Brainerd muskys?

18 posts in this topic

I am heading up to a cabin this weekend on Pigs Bay on the Whitefish Chain. Are there any muskie on the chain or a lake nearby that has them?

There is not any muskies on the chain. You would have to go to Mille Lacs or the lakes north of you, i.e. Leech, woman, wabedo, little boy etc.. Good luck!

That's our problem exactly. Basically no musky lakes in Brainerd (crow wing county) area. If you're at the whitefish chain, probably the closest would be the Longville Lakes to your north and east. Wabedo, Little Boy, Baby, Woman, Inguadana, Leech, etc. To your south and west is Lake Alexander and Shamineau. And of course, there's Mille Lacs.

There's no fishable population of muskies in Gull Lake. True, fish are caught there incidentally and occasionally, but it's doubtful that anyone is going out there and targeting them and catching them with any consistency.

If you want something close, and you want some action, I'd go to Baby. If you want a chance at a biggie, I'd head for Leech.

Good luck,

the only thing you're going to catch on the Mississippi right now is a cold, and about a thousand mayfly nymph exoskeletons.

    •   Then I wonder if they'll go back to the old way.
    •   Melt.   They should invite Obama and do a real roast of Donny boy.  
    • 6 million dollars per mile.    Oh My. Did Mexico cut the check for the down payment yet?  Has Merkel cut a check to Nato yet?    
    •   Plus+ 1 the carb. It's filling up the crank case with gas. After you clean or rebuild the carb tip it on the side with the plug out to drain the crank before trying to start it. Or if it's going to be a while take the plug out now and may be the gas will evap a bit by the time you get at the repair. good luck and let us know how it went. That was my first ATC.  
    • Ovi sure makes it look easy out there. What a beast.
    • And we know you like it raw.  No vaseline.   Pink steak, sure.  But raw burger just isn't my jam.   
    • AHH..... Memories.... I would have loved to have a odometer on our  Tri-Moto 125, had to have put thousands of miles on that 3 wheeler, burnt it down a few times when we were kids but Dad said you'll have to learn to fix it yourself! I'm not bringing it back to the dealer every time there's something wrong! We got good at new pistons and rings and gasket sets..... eventually we brought it to the dealer in pieces after we couldn't fix it anymore, think it was a rod bearing that eventually was it's demise, ended up getting a rippin' Tri-Moto 175 after that, those wheelers were our main transportation since we didn't have drivers licenses yet....... good times for sure.   You're carb is having issues, I would go there first, somethings not stopping the fuel from getting into your carb, either the float has a hole in it and isn't floating, or it could be sticking somewhere or your needle and seat are shot.   Give the carb a good once over and you should have your problem fixed.   Those were pretty basic 2 cycle engines, I don't think they even had reed valves.   Mike    
    • I planned on getting seeds and starting them at home, I won't be up there until late April. I have planted squash up there and they did not grow, I will look at blue hubbard, I have not had/grown them before, they sound interesting.
