Slow Muskies

3 posts in this topic

Is it just me or has the muskie fishing been off? This has been the slowest week I've had in 10 years. The water has lots of bloom in it but that hasn't been a problem in the past. Makes a guy feel like he's losing his touch!!!! Luckily the walleyes have cooperated..

Your not alone and you probably havn't lost your touch. My take on the situation is that July was such a banner month that the fish are still recovering from it, at least the ones that made it. Saw too many floaters in July... Sad.

thats very disturbing news..like I said going in 2 weeks .besides hoping the musky fishing picks up..i hope the whole musky population isnt dwindling because of so many floaters not to mention all the reports of spearing and shooting...lets hope their all ok....terribly sad

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
