Any musky reports on Miltona?

Recommended Posts

I'll be making our annual musky and bass trip to Miltona in a couple of weeks and I'm wondering how the muskies are acting. In years past we've done alright. I just like to here how everyone one else is doing.

haven't been out for a while...ran grandma's marathon last weekend. Stormy weather all week, and lake levels are up. As the weather stabilizes this week should be some good action up there.

Sure had some wild weather last week. While I was out fishing panfish with the kids we had muskies follow our catch up to the boat three different times. The kids really got a kick out of seeing a fish that big.

ghotierman,
Stopped in a couple times last week, asked who all was a FMr but it was a bit busy never really got a chance to introduce myself. I'm sure we'll be by that way again.

I'm finally getting up to Miltona for some musky chasing, has anyone had any luck lately. What is the presentation the big girls are looking for? Last year at this time it was little bucktails and small chart minnowbaits.
Are the bass still up in the weeds by shore? I get to Miltona once or twice a year and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Last saturday, one of our guides was on Miltona with a couple of young kids...trolling 10" jake perch colored...boated a dandy 47 incher in the first 30 minutes....hooked up 2 or three others and had a nice follow. Great day for the boys (pic should be posted here soon)!

Muskies have been really active on Miltona lately. Bigger bass are in the deeper cabbage. Water is still up a bit since the storms, but the fishing has been real good.

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?!

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
