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.

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
