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.

      Much different lake from a week ago. Snow on shores and ice in reeds. Water temps were down quite a bit. 42 in main lake 45 in shallow bays. Had a few followers on spinner baits but no hits.

      Went fishing for a couple hours yesterday. Water temp was 48-50. It was a nice day to be out on the water. My arms and neck are a lovely shade of red to prove it. Make sure you're smarter than me and toss a tube of sunscreen in the tackle box before you head out.

      Smoked up 4 for a test and really good!  Quite different than the crappies. Nice and oily and the skin peels right off. Scales are pretty big so a bit of a mess but easy peasy.

      I attended an event Saturday out of Everts. Eye bite was really slow for the 20 boats but a few nice fish were caught. Got into a buncha white bass at the end of the day and it was game on.   Brined some overnight and smoked em up to try them. We thru cranks and swim baits all day.
