Brainerd Area Musky Report

2 posts in this topic

Musky fishing has been pretty darn good the past couple of weeks. They have been biting during the day, and at night on many of the area lakes. We've enjoyed some success on Mille Lacs, Sham, and although I haven't been to Alex myself, I know people that have been enjoying success over there as well. We've been catching them primarily on blade baits....smaller during the day and bigger at night. Virtually all of the fish have come from flats or breaklines associated with weeds. The highlights this week were a five fish night where Brent Peterson caught his first two legal fish of his life. Brent got back to back 46 and 43 inchers. The other was a superfish caught up on lake Bemidji, which measured 55 X 23, and probably weighed somwhere in the neighborhood of 40-45 pounds. This monster came from a wind blown flat at precisely sunset. Brad Engel from the Chicago area was the lucky guy, and I was honored to be in on this fish of a lifetime. I told Brad his fish would look much bigger if he wasn't so dang tall (he's 6'6")...but it still looks pretty darn good to me! Congrats to you guys.

Our fish from Mille Lacs and Bemidji have been pretty girthy and it's only going to get better. Fall fattie time is just around the corner.....good luck to all.

      I am looking at a new portable shelter this year. It would be ideal to get one that fits 3-4 people so I can take my whole family out. I am looking at the clam x400. My concern is the weight. Does anybody have experience lifting this unit up in the back of a truck or dragging it around or to move from spot to spot?  Any suggestions of other shelters to look at would be great. Thanks!

      Just wondering what you guys prefer for fishing fall walleyes down here in southern mn. I know the creek and redtail chubs work great on the northern mn lakes during the fall months but wasnt quite sure if our lakes responded the same down here or if a smaller profile would be the way to go.
