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.

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
