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!

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
