proposed 48" muskie reg on Pokegama?

5 posts in this topic

Anyone know what these signs at the landings are all about? I'm sure there are a few nice muskies in Pokey but I 'would by no means consider it one of the better muskie lakes in the area. why the reg.? is the DNR planning on doing some stocking in the lake or what?

Probably because it's a contributary of the Mississippi.

I've long been confused about the question of Muskies in pokie. I've been told that they are and that they are not there. I've heard a report of one being caught but I've talke to three guides that spend a lot of time on the lake and don't believe they're there. Then, about two weeks ago, I swear I saw two boats casting muskie lures by Chisholm. Now a regulation for Muskies posted at the landing?

The Pokie is one of the many lakes the 48" reg is proposed for. I am sure it is because of the Missisippi.

It is because of the Mississippi. They are in there I assure you but with TONS of places to hide they are tough.

My uncle who used to scuba dive in the Navy, spent some time under the water on Poke a few years back (15yrs ago?). He said they saw at least 5 fish that were longer then 36"... He did say one did look very much like a muskie and one looked very much like a pike. He was within 30 feet of each of them as he snuck up behind them.

After that he always brought a water under camera with him...

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
