Musky Report...fishing has been awesome!

5 posts in this topic

Have been fishing muskies all over the area the past few weeks, and the fishing has been outstanding. My highlights have been helping several people to not only catch their first musky, but to also catch the biggest musky and/or fish of their lives. I just love being "in on that". As you will see from the pics, much of this has been a night bite. Bucktails and spinnerbaits have been working well. Most of the fish were caught shallow in 3-10 fow in both weeds and on rocks. The fish continue to get girthier, and the best fall bite is yet to come. Temperatures continue to hover in the upper 50's, so we're waiting for that temp drop that will spur the fall feeding binge and cisco spawn. Congrats to all the successful fishermen!

Jeff's first time musky fishing, and his first musky was a 53 incher. And yep, that's the moon coming up over his right shoulder. Apparently Jeff has pretty good karma....might as well pick a new hobby and give it a whirl!

Kevin, Jeff's lifetime fishing and hunting partner with a nice healthy 43 incher. Nice job guys.

Happy birthday to Zach Hobson. His parents bought him the guide trip, and this 49.5 incher was his first musky and ultimate birthday gift. It was an interesting night fishing in the rain. Congrats Zach!

Zach's buddy Mike, also with his first ever musky. Check out the girth on this 45 incher! Nice job Mike!

Matt Holbrook with perhaps the fattest 41 incher I have ever seen. This was a remarkable fish, and one that has the genetics (and appetite) to be one of those 50 X upper 20 something fish In about 10 years. Matt, lets go catch this one again!

Steve with one of five fish from our multiple musky night. It don't get much better than this.

P.J. Brennan with his first ever musky (42 inches), and a nice one at that. This one was caught on light tackle, which made for a great fight. Way to go P.J.

Craig Walters with his first ever musky. Another nice first fish at 43 inches. Small rapala, no leader, and no net. Great fun!

And last but not least, Paul with a nice upper 30's fish. It was great fun fishing with you guys!

If you're thinking about trying Muskie fishing, Tim is definitely the guy to call. I've been lucky enough to fish with Tim twice this year, and I've learned more about fishing for Muskies than I ever thought possible. What's even better is that you not only learn, but you get plenty of action too. A few weeks ago we were able to catch and release 3 very nice muskies, with many other follows. This was more exciting than I ever imagined for my first ever night fishing excursion. Not only is Tim a great teacher, but he's a class act. He makes it a personal mission to help you catch your first or biggest muskie. You can't ask for anything better than that!

Yeah I couldn't agree more. I went out with Tim in the past few weeks and had a blast. We dealt with the bad weather and ended up finding the fish after all. I was able to catch the biggest fish of my life with Tim, and had a lot of fun in the process. If you are thinking about chasing the musky anytime soon, and having a great time doing it, I would definitely say to give him a call.

      7/20 day 6 Today was was the feast day. Spending most of the day hanging on shore visiting and eating the weeks catch of fish for lunch and burgers and salads for supper.  Some water time for the kids and the wife.  Avas' parents also drive up to spend the evening around the fire.  It was quite the family affair.   Fishing today was targeted towards finding the big panfish for my folks to catch.  This plan was an utter failure.  Both boats out this evening and no one could find the panfish!  Frustrating to say the least. I decided late in the evening to go back after walleyes to try and put the folks on some fish.  I ended up boating only 1 northern 20", Dad landed a 18", 17", and 14" walleye, while mom boated a 14" walleye, and 2, 8" bluegills.  Not bad for a fall back plan the last hour and a half.   7/21 day 7   Today was a day to say goodby to My folks and the borther and sister inlaw.  As well as to start to sad action of packing up and being ready for our trip back home early the next morning. Our late afternoon was interupted by a nice strong thunderstorm that would rattle cabins, dump a ton rain, and light a couple of trees on fire around the lake from lightning strikes!  Also leaving us without power for 7 hrs.  It was a good storm. With the kids off to a movie, and the in laws on shore with boat.  It was just me off to lake for one last fishing outing after the storm.  With only a little over an hour fish i hit our standard walleye spot.  With old faithful providing me with two small walleyes 12" and 14".  The darkness came and fishing for the week was over.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      Yeah I like decoys this thread used have some on here. I will try to hit a show Thank you

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
