Muskies, first week in November

Recommended Posts

drowningwormstoo

Don't expect any 'trade secrets', just generalities. I would just like to know, if fishing for Muskies first week in November is possible on LOW. If so, methods (trolling, live bait, casting?) as well as general locations, like "Monument Bay" area versus "Sioux Narrows" area. Any information would be great. We are going up to fish on the Rainy River for walleyes, but my Musky fever took over and would like to fish for them also.<P>Thanks, Scott

Yep, if the weather'll cooperate, you can chase them. It's actually a great time to hunt for them. Be really dang careful if you're going by boat out of the Rainy River area at that time. You'll have to travel a long ways by water to get to sklunge waters and it's a dangerous time of year in no-man's land on LOW.<BR>Trolling big cranks in ciscoe waters is the technique of choice that time of year. Fish 6 to 12 feet of water is what I'm told.<P>Widetrack- you've gotta have some good suggestions for this post.<P>------------------<BR>Scoot<P>RodsbyEngel: custom made fishing rods

Thanks for your post and a clarification. We were planning to drive with boat somewhere from Baudette (Monument Bay for example). We were not planning to cross the pond.

I'm usually up there for 10 days or so the last part of October.<P>I'd say you have a 50-50 chance of being able to get out into Nov. The main lake isn't frozen, but the marinas often are.<P>Trolling 10" jakes is generally the presentation of choice. A nice sunny warm day though, be sure to check the sand bays. We have caught some really nice ones up shallow as well.

Just remember to be extra careful.<P>The pond can be very unforgiving during that timeframe with the cold water. Also, remember that there isn't alot of boat traffic that time of the year. <P>If you have a break down, or get caught in nasty weather, there isn't alot of places you can go for shelter, since most lodges are closed in November. Also, if you break down, you might be stranded for a few days, unless you have the proper equipment to notify someone via radio. However, remember that radio only travels so far.<P>Just be carefull!<p>[This message has been edited by Big G- (edited 06-18-2004).]

Yep,<P>I wouldn't be out there without a kicker motor.<P>I had to come in on my kicker motor last fall for the first time... Took forever, but way better then the alternative.<P>Chances are you won't see another boat while you are out that late.
