Area Musky Lakes

4 posts in this topic

I plan on doing some musky fishing in the Grand Rapids area in the second week of October; either North Star, Moose, or Deer Lakes. I was just looking for some input or considerations for these lakes at this time of the year.

A buddy of mine and 2 of his buddy's from Chicago are out on Deer this week and have been seeing alot of fish, hook ups have been a different story though! grin.gif No certain lure, pretty much whatever they're throwing has had fish following it in. As for depths, from the pencil reeds out to about 20-30 fow. My musky reel crapped out today, so I made the best of it by catching some lm and sm bass in the cabbage beds on crankbaits, nothing big though.

sounds familar. I saw over 20 on Deer in 4 partial days of fishing without a hookup. that water is awfully clear... I did get to see my brother hook a very fat, very pretty 42" tiger though.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
