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 for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
