My wifes Muskie from last week!

7 posts in this topic

I posted this in the Muskie section but I am so proud of the wife I had to post it here as well.

It was a great trip up to Lake of the Woods. I caught a 43 inch musky and thought I was the king of the trip. Boy was I wrong!!The next day my wife Shannon caught this 50X21 inch muskie. She caught it on a fuzzy grub tipped with a leach. Shannnon was using 6 lb test line!!! shocked.gif Sure was a heck of a battle. It took almost 30 minutes to land her. I am happy to report she swam away very strong.Funny thing was that Shannon caught a 36 inch Norther the next day on the same set up. She sure likes to out fishing me!

Dandy fish! sounds like you have a great trip. My wife and I were up there in july and like normal she not only caught the biggest but also the most. And that happens more often than not. But thats what makes it so much fun.

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.

      Thanks All.   No big plans this weekend and and the weather has been putting a damper on outdoor projects and choirs.    Still I might sneak out for a few hours this weekend.

      In and around narrows is where most people were fishing.  Lots of fish under 14 though.

      I guess I will have to call the dnr about the couple spots I am in question of. Ones a darn and you can easily pick them off all day almost year round

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.

      Thanks guys for the informative replies. Can you also comment on the walleye limits?
