Crane Muskies & Pike

6 posts in this topic

Hello everyone. I'm going to be heading up to Crane for the first time in early September. I want to target Muskies and large Pike. I love these species like a dog owner loves dogs, so I'm strictly catch and release. You can bet that any fish I catch will be put back for you all to catch another day. Can anyone point me in the right direction on where these fish can be found on Crane? Any techniques and patterns would also be appreciated. I'd also like to know what the water clarity and color is up there, so I can prepare on which baits to bring.

Crane does have Muskies. Although I don't know how many. If you look up some of the Crane Lake Resorts they have pictures of them that were caught on the lake. I sure hope they move into Nam and Kab eventually!

I would call up to Pine Point on Crane or Nelsons Resort and ask them they should be full of knowledge about this subject.

      Another beautiful day on the ice Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy Scott got a couple of nice ones- a 28" and a 29".

      Are you saying people with better reports are being dishonest?

      Sounded like a good mix of fish.    The walleyes I lost were because I couldn't get a good enough hook set on em.  I was using my light action crappie rod with 2 lb test.  Even the ones I iced had the hook come out while the fish were in the hole.  I was just quick enough to get a hand on em.   I tried the same presentation on a walleye rod with 8 lb test and never actually got bit.
