Muskies and Crappies

Recommended Posts

EsoxCop

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.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
