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.

      when i fish for pike or muskie i use 40-50lb braid and an 80# fluoro leader about 12" that I make myself...never had a bite-off and have reused leaders over and over again...oh, and have caught plenty with this set up

      Should I look for the cats more in deep holes now or more in shallow by bridges etc. Don't want your spot just general info. I know they can be any where but I'm thinking deep? Also would fat heads be a good choice now.

      Well my ice season ended, it was an extremely short year, with not alot of opportunity to get out. Still caught some good fish and had some good times with friends, enjoy the video!

      I'very never heard of anyone getting into them.  But I do see them cutting the surface early morning or evening.  Might be able to get a few on a fly rod.

      There's a few really good cat spots in that stretch.  It won't be long and it will all be open.
