Muskies?

Recommended Posts

garage_logician

I will be up in the area the week of the fourth and plan to get out to chase some Muskies. Any information that you care to share (locations, presentations, techniques) would be much appreciated. I have been on the lake several times but we have always fished walleyes, this will be a first for Muskies.

Thanks!

We will be staying in Greenbush. We can launch most anywhere but along the south and west side would be the closest points for us. In the past I have fished out of Zippel and near the Rainy on four mile bay and in the river.

In short, I would launch from whereever would give me the best access to Muskies. We are going to be North for the week but our jaunts up to the Lake will be for the day. We are planning a day up there for Walleyes and a day for Muskies. (or more if the fishing is good. :-))

You'll have to leave American waters and get up into the Canadian side of LOW to find any fishable numbers of sklunges. Going out of the Angle or East to Sabaskong would be your best bets- Angle would be closer.

I fished this past weekend and struggled. Our boats caught two fish- a 35 and a 45. I saw some big fish, but not very good numbers. In the area I was in, there wasn't good cabbage growth compared to most years. Very little cabbage, in fact. However, I put on some miles and found tons of cabbage in other areas of the lake. Therefore, I didn't see many fish in cabbage because I mostly didn't have adequate growth in the areas I spent most of my time in. I saw fish on classic non-weed spots- saddles, points, and reefs. No pattern to anything it seemed. Sorry, I'm not more helpful, but like I said- I struggled to find fish this weekend. Most years I'll see three of four times as many fish as I did this past weekend.

Put a nice one in the boat this past week Near Oak Island. When we go up we ususally take an hour or two each day from fishing walleyes to cast for them.

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.
