Woman Lake Muskies

4 posts in this topic

I will up this weekend doing some Much Anticipated Fall Fishing. The majority of my weekend will be taking part in the excellent fall Walleye bite that happens on Woman Lake.

I wanted to know if anyone out there has some thoughts on the Muskie fishing in this lake? I really want to throw some baits for a few hours some time during the weekend and plan to be on this lake. Is it worth my time to fish Woman for Skies or is that a fluke catch out there? I have heard that the ones in the lake are Trophy size, but there is not a ton of fish.

How about some advice on when and where? I have some thoughts in mind, but can they be fished duriung Mid-Day? Is the best potential going to be early in the morning or late in the day??

I will post how I do, some feedback would be greatly appreciated!

I've been spending a bit of time on woman for muskies this year...just to see if I can find patterns out there. To be honest, the lake is extremely tough to find muskies on. I think for as many hours as I have put in out there, I have had one follow from a mid 30's fish, and I've been all over the lake trying God only knows how many different types of presentations. I have heard of fish being caught out there, but I'd wager they are flukes from people targeting bass or walleyes...

My suggestion: Head to Wabedo/Little Boy area. definitely a better chance to nail one there than on Woman. Get on the deep weedline or some rock humps, and you should find fish, given good weather conditions.

The whole area is really low on water, and with the temps we had this summer, the fishing for muskies has been poor at best.

Good luck if you get out there for them...

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
