Muskies and Crappies

Recommended Posts

EsoxCop

I have recently noticed the major interest in anglers all over the state choosing to fish muskies over bass and crappies over walleyes. The number of muskie anglers has risen drastically over the last 5 years and just look at the attention red lake got in its crappie years. I think red attracted many more crappie anglers than it does walleye anglers. We need to get something going and get a lake stocked with muskies in our area to help out with muskie angling pressure (too many anglers and not enough lakes).

- My two cents

I am going to a couple meetings with Musky or Mukie inc and if anyone in the Kandiyohi cty area wants to get it going ,simply attend the St.Cloud Sportmens Show and talk to guys in booth there.

Its going to really get a lot of opposition but it could be done[getting MUSKY in a lake near home]

I hope you would be willing to get on with something[so I am asking ]would you be willing to put a few hours and a couple trips into starting it here???

I will try to help

Can a few of you guys help.

others that oppose maybe could start a site on why not to have them

Go to the fish by species section here {musky]

I read in it that a 60 page paper is written for comprehnsive stocking from DNR and its thoughts show Green or Koronis as 2 of lakes being acceptable for 8 lakes to include musky in the future.

It would include one of these 2 as of now.

great first small mouth, now musky. Hey I agree they are a blast to catch, and I do fish for them, but Green is not a musky lake never has been never will be. They are in there now, and I only say that because I have caught one there it was 34" and I caught it over by the DQ bar 3 years ago. I don't think they can spawn in the lake, and if they can't spawn then they don't belong in the lake. I know they stock walleye's in the lake, but they also repreduce in the lake naturally. So I'd say NO to the musky. So let the fire storm from both side of the isle start.

I'm all for it. It would be nice to have a muskie lake closer to home.

      The ice was very crystallized last night but still 20+ inches.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.
