Mantrap this morning

3 posts in this topic

Guided this morning on the 'trap, it was pretty good saw 14 fish and had 4 of 5 hits with one hook up (lost shortly after that). It was fun and i think the clients had a blast, any way water looks good and the cabage is really strong. Jonah

I'm heading for the "trap" with my dad for 2 days of CPR fishing, well at least I hope we CPR. Any tips?? Where you using live bait?? I've heard a "tale of the trap" Find the bluegill and you'll find the big guys! Any truth to that. Might you have any openings for a little guiding for some nebbies to the trap, but semi-trained muskie guys. you can PM if you have any time tues or wed.msmurphy@cableone.net

My buddy and I were out there this weekend casting spinner baits and rapalas and spinnerbaits for what ever species we caught a good number of largies and a lot of good northerns. We also had three follows by some real nice like ski's one was probably over 45in. Everyone else we saw on the lakes were all throwing huge artificial lures. Ive only fished trap twice so that really all i know about the lake. Our first trip fishing for largies and pike before muskie opener my buddies landed these two guys on 1/4 jig heads one on a grub other a power worm. Good luck with your trip.

      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?
