Hi, I already use squarebill cranking and am looking for a good normal Crankbait. What is the best one?
Has anyone caught any muskie/musky on any of the Horseshoe/Sauk River Chain of Lakes this year?
Opener 2020 tomorrow - anyone here going out? Heck with the full moon tonight this weekend should be really good. If I get to spend some time out it’ll be in central MN. The river maybe, or Alexander. Shamineau is on my list this year as I’ve never fished it at all. Plenty of lakes to try.
I’d like to see what you guys are pulling in this year! Hear some stories or good advice! I hope to have some to share.
I've had an old rapala cd-18 since I was a little guy and the wife has hung it on the wall and won't let me fish with it anymore. Just wondering if anybody knows a store i can go find this at. I've been to the Cabela's in Rogers and owatanna both, sportsman's Warehouse in coon rapids and about every Walmart bait shop and gas station I've stopped at with no luck. Really miss using this lure as it is the most productive thing I've used outside a 3 inch red and white spoon.
Very interesting article regarding diets of muskies and other game fish. I was surprised that the percentage of walleye eaten by musky was as low as it was.
I am starting to collect more and more Muskie lures. What is everyone’s go to colors for fishing muskies in MN?

What is your personal best Minnesota Pike? Were you targeting Pike when you caught it?
Mine is 42" from a shallow lake North of me. It was very skinny for a 42" fish. I caught it while fishing for Bass on a spinnerbait. Water was very warm and unfortunately I wasn't able to revive it. I contrast that to a 42" Pike caught in Canada trolling. That fish absolutely stopped the bait on the strike.
Learned a very good lesson that day. Always have a decent size net in the boat, the fish don't know what species you are after.

By Wanderer · PostedDivers are pushing through. At least the ringers seem to be. I see several flocks of 6-12 birds hauling butt south when I’m out. Like ringers seem to do in this state, they are in high gear and showing no intention of stopping. Had geese at the house yesterday but they’re all gone now. Couldn’t get within range of ‘em.
