8 posts in this topic

Hey Guys,

I'm thinking about driving up and fishing Mantrap tomarrow and I was curious what the Muskie fishing has

been like.

I have only fished the lake twice this year we really were not evening targeting ski's more pike but managed to get a 40 and 38in ski along with a bunch of northerns between 5-9 lbs. But have been there since late Aug. But we saw couple big Ski's surfacing in the morning in several areas.

fishing high we know you caught those two fish out of season in may but seriously lets post someting with relevance in terms of up to date time frame. i know that they have been catching a few on pearl/nickle showgirls not cowgirl and a few fish on suckers on quickstrike rigs. topwater is a great choice as well on warm afternoons i suggest weagles and vipers a hog wobbler would also be a good choice if you have the patience to fish them. don't be afraid to pull cranks on edges after dark as well.

Scorp,

throw up some results if you get a chance, would like to hear how other musky hunters are faring, since I haven't been out for a while.

Hey Guys,

I drove up for the day and the Muskie action was slow. I

had a muskie up on a Double Chopper, She came in real fast

and I went to the L Turn and than she turned away. So I

continued working the spot and nothing. The other fish was

Northern also on Topwater. I was surprised that the fish

were chasing topwater.

Yeah, I am down at Gustavus, haven't been out on French yet. I have been spending most of my time out on Tonka or goose hunting. As far as fish go nothing exciting to report yet. Good luck out on Wabedo and LB. I am pumped for a break from school so I can get back up to musky country.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
