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.

      Nailed the Crappies last night in 2-3 feet of water!!   They were all 9-10" and skinny runts for the length.   All were catch n release and topped off with a 18 64/65th " bass at dark!!  it was as close as 19" you could go with out being 19" LOL   What a rush on 4 pound test

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.
