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.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.

      It's true, people were driving out on the river yesterday, but the ice is melting quickly and the current has picked up.  The snow cover is gone and there is about 1" to 2'' of standing water.  This extended warm weather has me worried.   Personally, I think vehicle traffic is "Iffy" now.  Be careful.

      The webcam has been running for a few days now. I was watching it on and off all day yesterday and saw a fair number of vehicles going on and off the lake. But I haven't seen anything yet this morning. I was thinking about going out tomorrow, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I may call Harty's this afternoon and see what they say.
