Muskies and Crappies

7 posts in this topic

I have recently noticed the major interest in anglers all over the state choosing to fish muskies over bass and crappies over walleyes. The number of muskie anglers has risen drastically over the last 5 years and just look at the attention red lake got in its crappie years. I think red attracted many more crappie anglers than it does walleye anglers. We need to get something going and get a lake stocked with muskies in our area to help out with muskie angling pressure (too many anglers and not enough lakes).

- My two cents

I am going to a couple meetings with Musky or Mukie inc and if anyone in the Kandiyohi cty area wants to get it going ,simply attend the St.Cloud Sportmens Show and talk to guys in booth there.

Its going to really get a lot of opposition but it could be done[getting MUSKY in a lake near home]

I hope you would be willing to get on with something[so I am asking ]would you be willing to put a few hours and a couple trips into starting it here???

I will try to help

Can a few of you guys help.

others that oppose maybe could start a site on why not to have them

Go to the fish by species section here {musky]

I read in it that a 60 page paper is written for comprehnsive stocking from DNR and its thoughts show Green or Koronis as 2 of lakes being acceptable for 8 lakes to include musky in the future.

It would include one of these 2 as of now.

great first small mouth, now musky. Hey I agree they are a blast to catch, and I do fish for them, but Green is not a musky lake never has been never will be. They are in there now, and I only say that because I have caught one there it was 34" and I caught it over by the DQ bar 3 years ago. I don't think they can spawn in the lake, and if they can't spawn then they don't belong in the lake. I know they stock walleye's in the lake, but they also repreduce in the lake naturally. So I'd say NO to the musky. So let the fire storm from both side of the isle start.

I'm all for it. It would be nice to have a muskie lake closer to home.

      Cannons a go good 3 inches where I check and two guys out 100 yards

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
