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!

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
