Muskie ?

3 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone has had any luck lately in the evenings and night time with the toothy critters?

We did pretty well last Friday evening/1st couple hours of darkness. Fishing rocks of course, Ben landed his 1st Mille Lacs muskie at 49 X FAT. She was very healthy. About an hour later, he set the hook on another cow. The 2nd fish measured 50.5 X 26. An absolute slob.Both fish ate an 11" Curly Sue, white with an orange tail.Working the bait "slow and low", occassionally making contact with the rocks.The boat position varied, but was typically in 6-13'. Both fish were hooked in the corner of the mouth which made the releases much easier. Light winds, a few snowflakes and nobody else around.I like that kind of fishin' in November. Steve

was out on the north rocks yesterday, moved two fish right at sunset(4:40) in 10 fow using a bulldog. my plan was to fish into the night because it was calm and warm, but my trolling motor bats died, that time of year I guess.

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
