A big one

This morning me and some friends decided to take my boat and do a little fishing. We decided on a lake and got the boat in the water at about 8:30 The lake we were fishing supposedly had some good bass action so we decided to hit the banks and start casting away. I was using an 4 1/2" Sluggo. The bass starting biting right away. within the first hour we landed about 15 bass the biggest being 18". As i was tossing and jerking my sluggo next to some offshore bullrushes i felt a strike so i set the hook hard. Whatever had bitten did not move all of sudden a few head shakes. Well lets just say i thought i had caught a state record bass for a second untill i saw a monster muskie surface and them as quick as it came up it was gone. it started taking line by the second, i had my friend follow this big guy around with my electric for a good 10 minutes. finnally after about 15 minutes i got him to the boat and with a great net job from my friend had the fish in the boat. After weighing and measuring him the unofficial totals were 23lbs. 44". Oh i forgot that was the first musky i have ever caught (im from ND just moved here 3 years age) And i was using 6lb test mono. Good fishing everyone. I would like to post the pic but dont know how.

That is great. I had the same type of experience (see the eagle lake post) on sunday morning. Mine weren't as big but I was fishing panfish and caught 3 skies up to 39". Most unfortunately I was alone with no camera. Congrats!!!!! Do you have the fever !!!?!!

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?

      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.

      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
