Late season French Lake Muskies

2 posts in this topic

My buddy and I are trying to plan a day of Muskie huntin' on French but it looks like we're not finding a weekend that we're both free until late September-early October. I know Muskies are generally a good Autumn fish anyway but has anyone out there fished French late into the year? If so, do the standard muskie equipment and techniques still apply? I only target Muskies occasionally and usually in the summer, so I'd like to know if I need to stock up on anything specific for the day.

I'll let you know the closer it gets to your trip. Fishing bass today only had a lil guy eat a spinnerbait. Its been really slow lately, so its hard to say. Chatterbaits are a start. wink.gif

      Wow that is a little discouraging. Looked at the DNR lake info for the last survey which was done on Big Trout lake in 2011. Not one Laker was caught in any of the test net types! Still shows their stocking them but none showed up. Anyone try it on opener and find any Lakers?

      Anyone go out there last weekend for opener? If so how was the ice and the bite? Giving this weekend a thought?

      I personally like the cold and dont mind it. But this week is a nice change and prob wont help the ice building much!

      I remembered I wrote this question. So I'm replying back. I was lucky enough to have a relative who had a Smith and Wesson Model 66-2 .357 mag (mint condition) that he was willing to part with. I haven't shot it yet. Been busy. Anyway now what recommendations are out there for 38 shells for plinking. I've read about the problems if using to heavy a load. Thanks
