I don't fish for them, but one glommed on to a pesky perch I was pulling in on Norwegian Bay.

Not a reliable judge of size, but from the quick look I got b4 he parted my walleye snell, I'd say maybe just under 35-inches or so.

Pesky perch steal my walleye bait, and pesky muskie steal my pesky perch! What's a girl to do?

Theres no doubt that the increased fishing pressure has caused many of the muskies to change location. I was on the lake last monday night and counted 20+ boats just in big bay tossing big baits. Anything with a buoy on it had a boat fishing it. I have been having some luck finding fish in places you normally wouldn't pay much attention too. I had a nice fish come out from under an old boat house on one of the islands last week chasing a bucktail I was throwing at the rock point next to it. Just start exploring and if it looks like it could hold a fish...toss a bait at it. Good Luck!

      The statistics from my journal for the 2016/2017 spearing season have been compiled. I had 21 sits, on 7 different bodies of water across 3 MN counties (Cook, Washington and Hennepin). Average sit was 4.4 hours. Number of pike seen averaged 1.08 per hour. Along with some old favorites, I added some new spots and 3 new lakes to the repertoire and they ended up being new favorites.    I saw, and passed on many pike over 30 inches. I was fortunate enough to have great views of 4 muskies, and more than a few big bass. Interestingly I only saw one walleye, one bowfin and one carp. Those numbers are down.     Here are a few of my pictures from the past season. Not the best quality, but they are from an old LG slider phone.    A trio for the pan and  the days swim team (Johnson red/white and sunfish; Dennis Bertram shiner). Dave Pawlak spear. Larger pike had been attacked by a bigger fish…she was cut up and scaled ahead of the dorsal fin.      Pike, some panfish and a Kraemer 9 tine spear.      I have a few more pictures of some fish n the hole and will try to add them later when I have time.
