desperate muskie angler!!

Recommended Posts

ironman

Sweating profusly...often finding myself staring out into the distance, visions of big muskie follows and violent strikes. I have muskie fever bad....and the only boat I have is at my cabin on the crow wing river and there's no trailer. If anyone ever has an open seat...weekday evenings...weekends..and need a fishing partner..I'm definitly available!!!! I"ve been a muskie angler for the better part of 8 years and a muskies Inc member for the past two. Got my own gear, plenty O' tackle...just need the means to go. I've reduced myself to begging....but whatever it takes right? It would be greatly appreciated.

Iron man,

I would be more than happy to bring you out. I just started fishing for muskies last year, and the thought of getting a big one on all alone in the boat evokes a bit of shocked.gif. I live in the west metro area, so I hope you don't mind fishing Tonka. I can't get out this week or next (next week I'm headed to Vermillion-Everett bay) But by July, when the walleye bite dies down and the muskies are good and mad, I should be ready to go. Mu boat isn't very big or pretty, but hey, it floats.

Shoot me your number...

And if you can give me a clue as how to fish 'em early on the big V, let me know.

Casey

Casey,

I was up to the big V last Thursday thru Sunday and fished muskies all day on the opener. No hook ups but the 2 follows we had were over cabbage. The cabbage piles are few and far between as we fished probably 20 spots which will hold cabbage in the summer but only 2 had visible cabbage Sat. Those been Muskego Bay and the channel between east & west by the set of 3 green/red bouy's. The northerns were active so you should at least have some action if you don't get into the skie's. Good Luck!

Hey thanks for the invites!! Hopefully something works out. I doned the waders today and went around Round Lake in Eden Prarie...no luck. Water is really up. On the big V muskies...look to your North facing bays...with the dark bottom and dont be afraid to go shallow...but stealth is the key. On sunny days they sun themselves...big plastics???? Good luck up there.

I'll be staying at Everett bay lodge, maybe the ski's will be in shallow, as you say, "sunning themselves". I don't have any plastics...yet. Would like to get a bulldawg, though.

Thanks for the tip.

Hey Ironman, if you want to go out some evening next week, shoot me an e-mail. [email protected]

As for the Big V. I was up there last week, before muskie opener. Saw one sunning herself on top of Merry Go Round.

The bulldog is a good bait..or so I hear..I dont own one. I'm thinking more of bass style plastics..only super sized. They offer quite a variety. Try something like a giant slug go..or lizard. Something you can work slow...s l o w....s l o w. If thats what it takes anyway...hopefully they'll hit whatever you throw...but that rarely happens.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      i havent been out in for atleast a month out there but check out walleye dan's facebook, he usually posts a report weekley; https://www.visitbrainerd.com/blog/fishing-report-july-16-2018/

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..
