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.

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
