Any Muskies?

6 posts in this topic

Has anyone caught any muskies on any of the local lakes this summer? I heard of a 50+ incher caught on Norway.

I've never heard of or seen a musky in Norway. There's some big pike, though.

norway way back when was stock with muskies. I've heard over the years that they never reproduced.

Yeah, I heard the same thing, but not sure if it is true.

The guy who supposedly caught the 52" muskie had told my wife the story when she was loading the jet ski and he was loading his boat. He caught it fishing sunnies. No pics or

anything though. The neighbor said he is a story teller. My buddy and I have fished the lake for numerous years and never heard of or have seen 1 caught.

My family has had a place at Dilley's resort on West Norway for 25 years and fished it nearly every weekend May - September during that time. We've never seen a muskie on Norway but have heard the same thing mentioned earlier (that some were stocked and never reproduced) and have also heard people say they've caught them. I suppose it is possible however not real likely.

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff
