Rumors of dead muskies

9 posts in this topic

Last night I heard a report of six dead muskies speared out of Deadshot Bay on Big Detroit Lake. I got this information second hand and can not confirm it. However, it came from a source who I believe had accurate information.

Not trying to start a "spearing is bad" post here. Just trying to pass along the information and ask that people keep an eye out for illegal activity. If you see something "fishy", report it.

I hope it is not true but I will keep my eyes and ears open.

While I am not a muskie fan, it is really stupid to do something like that. It is like those dummies that spear walleyes and call them white-finned northerns ... They think they are sooooo funny.

Zombies.

to me spearing just removes all the brood stock of the species and is not a good deal-----my .02

I dont spear, and i really dont care if people do it as long as they mark where they have been. But deffinatly on the conservation side of things, that really stinks, there is no reason that people have to throw fish like that back if they are too small.

Man, if this is true, it really stinks! I am not against spearing either....as a matter of fact I tried it for the first time last winter and thought it was a blast.

Scoot, please post if you find out if this is true or not.

Take care

I'll see what I can find out, I drive by there every day; I'll stop and chat with some spear house fishermen.

Thanks for checking it out, Peter. Also, thanks for the e-mails Dead. I appreciate the concern.

Cliffy- I very much doubt I'll get any more info on the topic. If I do, I'll post. However, I don't expect to hear any more.

      Went up north today with @eyeguy 54 and we found plenty of ice if the access would have been better we would have driven out. We fished hard as both of us have similar fishing styles. We jump hole to hole picking off the aggressive fish with plastics. The wind did not do us any favors but we still caught a good number of fish. If eyeguy took photos maybe he will post em. Thank you eyeguy for the call I wanted to get out fishing today.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.
