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.

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
