Forest Lake turn over

13 posts in this topic

Anybody chase muskies out here after turn-over? I have been out earlier in the season here without much luck. Do they go deeper or hang out near remaining weeds?

I was out Saturday AM. Had 1 follow 40"+ on a jackpot. Had one 40"+ chase a 4"texas rigged senko up from about 10' while Bass fishing and had a tube bit off in about 3' near a dock. Again a good fish. Water temps were 52-54.

I have been duck hunting on willow point and see muskie fins every once in awhile pass through the decoys. I am waiting for them to take one down someday lol.

Matty, You can hunt the old township boundries but there are very limited spots and sometimes the neighbors get a bit pouty. Nice to hear from you, the goose you gave me was awsome. I will have a bit of venison for the lake gatherings this winter. I haven't made it to Mille lacs this fall or I would have called you. I will be out of town tomorrow night through Sunday evening deer hunting in Wisconson. There are about three to four hundred geese that where out in front of the cabin this past weekend over there! I also saw a few mallards and woodies, some goldeneyes and such. Talk to you later, have a great thanksgiving!

Oh yea you can hunt! 1st lake you can hunt the reeds out off the big mansion on the north end. It is 500 feet from the houses so it is legal.

Willow Point is huntable that is where I usually hunt. We had a good hunting out there this year. I was out there every weekend pretty much. Lots of divers. I even shot a really nice drake mallard that is getting mounted.

Third lake you can hunt the cattail point on the north end as well.

The cops have been called buy neighbors to people hunting willow point but the cops cannot do anything. It was even in the paper. They are following all rules and it is still legal to hunt it. I wish people would understand that.

Better hope I don't beat you to the spot first next season. I live just a couple blocks down. I am like a thief in the night getting out there.

BTW willow might not be huntable next season as the new resteraunt is a little closer. I don't know how they would measure it but I thought about stepping it out while out ice fishing with the GPS.

      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?
