Unreal - Frinday night Muskies on Lobster

Recommended Posts


Friday evening my brother and i took a little trip out to Lobster Lake, it was a beautiful evening not too windy and not to cool, we had a couple follows, then right around 6:00 pm my brother hooked up with 44 incher, she hit at the boat. We landed her snapped a few pics and released her, she swam away strong. While I was cleaning up the boat and putting the cradle and tools away, he continued to cast and wouldn't you know it not even 10 minutes later he has hooked up with another one, this one a little smaller about 37 inches. This was only his third or fourth time fishing them and he puts 2 nice fish in the boat in one day. We were working depth raiders in about 16 feet of water. WOW What an evening...

Yank'em hard

RuKiddingme, great night. My brother-in-law is a muskie fisherman but I like to fish walleyes. How is the walleyes in Lobster. Maybe my brother-in-law and I can do a muskie/walleye trip. Thanks for the info.

Coach i have never fished Walleyes on Lobster, i mainly fish the Musky out there and save the Walleye Fishing for lake mary, we have a cabin on mary and it is one of the best walleye fisheries in the area. Unfortunately with the Hunting season in full swing, i get out on lobster when i have the time usually after the morning hunt or on friday when we up there from the cities, and that doesn't leave much time for fishing the Walleyes, but from what i have read the eye action on mary has been pretty solid this fall. Lake Mary and Lobster Lake are about 10 miles if that away from each other, so doing a morning/afternoon musky fish on lobster and then picking up and heading over to mary would work out quite nice. Good Luck be sure to post reports if you get out.

      @cherokee muskie-mike is spot on the dog food... When I use to camp at hoodoo point campgrounds I tend to use nightcrawlers if I have any to spare (in a minnow trap). Caught too many rusties while fishing.

      6/22/18     West Metro Water temp is in the 70's and sunfish are up on the beds. Look for harder bottom areas inside of or adjacent to softer bottom with weeds. The smaller females will be staging over the weeds--you may see them boiling--and the big bulls will be guarding the nests (beds) on the firmer bottom. Got my son and Dad out to catch a bunch this morning.  Ultralight 7' spinning rods/reels with four pound test Berkley Nanofil works great to cast to these bedding fish from a distance and get a good hook set. We use a 1/16 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig tipped with a 1" to 1.5" soft plastic (minnow, grub, tube, etc.) under a slip float to adjust for beds at different depths. Usually you will be targeting 2-8 feet of water, depending on water clarity. Take care not to keep everything you catch. It is fine to keep a fresh meal once in a while--sunfish is awfully tasty--but put plenty of fish, including the biggest bulls, back. Needed to keep the natural cycle of reproduction going. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Fished the lake this morning ,,, water temps were 72-74 and the flys were hatching ,,, unhooking the walleyes they were coughing up fly larvae,,, Need to power wash the boat now ,,, No keepers today but lots of overs and 2 unders mixed in with some pike and sunnies on flicker minnows ,,, Go figure

      Thanks everyone for the feedback. I was beginning to think I lost my touch. Took a beating this winter, but hopefully it will come back again. Also would like to see some more restrictions on the crappies. Time to start checking the deeper weed beds I guess. I know the water temps have been fluctuating a lot this spring and maybe they skipped the spawn.

      Crappies have been hard for me to pin down on other waters as well.  Seems they are not were they usually are and I wonder if the weird winter to summer transition is to blame.  Time to start looking in other parts of the water column.

      There is a fishing dock north of the Sorlie Bridge on the ND side or from the shore, downstream of the dam by the walking bridge on the north side of town on the ND side or on the MN side, at the mouth of the Red Lake River just SW of Cabelas are all pretty good options.
