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

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.
