WBL Monster Muskie

Recommended Posts

The fishing report in the Wednesday Pioneer Press says there was a fish close to 60 inches from WBL. Report comes from Jim Hansen of Hansen's Little Bear Bait.

Anyone know anything about this??

Webwarrior and I were out on Bald Eagle Lake yesterday when a gentleman caught a muskie bout 20 feet from us. Was talking to him when he suddenly set the hook. It was pretty cool, saw the backside and the fins of the fish come out and take his spinnerbait. Said they were fishing a muskie league. Didnt look that big in the water, but when it came out, it was 45 inches easy, pushing 50. It was BIG.

I just wish reports/rumors like this would stay off the 'net until there is a pic. Now both of these lakes will be pounded and drive these very special fish into lock jaw or worse, get caught by someone not prepared to handle it.

I was out fishing WBL a couple weeks ago and using a Black and Yellow spotted Jerkabit, I got hit pretty hard and reeled in a 49" musk! I took a couple of measurements which I didnt have my camera with frown.gif and set her free! So she still in there unless you here other wise! Good Luck!

      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
