Pontoon Musky Guide

5 posts in this topic

Hello, I'm looking for the pontoon musky guide on the lake for a large group outing yet this year. Does anyone have a contact number for this outfit. Anything good or bad about them. How many people can fit on the pontoon? Any idea what they charge? Can you also do some walleye fishing? Thanks!

I do not have any contact information for you, but his name is

Gene Miller and he is the postmaster in Isle.

"Sweet Music" Jimmy Meinert runs a pontoon charter out of Barnacles on the North end. Different Jim than the owner. He does muskies and Walleye. I am pretty sure he can handle up to 6 people. You can call the resort and ask about his charter service. He's a pretty good guy. I haven't been up for a few weeks so I don't know how he's been doing lately

(Note from admin,please read forum policy before posting again,Thank-you.)

We went out with Gene Miller on Monday and had a blast. He runs a pontoon out of Barnicles as well. It was a great learning expirence and well worth it. The bonus was a couple nice ski's as well. But i think we had to book almost a half year in advance to get a specific date. Good luck.

I heard about this for the first time last year and it really peaked my curiousity. If you don't mind me asking, what type of baits are you pulling and what type of structure are you going over? I have yet to go musky fishing for fear I will have to sell all my walleye gear once I catch one, but I'm warming up to the idea. smile.gif

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
