Muskies Still Sluggish?


Lund 95

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone has been out chasing skies lately?

We are thinking of checking it out in about a week. Not looking for locations, just a generally consensus of what their activity levels are? We will most likely fish the west and north side.... Good luck!

Fished the North Sunday, seen/caught ZERO, and 1 decent pike little better then 30".

Good Luck if you get out.

The guy they call the post man, who actually is the postman is very good. Can't remeber his name off hand...I think Gene something. Ask around at Mille everyone knows him.

Chad Cain guides mostly on Vermilion these days. He used to spend most of this summer on Leech but has shifted to Vermilion the past 2 summers. Last I heard he was pretty well booked up there. I'm sure he fishes Mille Lacs occasionally. But he would probably refer you to Gregg Thomas who guides on Mille Lacs. Gregg runs Battle The Beast Guide Service. Chad is an awesome stick. But let's not get carried away with 4-5 fish days being the norm with him!

There are a lot of guides that fish Mille Lacs. Some names that are excellent and spend a ton of time out there are Gregg Thomas, Steve Scepaniak (sp?), Brian Gulseth, and I'm drawing a blank on others. But there's a bunch.

AWH gave you some great info, all great guides. Another one to look into is Jason Hammernick of muskiebreath guide service, he guided a client to an amazing 51.5 x 29 last summer. Also check out Steve Cady and Steve Jonesi, both good sticks as well.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.

      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?

      We were up this past weekend.  We got cold but did ok.  We caught around 40 walleye.  Most were 12-14" a handful of 14-16".  Good activity and a full fry pan, but no bigger fish.  Frazer and Smarts bays.  All Jig and minnow.  Mornings we found them at 24-26 FOW.  Evenings in 7-10 FOW.  Water temp was 50-52.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.
