Muskies 2020


Wanderer

Recommended Posts

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 went out Saturday for a couple hours and only caught hammerhandle northerns. I am hoping to get out again this weekend and give it another try.

Good luck!  It’s looking like my Ontario trip won’t happen and other things have been popping up around home to keep me on shore so far.

Slipped out for a few hours this evening to Shamineau.  My first time on the lake.  It’s almost stunning how people’s cabins and homes are slowly flooding with the continuous rising water.  Felt pretty bad for them.

 

Didn’t see any skis.  Stopped a few times to play with bass and panfish so I wasn’t skunked!  I’m an unashamed opportunist when it comes to catching something.

You’re on the board!  Nice fish. ?

 

I've decided to get a replica of it made.  At first I was hesitant because the cost just about gave me a stroke, but enough people have talked me into it now.  I'll probably catch a pure strain bigger than this someday, but not a tiger.  They simply don't grow nearly as big.

Circling back on this, as I picked up my replica of this fish from LAX Reproductions in Conover, WI, and put it up on the wall.  I also caught another tiger muskie on Saturday in the rain, a 37 incher.

Geez they did a nice job.

 

Good looking fish - congrats!

 

I didn’t even remember starting this thread!  No muskies for me in 2020 and so far not in 2021 either.  But then I gotta go fishing for them sometime!

 

I had an invitation for this morning but I wasn’t in a position to go.  Maybe I can connect for a trip before I get too far into my fall work schedule.

 

Good luck out there for some more!

What's their ballpark $$   I have a 37" released Laker I should have done someday.  Or was that 40" Wanderer?  ?

If you had 16 inch arms I’d call it a 43. ?

 

I remember upper 30’s.  Longer than any one I’ve ever caught.  Maybe not heavier though?  Sometimes I wished we’d carried a scale as often as a tape measure.

 

I still want to get a replica of my 7.5lb smallie but I’m never 100% satisfied with the paint and anatomy on the smallie replicas.  I wish they’d paint them and shape them like the pics and measurements.

LAX Reproductions cost $16.95 per inch (single sided replica).  I had mine on driftwood so that costed extra.  If you have it shipped, you have to pay for that too.  I picked mine up at a muskie expo in Wausau, WI so I saved the shipping cost.  Plus, I was able to walk out of that place holding it and everyone watched me and looked at it.

 

He specializes in replicas of pure strain muskies, but can do almost any freshwater fish.  A 50+ inch pure strain muskie replica would cost you close to 1000 bucks or more, but let's be honest how often are you going to catch a fish like that?  Maybe once or twice in a lifetime?  It took him about 8 months to do mine, which is about twice as long as normal because he was so backed up.  Here's his website: https://www.laxreproductions.com/

 

I feel like there's a decent chance I could catch a 50+ inch pure strain someday, but catching a bigger tiger muskie is very unlikely.  I have caught 18 tiger muskies over the course of the last 5 years and my previous biggest was a 38.5 incher, so this is a rare fish and I look forward to enjoying it for many years.

Apparently someone caught a new state record muskie on Mille Lacs a couple days ago and its awaiting state certification.  They attempted to release the fish but it died so getting it weighed on a calibrated scale was a no brainer.  I'm fully convinced that the state record has been caught out of Mille Lacs many times over the years but all of those fish were released so they could not receive state record certification.  Here is the story and photo.  I'm sure there will be more to come once its certified (or not certified).  If it stands, it will break the record from Winnibigoshish that has stood since 1957.

 

The rumors are true! On November 22nd I set out on the last trip of my season with Kevin Kray and Zack Skoglund to chase the queen. At about 9pm I felt that tap on my Thorne Bros 9’6” XXH I’ve been searching for all fall. After a quick battle and a few ridiculous head shakes we had it in the bag. I didn’t realize how giant this fish was until I pulled it out of the net and immediately called Kevin over to assist with the buddy pictures. It measured an incredible 57.75” in length with a 29” girth. The next hour or so was spent trying to get her to release. Eventually we realized this was not going to happen and made the decision to bring it to a certified scale and crush the Minnesota State Record. She weighed 55 lbs and 14.8 oz. Huge shout out to Austin Tausk and Kyle Dorr for helping me find a place to get her weighed and helping with that process. Also Randy at the UPS Store was the man for being so cool about weighing it for us. I’m so incredibly blessed to be apart of this journey with my best friends.

There was a more in-depth article about this fish in the Star Tribune on Thanksgiving.  They broke through 100 yards of skim ice at the access to get to open water.  The air temperature was 18 degrees.   They were primarily ripping large soft plastics like bulldawgs and medussas, which imitate ciscoes/tulibees.

      On the south end...  Ice has covered Lake of the Woods and in some areas of the lake, ice fishing has begun!  Other parts of the lake need a bit more time but things are moving along nicely.  It is always a good idea to work through your favorite resort or outfitter as ice thickness and conditions vary from one area to another.
      When ice roads / trails open up, it is normally snowmobiles, ATV's and side by sides with collapsible fish houses initially.  As the ice thickens, each ice road operator will announce when weight limits increase.
      Some resorts are getting fish houses out and fishing is beginning this week.  This is happening in areas of good ice that has been checked and marked.  The initial word is fishing is very good!
      Spearing and tip up fishing for pike on back bays has been going well with a nice variety of eaters along with the trophies at over 40". 
      Extreme safety is always important, especially so with early ice conditions.  Each resort / outfitter will share info as it is available.  
      On the Rainy River...  The Rainy River is ice covered.  With the current of the river throughout the year, knowing where and where not to travel on the ice is a must.  Work through resorts / outfitters for safety as some areas are not safe.  
      Pike, walleyes and sauger are being caught in areas where ice conditions allow, back bays and areas with low current that have been checked and marked.
      As the ice gets thicker in December, a snowmobile trail will be staked from Baudette to Wheeler's Point offering travel on the river, Mother Nature dictating of course.  When it opens, stay on the trail for safety.  No trail is marked yet.
      Up at the NW Angle...  Ice is progressing nicely up at the Angle.  Some local snowmobile travel has been happening in marked areas with good ice conditions.  Like every year, there are areas with cracks, current, etc.  Stay on marked trails when things open up.  Ice fishing for some will begin next week.  Check with your favorite NW Angle resort for specifics.
      Travel to and from the Angle via vehicle through the 40 miles of Canada is open.  Must be vaccinated and have a negative PCR COVID Test. Plan ahead with testing or rapid tests are available in Baudette and soon in Warroad.  Once at the Angle, no additional COVID testing is necessary for traveling back south from the Angle through Canada. 
      Want to avoid crossing the border?  Snowmobilers can take the groomed and staked trail across the lake.  Charter transport via bombardiers on the ice trail or flights over the lake landing on an ice runway are available through the LOW Passenger Service and Lake Country Air this winter.

      On the south end...  Ice is forming across the lake, river and bays.  We are moving in a good direction, but need some more time before ice fishing begins.  
      The first spear houses are out on back isolated bays looking for pike.  Some resorts offer spearing packages on Zippel Bay and Bostic Bay.  Work through a resort as ice conditions vary.  One resort reports 5-7 inches on their marked trail but they went around an area with only 1 inch of ice caused by springs.  Safety first.
      Our resorts and outfitters are on the ice daily checking thickness, avoiding springs, cracks, shifting ice, unclear and weak ice, etc.  When the time comes they open their ice trails, stay on the trails for safety.
      The main basin, Big Traverse Bay, is ice covered in most areas.  As most years, some of the shoreline ice is made up of slush that has blown in and frozen.  When resorts / outfitters start grooming, they will smooth the ice out for good ice travel.  We have a good start!
      Many LOW resorts / outfitters are providing ice reports on their Facebook pages this time of year.  These are the experts on the ice and they will let you know when the part of the lake they fish is ready for travel.
      On the Rainy River...  The Rainy River is ice covered.  With the current of the river throughout the year, knowing when, where and where not to travel on the ice is a must.
      Typically, later in December, a snowmobile trail will be staked from Baudette to Wheeler's Point offering travel on the river, Mother Nature dictating of course.  When it opens, stay on the trail for safety.
      Up at the NW Angle...  Angle Inlet and various areas throughout the islands of the NW Angle are ice covered.  A bit of local snowmobile travel in a few areas but no ice fishing as of yet. Things are coming along nicely with little snow.
      Travel to and from the Angle via vehicle through the 40 miles of Canada is open.  Must be vaccinated and have a negative PCR COVID Test. Plan ahead with testing or rapid tests are available in Baudette and soon in Warroad.  Once at the Angle, no additional COVID testing is necessary for traveling back south from the Angle through Canada.

      Looking at possibly getting a new 8" StrikeMaster electric auger. Everyone has them advertised at 549.00.  Anybody getting a better price or extras thrown in? Reeds has a sale if you spend over $400.00, they give you a $100.00 gift card, can't tell if it applies to augers??

      On the south end...  The few anglers who got out this week on the open water had good success but most have put their boats away and are hunting or looking ahead to the ice fishing season.  
      Ice is starting to form but is not safe yet.  As of the writing of this report, bays such as Four Mile Bay, Zippel Bay and Bostic Bay have varying thicknesses of ice.  Ice guides are monitoring conditions daily and make the call when it is time.
      The first houses out will be spear houses on back bays looking for pike.  Some resorts offer spearing packages on Zippel Bay and Bostic Bay.  
      Please exercise safety and caution as ice thickens.  Our resort and outfitter ice guides are on the ice daily checking thickness, avoiding springs, cracks, shifting ice, unclear and weak ice, etc.  
      In some cases, they are actually flooding the ice to thicken it quicker.  The bottom line, we encourage you not to go off on your own but rather use ice guides and the marked trails they have created.
      Ice has also started to form on the big waters of Big Traverse Bay which is a good sign.  Cold temps, wind and snow can all affect progress.
      Many LOW resorts / outfitters are providing ice reports on their Facebook pages this time of year.  
      On the Rainy River...  The Rainy River is ice covered with pockets of open water.  With the current of the river throughout the year, knowing when, where and where not to travel on the ice is a must.
      Typically, later in December, a snowmobile trail will be staked from Baudette to Wheeler's Point offering travel on the river, Mother Nature dictating of course.  When it opens, stay on the trail for safety.
      Up at the NW Angle...  Angle Inlet and various areas throughout the islands of the NW Angle are ice covered with random areas of open water as ice continues to form.  Things are coming along nicely but are not ready yet.
      Travel to and from the Angle via vehicle through the 40 miles of Canada is open.  Must be vaccinated and have a negative PCR COVID Test. Plan ahead with testing or rapid tests are available in Baudette and soon in Warroad.  Once at the Angle, no additional COVID testing is necessary for traveling back south from the Angle through Canada.

      This forum has been pretty quiet lately so I thought I'd start a discussion to see where it takes us. Is it just me or have others had a similar experience this past year? Quite honestly my fishing success this year was not something to write home about. I'm primarily a walleye fisherman and my main mode of attack is a jig and minnow or jig and leech. About two weeks before the MN fishing opener in May, a friend and I did visit Lake Traverse on the SD/MN border and did quite well. That gave me a pretty good feeling going into the open water season but alas it was cut short rather quickly. I struggled to connect with walleyes all summer this year. Was on Vermilion for the opener and we struggled to find enough for a fish fry. Spent the next two weekends on Leech and got the same results. Then we took a trip to Rainy and again we really had to work to put together a fish fry. After that a friend and I went to Winnibigoshish and caught one fish all day, a 23-1/2" walleye but that was it. Couple weeks after that we tried West Battle lake and although we did find a few fish (couple rock bass, small mouth, couple northerns, and a couple sunnies), walleyes were not being cooperative at all. Add to that a few trips to my local Lake Osakis and other area lakes and I really struggled. I did get a couple here and there but they were definitely sparse to say the least. I even tried pulling cranks and Lindy rigs and even tried artificials with virtually no success. 
       
      Anyone else have similar experiences or is it just me? Any thoughts? Was it weather, low water conditions, water temp, other?

      On the south end...  The fish are there, the anglers this time of year, not so much.  Some are deer hunting, some have put their boats away and are getting the ice fishing gear ready.  For those who have not winterized their boats, there are plenty of walleyes and saugers to be had.
      Those who hit the water this week were rewarded.  Schools of walleyes and saugers are set up along the south shore and are active.  Anchored up and jigging with a fathead or emerald shiner is the most common method of fishing.  
      Most anglers report good fishing in 17-27 feet of water.  Gold, pink and glow continue to be hot colors in the stained waters of LOW.  
      Pike, jumbo perch, sturgeon, crappies and eelpout are also being caught by walleye anglers.
      Looking forward to ice fishing!
      On the Rainy River...   A great week of fishing on the Rainy River with good numbers of walleyes.  Most are jigging with emerald shiners.  Gold, glow and pink, gold / orange have been strong colors.
      Sturgeon are still being caught, many by unsuspecting walleye anglers jigging with minnows.  
      Up at the NW Angle...  Back harbors and bays are just starting to ice up.  For the few anglers out fishing, the bite continues to be really good.  Most anglers are jigging.  
      Gold, pink and/or glow colored jigs are doing well.  Anglers fishing the U.S. side are tipping with a fathead or frozen shiner.  Those fishing the Ontario side tipping with various plastics.
      Points, reefs and sandy areas in neck down areas continue to hold good fish.  12 - 24 feet depending upon the spot.  
      Travel to and from the Angle via vehicle through the 40 miles of Canada is open.  Must be vaccinated and have a negative PCR COVID Test. Rapid tests available in Baudette and soon in Warroad.

      On the south end...  Unseasonably warm temps are prolonging anglers' appetites to continue open water fishing and it is paying off.  The late fall bite is very strong!  
      As many anglers are focused on deer hunting, those who hit the water were rewarded.  Schools of walleyes and saugers are set up along the south shore and are active.  Looking ahead, these fish are set up nicely for first ice.  
      Anchored up and jigging with a fathead or emerald shiner is the go to method.  Live shiners are available and effective.  
      Most anglers report good fishing in 17-27 feet of water.  Gold, pink and glow continue to be hot colors.  
      Mixed in with the walleyes are pike, jumbo perch, sturgeon, crappies and eelpout. 
      Some back bays iced up on cold mornings!
      On the Rainy River...   More and more walleyes are being caught in the river each week.  Mother Nature appears to be a couple of weeks behind this fall.  To no surprise, most are stuffed with emerald shiners.  Jigging with a frozen or live shiner has been the go to method, however, those trolling crankbaits also producing.
      Sturgeon activity continues to be good with some big fish caught and released.
      Up at the NW Angle...  For the few anglers out fishing, the bite continues to be really good.  Most anglers are jigging with big numbers of fish are being caught.  
      Gold, pink and/or glow colored jigs are doing well.  Anglers fishing the U.S. side are tipping with a fathead or frozen shiner.  Those fishing the Ontario side tipping with various plastics.
      Structure such as points, reefs and sandy areas in neck down areas continue to hold good fish.  12 - 26 feet continues to be the range depending upon the spot.  
      Travel to and from the Angle via vehicle through the 40 miles of Canada is open.  Must be vaccinated and have a negative PCR COVID Test. Rapid tests available in Baudette.  Boating into Canadian waters is now open.  
      Want to avoid crossing the border?  Charter transport via water and ice and flights over the lake delivering you to your desired resort are available through the LOW Passenger Service and Lake Country Air both this fall and into the winter months via ice.

      Shopped around the end of last season for a new case. Have had the Eagle claw  case for a couple seasons, and still use it quite a bit. Nice box for the $50 price range.  Like I said, shopped around....looked at the Otter 40  and 40deep series. Ended up getting the big Scheels 42 case. This thing is a beast...room for all but the longest rods, and lots of storage boxes to stuff goodies into.  My only complaint is the overall size...it's really too big when your trying to pack light....lol
    • JerkinLips
      I heard there was a few open spots still last weekend.  Somebody walked out from McKinley Park on Saturday and found only 2-3 inches in the bay.  Now they got heavy snow and then very cold weather so all bets are off.  I delayed my first trip up until this Thursday to give the cold weather more time to work.  Hope to report decent ice then but I wouldn't bet on it.

      Let's get an ice thread going.   I saw on the fishing thread that someone said that Head O Lakes had open water prior to the most recent snowfall. Unless we melt off a lot of this snow, we are going to have a bad ice year. Is Big Bay completely frozen over?

      Smurfy, just finishing up residency. I move up Dec 21st. Not sure how much ice fishing I'll do this year, likely some. Trying to pay off the school loans before I buy a ton if toys. I should be able to provide some weather reports and some ice reports as I can walk out and always check with the hand auger. I'll be renting a cabin on little bass but my sister is up by Marcell so I'm sure I'll get up there weekly

      awesome picture!!!!!!! not really liking the 8 inches of snow, but if bowstring had 4 inches.......lakes i will be visiting should have a good 8!!!!!!!!! 👍
