Can anyone recommend a Muskie guide for Mille Lacs with reasonable prices?
Thanks, Joe

I don't know Muskieman personally, but his advice has always seemed to be right on and he really seems to know the lake well. He has helped me catch more fish period! He will also give it too you strait, sometimes fishing stories can get a little "inflated" but he seems very reliable. Just my two cents.

Thanks bigeyes, I get all of my business by word of mouth. I was off the water because when I went to take the hook out of a muskie he deeply shanked me in the hand. Last night a muskie went under the boat and when he came out he had spit the hook and it was caught in his back. The muskie was swimming violently and the guy was holding him back, the lure came out like a bullet and wizzed by my head. The weather pattern has not been the best for muskie fishing and yet they are biting. I predict a great muskie bite in August and September. My boat totally fills with an overflow, that is why I do not advertise.

Muskieman, sorry to hear about your hand, I have never taken a hook deep, but have had a few close calls. There is only one way to deal with muskie, very carefully, they leave no margin for error. Good to hear you are filling out well, sounds like you are keeping those muskie in-line up there, or atleast most of them! I don't chase any muskie until fall, and even then it is on short-term basis(eye fishing is too good to pass in the fall). Are you getting a chance to chase any eyes lately or are the Muskie keeping you too busy?

My last walleye trip was Sunday evening and I took them to Blue Jug. On departure I was getting poor reports from fishermen. We did surprisingly well. Biggest was just shy of 28 and average was 23. I am taking a day off work to run new lures, just waiting for the rain to pass. I have some new leaders I want to present to the toothy critters today. I experimented at the tail end of the season last year and they worked great. Gonna run the Wealthwood landing area.

It must have been exciting for her to catch a tiger! We caught a small spotted on Wed, pretty fish. 5 muskies on Wednesday with 10 hits,we got a 49" and a 48". I got skunked on thursday, it was super dead but managed a nice northern. We picked up a 40 inch northern Wednesday with a nice girth. I have Miss Kitty's brothers on Saturday evening. Weather pattern isn't helping the bite. Good luck Duke!

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.

      Hows the action. Got out a couple times and it was fun.

      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them 
    • eyeguy 54
      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.

      There were a PILE of big fish caught out there today, but yeah, that wind was still pretty tough despite the warmer temps.  My boy caught a 28 1/2 and a 29!  He bested his best on the same day!

      Awesome! Sounds like fun. Staying on a lake I’ve fished a fair amount last few years and struggling. Can’t get nothing to go. Fished from 4-16 ft. Been reading some articles to use electronics to mark fish in deep water (20-30fow) so maybe I’ll give that a try tomorrow. Tried trolling for pike to and again nothing. Also tried bass fishing and yep your right nothing. Man I’m really struggling but I’ve never fished this late in the season so that doesn’t help. But I don’t think I’m the only one struggling quite a few anglers out and didn’t see any fish caught.

      Hi my name is Royce. I was a live bait addict for many years and just could not kick the habit. Every day I would have to stop at the bait store to get my fix and every night I would come home with minnow and wax worm juice all over my fingers and a lot of fish to eat and let a lot go that were YUUUUGGGGGGGe 😝😜🙃

      I was on the windy side of a small lake for the action. hit 3 spots calmer and the 4th paid off. my money spot was a snooze. LOL anchored in 10 to 12 feet and bobbered down 4 feet above the weeds.  1 inch gulp alive minnows in emerald and chartreuse on a 4mm widowmaker ice jig again. the bigger ones were biting crazy light. any small change in bobber action and set the hook for the nicer fish. Smaller ones smacked it. gills and crappies acting the same and in the same area give or take a few feet. Pinched off a weight from a different bobber and put on the comal ( I am really liking these). Just the yellow stayed above the water and easy to see the nibble. Had a boat next to me with round bobbers and they struggled bigtime.
