Water temp is around 63 degrees and the first mayflies have started to hatch here on the North end of Cass. Walleye action has still been good in the evening but since the panfish have invaded the shallows and musky season started...well, who needs walleye right now... grin.gif

Here are some pics of my boats first ski of 2007, it looks like a prop hit her durring the spawn. From what I have seen the muskies are holding on the edges and have not been in the weeds much at all yet.

Wow. I honestly admit I've never seen a more distinctly marked Upper Mississippi strain muskie of that size. Some smaller shorties, maybe... but not one that big. Looks almost like some of the Great Lakes muskies those guys catch on the Lake Erie charters. Beautiful. Good job Brian. Great release photo too.

So are you saying that the fish haven't moved up onto the weedbeds/cabbage? Or are they still hanging in the postspawn areas... like shallow sand flats? Thanks.

Mark

looks like they got a bit to close for action. That is crazy.

Beautiful fish, Brian (besides the nasty gash, poor girl). Congrats!

I might have to commandeer your services for half-a-day when I come up in August (12th thru the 18th). I'd love to hook into a few good musky and walleye. grin.gif

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.
