I most certainly could be incorrect, but stocking doesn't strike me as something that would be done in the middle of winter. confused

WBL gets stocked alot period. Their is a rumor it got stocked with a lot of walleyes recently because the governor's fishing opener is out there this year. I dont know if I buy into that.

Muskies Inc tossed a couple hundred muskies in there in the fall. But that is the last stocking that I know of happening. Like others said, it is kinda hard to stock a lake in the winter.

All stocking info should be listed on the DNR website. Unless you are trying to start a Conspiracy theory!

I heard same rumor. One would think they would stock it a couple years in advance for that. I was out last weekend and caught 4 walleyes, but combined I bet they would have had a tough time making 16". I can't believe they would want the gov. to catch 4" walleyes.

I've seen the DNR stocking in winter. They just drill a couple holes and start pouring the buckets in.

Was out there with a buddy about a month ago and got about a dozen or more walleyes. Only a couple were keeper material.

Maybe all the little walleyes are feed for the big muskies??? j/k you muskie guys out there!

The last stocking report was from 2007, and here is what was included:

35 adult muskies weighing 145 lbs

11 fingerling muskies weighing 7 lbs

65 adult walleyes weighing 109 lbs

21,488 fingerling walleyes weighing 1475 lbs

2,935 yearling walleyes weighing 1118 lbs

I couldn't find any 2008 stocking reports. On the DNR page you can put in county, select a year, and see any stocking reports for lakes that received fish. Here's the link:

Is the muskie fishing any good out there? Couple guys i know said that all they can get is follow ups because of all the pressure. True?

      So the weeks betwixt point and click and smoke pole deer hunting always have my ire up to get that last Musky Missile into my hands.  Gotta scrub that slime into my glove until next year.  Going to give the Mississippi below Falls a try here in a few hours.   Might find it frozen, might find a spot to get in.   I'll bring my boat because I'm an optimist,  but I'll bet the kayak is where i end up.    Wish me luck, otherwise I have a scheme on my mind for my favorite frozen central mn musky lake.

      On the main basin... Ice is making progress and now covers Lake of the Woods. Satellite images from 11-17-18 show the majority of the lake locked up with various pockets of open water. A very welcomed sign, but way too early to be on the main lake. Some spearing for pike taking place on Bostic Bay. Spearers are often the first on the ice. Please use resort marked trails and exercise safety precautions as ice thickness is varied. On the Rainy River... The Rainy River and Four Mile Bay is frozen over with various pockets of open water. Currently, higher than normal current. Areas of the river locked up earlier in the week. Up at the NW Angle... The NW Angle is locked with ice. Higher than normal current. As always, neck down and other areas with current are iffy. Mainly airboat traffic between islands thus far. Work through resorts and stay on staked resort ice trails when ice fishing begins. Safety first. We are getting closer!
