Shamineau Muskies?

5 posts in this topic

Heading up to the Sham on Saturday for the day looking for muskies. Anyone raising any fish or having and look of sorts? Haven't been up there since Labor Day.

Nope. There are no fish in that lake. Stay home. Just kidding. The fish have been starting to become more active as the water cools. I went there twice last week. Did not boat any but raised plenty.

I was out there last Thursday. Lots of dead time but I managed a 42 and a 49 for my efforts. If it hadn't been for those two fish, I would have blanked, with only one follow. Interestingly I had all three fish going within 100 feet of each other.

Shamineau has really been off for me the last couple years. Not sure what is causing it, but I have not had near the success out there the last 3 years.

I think the cooler weather going on now is going to mess them up a little bit. A warm up would probably get them going again.

Thanks for the help. We caught a 39 on Labor Day up there within an hour of starting to fish and raised some nice fish up there. We ended up having to leave early after a faulty battery and not being able to start up our outboard. So after hauling the deep cycle battery from down below to start the motor, we decided we didn't wanna run anymore. But with a new Interstate Cranking Battery ready to go Saturday morning, we should be able to spend some serious time out on the water. Looking forward to it come rain, wind, and nasty weather....just keep the lightening to the south.

Saturday was a nasty day on the lakes! YIKES! During my stint on Shamineau, I had one fish around 40" follow and that was it on Shamineau. We then went over to Alexander and didn't see anything there, but my partner had some type of fish on but was only there for a 5-10 second period. That was all we did besides get cold and frustrated with the driving wind/rain all day.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.
