LOTW Muskies spots revealed

Recommended Posts

Uramusky

I will be heading to LOTW with my Grandpa on June 26th -July 1st and I need some sure Fire spots to at least try to produce some nice skies. I do not get up to LOTW often but I should would appreciate a couple of positive places. We will be staying near Morson. I have a good map and lots of baits and colors. ANything is greatly taken to heart and will try to do our best. <P>Thanks Damon in middle MN<P>------------------<BR>

Too tough to tell you spots without you and I looking at a map.<P>But the best bit of advice I can give you for "free" is to.......<P>Look for rock points that shoot into deep water. Big fish like access to deep water. They will hang out off these points that go into water in 3 to 10 feet. This is the tea stained portion of the lake. You can find plenty of the deep water juting points in the Big Narrows region of the pond. jerk-baits and bucktails are your ticket. Red/black jerk-baits and bucktails. Also don't be afraid of the classic red/white bucktail.<P>Make sure you fish saddles too. The fish love to hang out in these for "staging" spots to hit food. <P>Saddles and points that have "access" to deep water should be your focus this time of the year.<P>Stay away from bays.<P>Focus on your deep water access areas and you will find your bigger fish there.

I'd agree with most of this, but sand bays with good cabbage growth (west, and south facing typically) are places that shouldn't be ignored. Throw spinner baits right up in the cabbage, and you will get bit.

My mistake Widetrack.....<P>I misread the dates. I thought he said July 26th.<P>Yes!!! Fish West facing sandy bays with cabbage. I would probably fish that a little more than rock points leading to deep water.<P>I'm heading up this Friday to the Angle for a week. Schmick.........you said you are heading up too, right?<P>Good luck to you guys and call "Big G" on channel "69" if you are up in the area from June 19th to the 25th..... It would be good to have a beverage with a fellow FM'er

I'm not sure when exactly I'm going to make it to the Angle. My schedule is really messed up. It won't be this weekend though.

Monument Bay has been showing some good signs of Muskie lately - we were up in the back bay of "No good Lake" on the North end of Monument Bay. We were fishing for walleyes and we drifted over to some of the shallower water with some cabbage - so I put on a Husky jerk and started to cast a few times to see if I could pick up a Northern. I caught some weeds and was reeling up fast when a nice Muskie totally cleared the water after my lure - at bare minimum a 48. Some of the other guys at the resort up there also reported seeing some nice fish. This weekend I imagine it will be very busy though - as the resort owner said they were booked this weekend with all Muskie hunters.

      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????

      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy!

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
