Pool 4 Musky

Recommended Posts

Ben P

Looking for any information on finding muskies in pool 4 of the mississippi. I've been fishing pepin and the backwaters up from wabasha with both fly and gear tackle for about a decade now and have never targeted muskies but i want to try to target them this fall. Any info is appreciated.

Few, if any muskies down there. You’d be better off either zipping up to Lake St. Croix or getting a WI license and fishing the Chippewa River.

      Good report rayguy!  I have heard from many lakes in the area that the sunnies are just getting onto their beds!!  The armada will sure be out in full force this weekend as the fourth always draws a major crowd out there!!  Great for sight seeing but not so much for fishing...on calm days if you can get over to trout lake the whitefish have been biting on jigging raps in the 60 ft range.  troll till you see a bunch of fish in 40+ ft of water and start jigging until your rod bends over!!!  great fish for the smoker!!!  Good Luck

      Found the walleyes during the afternoon today. Wind blown rock reef. 8 feet of water. Bobber and leech. All the walleyes had perch minnows in their bellies. We caught 11 and kept our 8. The one pictured was 23 inches.

      Just got back from another 5 days. Fishing was ok. Little more warm as and humid then I like but survived. Skeeters weren't real bad but the deerflies are getting to be real annoying.

      Well here is my two cents.  Have done a lot of fishing and not much catching.  Been very windy and now feels like a oven so its a hard bite. Walleyes we have caught have been fairly shallow.  Most on live bait but a couple on shad raps.  No real pattern ,  one here and one there. Bass are more active.  Morning has been good for them.  The past weekend I think its the most pontoons and wake boats I have ever seen on Whitefish.  Big fishfly hatch the last few days. This weekend you better get up early cause the armada forms about 10:00 am.  One strange thing is we still have sunnies on nests around our dock.  Very late for that.  So guys keep your eyes open as there are some crazies out there buzzing around.  Happy fourth!

      The Leech Lake walleyes are on the move and our guides have been chasing them! With a recent fly hatch and some heat moving in this week has been a grind but we are still finding limits. A few keys to putting fish in the boat have been the location, the presentation and the wind.   Most of our fish have been on Sucker bay and the main lake. Duck point, Ottertail point and Stoney point have all been good and putting out fish. We have been focusing on the 11-14 feet of water and covering ground has been important. Both Duck and Ottertail points have nice break lines that top out around 8 and bottom at 20, which, is what we have been focusing on. Try to run your boat along the break line and make note of where the fish tend to be. If they are on the top of the break fish there and likewise for the deeper water.   Our presentation of choice, when the wind allows it, has been bottom bouncers with spinners. Gold, pink and white, and green have all been getting the Leech Lake walleye guide fish in the boat. Try to run these at 1.3-1.8 mph with just enough line out to “bounce off the bottom.”   The wind has been a nice advantage the past few days. Use the wind to push your boat along the desired path for a nice easy drift. As stated above the places we have been focusing on are actually in the same area but with different layouts. this allows you to make sure you are fishing in the waves and not in flat calm water. As you may know, leech is very clear so on a flat calm and sunny day it can be tough. Find the waves and find the action.   We do still have some openings for July yet. Give us a call to see what we have open. https://leechlakeguideservice.com Dennis Carlson with his Biggest walleye 27 inches. Caught on a green spinner rig

      There are sturgeon in all parts of the river, but Stillwater to Bayport is really gonna be your best shot at catching one.  Especially right around the Excell Energy plant.  Good luck.

      I used to fish right below the Grays Bay dam on Lake Minnetonka when I was kid.  We caught all kinds of fish there.  I often wondered if a guy could start there and float further down on Minnehaha Creek in a kayak.  It sounds like its quite possible, especially after a good rain like we just received.  Might be worth a try.
