Muskies???

Couple buddies and I have a trip planned for the weekend at the Red Door. I was wondering if anyone's had any action on the north end or are we going to have look elsewhere? We were up before in mid-August right after the big tourney and managed only one fish(48.5) out of 5 boats thanks to a wonderful cold front and dropping water temps. Hoping for a more productive trip so any information at all would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The North End has been a bit slow lately from what I've been hearing, although Garrison and the Myr Mar areas have been producing some really nice fish, including a 55.Weeds and rocks have been key for my boat.Big rubber and big blades, and yes, the fish are still eating after dark.Good luck and be safe.

Fished Malmo area and 3 mile reef, and only seen a few fish. Fished last night till midnight, and this morning in the rain before the storm hit hoping for action and only a couple follows and a few fish porposing. Kinda strange to see. The cold front may have had a bit to do with the slow bite being it was almost 70 yesterday and when I left the lake at 11am today it was still only 45! Chilly morning.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
