Haven't seen much info on spring muskies, just wondering if someone has some input on West side muskie hunting? smile.gif

Look for food they munch on.


Enjoy the hunt.

We had one follow our red/yellow slip bobber while reeling in last year (west side). Very impressive to see it in the water so close to the boat. What are the chances of catching one by accident using a large sucker minnow or rapala?

Do they hang out anywhere they want and move around or do they like certain areas better than others?

Kindda scarry when they hit the panfish you just caught.

Any special atmosphere they like while fine dinning, top of the menue muchies for the season, dinner music??? confused.gif

Tom -- was that you and the hounds in Black Bay the ONE nice day we had? Both goldens went for a swim.

Large suckers work, but most of us don't use them as they get swalloed up FAST and a gut hooked fish is not going to make it. frown.gif

Not much of a challange either.

Rapalas are one of the best lures made.

Fling, zing, wham bam!


Some of the largest fish might hang around fave areas, but they come and go as they choose.

Moving to get a better view of a KILL!



If it looks fishy, well, go FISH IT!

Toss something that looks like what they eat, make it look like it just got whacked in the head with a louisville slugger and your good to go.

May be good idea to start out SLOW for now.

Add a nice pause here and their can be very productive.

Hunt up a big one and let er go.

The hunt can be the best part of the whole deal as look where your searching.

Absolutly beautiful. laugh.gif

      First open water fishing this morning. Planed to go to Clearwater but water was 6 inches over docks. Drove over to Sylvia/Twin and access was great. Water very clear, could see bottom in more than 12 ft.  Caught several sunfish and bass. 2 northerns and a crappie. Most went back including a 9.5 in male sunny. Beautiful fish. Most caught in less than 3 ft water.  Temp was 61.

      We are high up on the hill so no worry of water damage, but our electrical box wasn't too far from the rising lake water. I hope that issue doesn't start hitting others as well!

      I was up for opening weekend, but only fished Saturday morning. I had a limit by 6:30 so headed back to the cabin to get work done. In about an hour I lost 2 on the way to the boat, boated a 13" that I threw back, and kept a 14, 15, 16, 17. Nice size eaters. Jig and minnow in 15-20 FOW.  Water temps where I was fishing was 41.    I have damage to 2 docks and several trees down. I hope this water level goes down soon! Good luck everyone.

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception
