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.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
