What times of day are the musky hitting best? I'll be up there the 13th - 15th and would like to finally catch one. I usually fish for them mid-day and right before sunset.

My experience with having muskies follow on Vermillion (I haven't caught one on Big V yet) is that morning or evening are good times most days. If it is overcast it seems like they are a little more active durring the middle of the day than if it was clear.

I will be out with a group in that same time frame you are talking about. I am hoping at least one of us can get one in the boat too. grin.gif

Agree with Casey. Dinner till dark if you know how to get back to resort without running aground is a great time.

Have caught them at all times, but early morning and late evening seems to be the best for me. If they're not going during the day, give them a try after dark. GPS will help you immensely, otherwise I'd be awfully careful driving around out there after dark.

mine was near shore. Too heavy to get in the boat with just me. So I didn't measure it. Probably best for the fish, but I would have liked to know. It was in the same class as the 51 incher I saw that the DNR trap netted.

Action has been still a little slow for me so far. I boated a nice 49" on a small reef last week but I havent even been seeing the followers I normally do. I dont think they have moved out to the mid lake stuff in full force yet but then again I havent been able to put alot of time in during "prime" hours so maybe the fish are there but not active at the times I'm tossin baits.

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?

      tried this last year,   not worth it in my opinion.    But I always wondered if I could eat the rusty crayfish.  has anyone tried?
