Muskies-North End

6 posts in this topic

Heading up tomorrow and have never fished the north end. Thinking of launching at Red Door and heading west. Any pointers on where to start and what to look for this time of year would be appreciated. Are they in the weeds on sand or rock right now? Bucktails, jerks or crankbaits? Thanks for the help.

Fished the North End on Tues and Wed... Seen a few fish up along near Wealthwood,east and west of the landing. But it seems the thicker the weeds the better the fishing. Mainly fished the deeper weed edge and the fish were in the weeds themselves.

Fished some rock, nothing seen, but have heard of fish getting caught on rock as well.

I'll also be up there tommorow. What do you suppose this cold front is going to do to the musky's????(lock jaw frown.gif)

Don't know how the bite will change, the usual is that yes fishing gets harder. But just keep a PMA (positive musky attitude) and keep lures in the right spot and you should come into contact with the great fishes of Mille Lacs...

Bucktails, plastics, and top waters were moving fish when I was there... But you may have to put some slower moving baits in front of them...

Jim,

Thanks for the advice. Hopefully we can get some action despite the cold front. I'll post how we do.

Hit the north side for about three hours today. Had one fish on briefly (probably a pike). Too windy and wavey so we headed to the southeast corner. Fished until about 3:30. Caught 2 pike, a largemouth and no muskies. Saw a few walleyes caught and talked to one boat that limited but they fished all day to do it. They were using leeches. Good luck!

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.
