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

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
