Hey Guys,

muskies supposedly there is a few in there.

From the DNR website dated 6/5/00.

Two 30-inch muskie were sampled in gill nets. This species, native to Bad Axe Lake, declined in number when other gamefish species such as northern pike were introduced in the early 1900's. A stocking program from 1950-1969 attempted to restore the muskie fishery, but was discontinued due to lack of a public access. It is likely a few breeding muskie are present, but muskie fry are highly vulnerable to predation and competition from other species. Bad Axe is still a designated muskie lake.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
