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.

      Not sure if some mentioned Sierra Trading Post. I buy my Costa's there and have always paid right around $50.00 for them.  Sign up for email and get a discount flyer, they always are having a sale and free shipping etc.

      All eyes on the forks now. Weather looks perfect for a steady slow release. Minimal impact this year but I'd bet this weekend and next week will be the worts of it.

      The MN DNR website shows the Big Fork just opening up upstream and the Little Fork open for about half of it's length upstream. Flows are high but have been higher in past years so may not be high enough to cause problems. I would think within 4 -5 days one will be able to tell how severe the spring rise in the Forks will be. If the upstream gages begin to drop soon it will be a good sign as it will indicate the big push from upstream is past.

      Got a Abu Garcia veritas medium heavy 7 foot rod paired with a revo sx 7:1 I believe ratio. Will this be a good spinner bait rod? I might play with some bigger bass jigs or 3/8 jig heads with swim tails. I have 2 other rods 7 foot mediums, one for cranks moderate fast action with Revo winch,  and the other all around use a veritas with revo s 6:4 also. tired of having to retie all the time. Should this work? I don't do the big football jig things much. and have spinning rods for wacky and small jigs. Just trying to get a better system worked out Thanks guys. Lots of help on here.

      Yes, good report!   I travelled 210 from Brainerd to Duluth and see the ice is getting dark but has only pulled away from shore in a few areas.  I didn't see anyone fishing but did see a few auger piles on the ice.  The piles suggested maybe 10-12 inches of ice.  It'll go soon.   One thing for sure is the stores are DONE with the ice season.  I picked up some custom rods from Northlander and want to put reels on em for this weekend but can't find any in lines anywhere!  Called around too.  Same story - all packed away to get the summer stuff out.
