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.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
