Heading up to the Sham on Saturday for the day looking for muskies. Anyone raising any fish or having and look of sorts? Haven't been up there since Labor Day.

Nope. There are no fish in that lake. Stay home. Just kidding. The fish have been starting to become more active as the water cools. I went there twice last week. Did not boat any but raised plenty.

I was out there last Thursday. Lots of dead time but I managed a 42 and a 49 for my efforts. If it hadn't been for those two fish, I would have blanked, with only one follow. Interestingly I had all three fish going within 100 feet of each other.

Shamineau has really been off for me the last couple years. Not sure what is causing it, but I have not had near the success out there the last 3 years.

I think the cooler weather going on now is going to mess them up a little bit. A warm up would probably get them going again.

Thanks for the help. We caught a 39 on Labor Day up there within an hour of starting to fish and raised some nice fish up there. We ended up having to leave early after a faulty battery and not being able to start up our outboard. So after hauling the deep cycle battery from down below to start the motor, we decided we didn't wanna run anymore. But with a new Interstate Cranking Battery ready to go Saturday morning, we should be able to spend some serious time out on the water. Looking forward to it come rain, wind, and nasty weather....just keep the lightening to the south.

Saturday was a nasty day on the lakes! YIKES! During my stint on Shamineau, I had one fish around 40" follow and that was it on Shamineau. We then went over to Alexander and didn't see anything there, but my partner had some type of fish on but was only there for a 5-10 second period. That was all we did besides get cold and frustrated with the driving wind/rain all day.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.

      I've been using the "modern step" scales for about a year now. I bought them on Amazon. They have very good reviews, and the scales are very convenient and suitable for weighing anything.  Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Accurate-Reloading-Modern-Step/dp/B01N25OC6P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536218450&sr=8-1&keywords=fish+scale

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!

      Good luck and many the ducks fall after you shoot!!

      For all the stuff I thought I had at my fingertips to pack, I sure am taking all week to get it done!  At least I have all my supplies.  I just keep tinkering on this and that, not getting it bagged up!   Leaving tomorrow morning around 9 and should have the entire afternoon to scout our top areas.  We’ll land somewhere in the northern third of the state.
