Fox Lake Muskies

17 posts in this topic

Anyone been out chasing Ski's? I should be heading down to that area next weekend, just wondering if it is worth trailering the boat over to Fox.

Never fished this lake before...how is the water clarity and do the muskies get alot of pressure?

I haven't either, and I am not sure if my trip down there is going to happen, I have been doing good on Tonka & Mille Lacs so I might just stick with what works.

I don't think they get much for pressure, spirit and Okaboji are probably far better and worth the drive.

I will post a report if I do end up heading to Fox.

Hey lonewolf how's it been going. If you don't remember me i talked with you out on west lake last fall. Anyway west has been hot the last couple weeks. There was supposedly 2 50" fish cpr'd this last weekend. I personally caught 3 ( 37, 40, and 41 )last week. I'm interested it how you do on Fox i wanted to get there over this last weekend but it just didn't work out.

Hey 690VS, I remember talking with you last fall. How's it going? It's been kind of a busy summer for me. Working a lot of overtime, haven't done much muskie fishing lately. Going to try Fox Lake today and tomorrow morning. I'm also planning on taking the girlfriend camping/fishing on the 15th. We are going to be on West Okoboji or Big Spirit. Hopefully she can catch her first muskie. Maybe we'll see you out there again. I'll let you know how I do on Fox Lake when I get back.

That's the weekend of the chapter tournament east, west and spirit will have 50 boats between them. Depending on the bite on where the most boats will be. It's been a good year so far i've got 18 with 10 on spirit and 8 on west with a 47 being the biggest for me this year. I'm really interested in what's going on on fox.I'll keep you informed on what's going on down here.

Any reports coming from Fox. I live over by Marshall and am tired of making some long drives up to Mille Lacs. Thinking of heading to Fox. Lonewolf how have you done this year? I see you are from the Marshall area.

Thanks

I was on Fox Lake all day on Friday. Didn't do very good. Not even a follow. It's nice to see that there are other muskie hunters in the Marshall area. It's been a slow year for me, so far. Haven't been out much this summer. My brother and I are heading up to the Longville area this weekend. Should be good. It's a full moon this weekend. Do you live in Marshall?

I was on fox Sunday from 7am till 2pm seen two small fish. Boy the boat ramp is shallow so if you have a bunk trailer like mine be ready to back your truck all the way in the water.

Wolf,

No I live in the Tyler area. My brother and I have really gotten into the hunt the past few years. Mille Lacs has been our key lake this year. Ya it's good to see other musky guys around here. We may have to get together for an outing sometime.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
