MUSKIE OPENER

3 posts in this topic

Any realistic tips for Minnetonka for opener? I've never fished this early in the season for Musks. Usually I'm a fall Muskie guy. Ive had some success in the fall with cast and retrieve with large colorful bucktails. Is the Spring time any different. Are the patterns usually deeper? Early morning??? Any decent info would be really appreciated.

You'd probably do better if the you fished with two hands instead of one hand on your rod and the other holding a beer Z daddy. grin.gif My boat is ready this Saturday, but I have a wedding. Lets try to get together the following weekend and chase the skies around.

Hey Seabass... Maybe youd have caught more with a hand on a beer. grin.gif Seems to always work for me. crazy.gif The secret lake is producing volumnusly. Many "specie". Caught a 5lb bucket on Tuesday night.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
