds. Fish are not biting as well as 2 weeks ago.

Caught 2 decent bass in a 3 hour window, slow bites and warm water as the day goes on.

The water on Bald eagle is VERY Green, and I've been having luck with the skies. It's slowed recently, but I'm still having lots of follows, lots of swirls on topwaters, and a few hookups, including 2 over 48.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
