mussky with shadling on nest

12 posts in this topic

I hooked up with a BIG musky on Nest. Had it to boat twice, danced twice got 13seconds of video with digital camera, then knot came loose.

So anyone see musky with blue shadling (type of crankbait) dead take measurements and let me know.

I never caught a 50" fish but this thing had to break that mark.

oh oh watch the boat landing fill up now, not many people new that secret but the locals. those fish were stocked in there many years ago when i was a kid and im 42 now, i once was out there with some freinds, we had a king fisher that would keep flying around the boat till we would throw a dead minnow out in the water. well we were getting ready to leave so we threw all the dead minnows out in the water and that king fisher would pick up as many as he could at one time. well he came back for the second mouth full and when he was picking up a fish a musky came right out of the water and grabed the bird, it was an awsume sight for that bird never did come back up.

There aren't enough musky's in there to fish if you ask me. It was only a few that got out when the DNR ponds in New London flooded and a few musky's got out. Defienetly not a fishable population

Eyehead, I would agree that any muskies in nest lake are rare. If they don't show up in DNR nets then not to popular. But then they don't show up in to many surveys due to the nets used. Harriet lake, in Minneapolis only had 1 and guys beat that lake up hard. I have caught several muskies on harriet my largest was 44.

i really don't know how many are in there because i don't fish muskie, but i have seen them caught there a couple different times. so im going to agree with you guys that it wouldn't be a lake to go looking for muskie. man im so use to the quiet lakes in southern minnesota, then i moved north and the lakes keep getting worse with jet ski's, skiers, and people that have no cares about the fisherman. that is why i started to fish private lakes, and catfishing.

I have fished that lake pretty hard for about 4 years for Pike. I caught quite a few nice ones and some big ones. But in that time I have never caught a muskie. I may of had a follow one time but you really can't tell underwater.

My biggest pike out of there is 39".

In that time I only heard of 2 muskies being caught. One was a 51" (or something) and the other was a small one caught at a resort.

I also have heard of people spearing what they thought was a average size pike that turned out to be a muskie too. They are there, just not a lot.

BTW, Green Lake also has muskies in it.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources invites citizens to learn about proposed recreation opportunities in Centennial State Forest, a 3,394-acre state forest in Cass County donated to the DNR in 2013.  The meeting will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Monday, June 26, in the Walker Community Center Rotary Room, 105 Tower Ave., Walker. Following a presentation at 6 p.m., there will be time for questions and answers, map review and comments. Minnesota state forests are classified into three groupings for off-highway vehicle (OHV) and motor vehicle use: In “managed” forests you may ride on all state forest roads, signed trails and non-designated routes that are not posted closed. In “limited” forests you may ride on all forest roads and trailed signed for specific motor vehicle use. “Closed” forests are open only to highway-licensed vehicles on forest roads. As part of the overall planning process, the DNR is proposing to classify Centennial State Forest as “limited.” The DNR is also proposing to designate approximately 11 miles of forest roads, to allow OHV and motor vehicle use on those roads. Comments received at the meeting will be used to develop a final recommendation that will be submitted to the DNR commissioner for approval. Written comments may be submitted by fax to 651-297-1157, by email to foresttrailplanning.dnr@state.mn.us, or by mail to Joe Unger, Parks and Trails Division, Minnesota DNR, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN  55155-4039. The DNR will accept written comments through Wednesday, July 26. For more information call: Tim Williamson, OHV acquisition and development specialist, Parks and Trails Division, 218-308-2369. Joel Lemberg, Backus Area forest supervisor, Forestry Division, 218-947-3232, ext. 223. For more information, visit the Centennial State Forest webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      The Minnesota United, a new professional soccer team nicknamed the Loons, has teamed up with the Department of Natural Resources to offer licensed hunters and anglers an opportunity to purchase discounted tickets to a home match Sunday, May 7, against Sporting Kansas City.  “We hear the call of the loon while we’re out on the water and exploring on land, and now it also means Major League Soccer,” said Jenifer Wical, the DNR’s Fish and Wildlife marketing coordinator. “If you have a fishing or hunting license now you can get this deal on tickets to a Minnesota United game.” This offer is made possible through a partnership between the DNR and Minnesota United. The discount is available for all price points at TCF Bank Stadium with tickets starting at $20. For information on purchasing tickets, visit the DNR-United page. For questions or orders of 10 tickets or more, call 763-476-2237 or email tickets@mnufc.com. The DNR and soccer team has also partnered on a season ticket offer that supports loon populations throughout the state by way of the Minnesota Loon Monitoring Program. The first 11,842 season ticket holders – one for every lake in Minnesota – have a portion of their season ticket support the DNR’s loon program, and all inaugural season ticket holder accounts will receive a complimentary Minnesota State Parks Day Pass.

      Was out in DL area Saturday....still the same....prespawn staging 8-12 ft but did get some dandies late evening in front of an inlet pretty shallow 4-6ft and they were the most agressive Crappies I've caught this spring.  Mother Nature has dealt us another yo-yo spring up our way and that $uck$

        It's crazy people just have no respect what so ever for the environment or for other anglers.
