Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

I'm thinking about driving up and fishing Mantrap tomarrow and I was curious what the Muskie fishing has

been like.

I have only fished the lake twice this year we really were not evening targeting ski's more pike but managed to get a 40 and 38in ski along with a bunch of northerns between 5-9 lbs. But have been there since late Aug. But we saw couple big Ski's surfacing in the morning in several areas.

fishing high we know you caught those two fish out of season in may but seriously lets post someting with relevance in terms of up to date time frame. i know that they have been catching a few on pearl/nickle showgirls not cowgirl and a few fish on suckers on quickstrike rigs. topwater is a great choice as well on warm afternoons i suggest weagles and vipers a hog wobbler would also be a good choice if you have the patience to fish them. don't be afraid to pull cranks on edges after dark as well.

Hey Guys,

I drove up for the day and the Muskie action was slow. I

had a muskie up on a Double Chopper, She came in real fast

and I went to the L Turn and than she turned away. So I

continued working the spot and nothing. The other fish was

Northern also on Topwater. I was surprised that the fish

were chasing topwater.

Yeah, I am down at Gustavus, haven't been out on French yet. I have been spending most of my time out on Tonka or goose hunting. As far as fish go nothing exciting to report yet. Good luck out on Wabedo and LB. I am pumped for a break from school so I can get back up to musky country.

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.

      Here's my new boat.  Saw probably 30 Verados in the past 3 days on the east and and west ends.

      We had two fishing tournaments this weekend. Walleyes on Saturday and bass on Sunday. I met the bass winners today and talked to them about their walleye win Saturday. That’s right, they won both!  On Saturday, they entered the walleye tournament but just because they were on the lake to pre-fish for bass. They fished with stick baits in shallow water, looking for bass beds. As shallow as 4’. And dang if they didn’t keep catching walleyes. Big ones, including 2 over 26”. 21 lbs. in all. Apparently, they’re pretty good at finding bass, too. Big $ weekend for them!

      Ugly Saturday on Norwegian Bay. One Pike off of Windsock Island, nothing else much to speak of. Cold and windy but finished off with a beautiful Evening. There were a couple of good eyes caught near the north end, a 27" and a couple in the slots but most boats didn't see much. I saw 2 caught in front of the beach at Life of Riley in a matter of a couple minutes.  Sunday morning we met up with some friends and went out of Tower. Dragging bottom bouncers with minnows in 24-32' produced 11 keepers between the 4 of us, largest about 16" and lots of throw backs. Best luck just off of Priest Island. 4 hours of fishing with everyone except me pulling them in the boat until the last 10 minutes I put two in the livewell. I broke off with 10 minutes to go and was going to quit when everyone said "no, keep going!"  Glad I did cause I finished strong and redeemed myself. Never give up!
