Musky Report

Recommended Posts

Tim_Anderson

We've been getting some really big fish lately. Last night's 54 incher really topped things off. We've had a few bigger ones in the boat, but never caught by me. This is my new personal best at 54 x 23. Guess I'm slowly inching my way up!

Pretty cool story to this fish. I had come in and finished my figure 8..switched hands and began to lift my bait out of the water. This fish came streaking in from the side from out aways...I could see it in the moonlight. I had pulled the bait out of the water and was heading into my next cast. There was no time to re-enter the bait. The musky came flying out of the water, and took it right out of the air! Of course, I had my drag down tight, and the fish had basically hung itself. Pandemonium hit, but I quickly got the spool released and got her away from the boat. The rest way pretty textbook. Good net job. Quick measurement and two pictures, and she was on her way.

We've been trying to catch them during the day, but most of the catching has been at night. As always, blades are doing the trick. They seem to be coming at sporadic times...sometimes first dark...sometimes well into the night. All you can do is put in your time. I heard of several other big fish being caught this week. We got a 51 incher as well a few days ago.

Good luck!

One of those fish came from the East and one from the west. Both sides have been producing a few fish, but the bite has been far from consistent and patternable. good luck.

Chris,

You must have been fishing with Steve, huh?

Yeah, the fishing has been very hard work lately. I think I fished the pond for over 40 hours this week. She gave up three really big fish for us...54, 51 and 50. But the rest of the time, there was absolutely nothing going on. Very few follows. Isolated big fish. And we were fishing around the clock...morning, noon, night, and all night. We've been all over the lake. Many friends have been experiencing the same thing, or even worse. It really leaves me scratching my head. The only thing I can come up with is that more fish than usual are still out in open water, and more than usual, most of the fish are feeding out there as well. One things for sure...they sure as heck aren't starving! All the fish we've caught have been really healthy.

Gotta go. Mille Lacs is calling me again. Maybe I'll try some open water trolling.

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..
