Fox lake

15 posts in this topic

Was cruising some other forums and saw that recently a guy pulled a 56x23 out of fox. Anyone else fishing this lake? I knew they started stocking it a little while ago but didn't think the lake would be kicking out fish of that caliber so soon. Maybe they were stocking it before I heard? Might have to start heading south instead of north...

in the past few years it has become very popular becaues one it has dang nice skies, and because skie lakes down south are far and few beside French, the iowa lakes, cant really think of any others down their and Fox. But they have seen a few muskies in the fairmont chain, they think when the water was really high the creek from fox to the chain lakes got high enough and a few got into the lakes.

I think that guy may need a better measuring devise. I don't think that a fish could get that big that fast. It's possible it's a freek of nature, but I doubt it.

I just learned that they had muskies in there this spring, didn't make it down there early, but will probably be hitting it with my father this fall. He only lives and hour away.

The muskie in Fox Lake are in the range of 36" to 52". I witnessed 10 landed and released. Three of which I caught while fishing walleyes. They ranged from 39" to 48". They were really hitting late June and early July. No hits last weekend, but did have 2 follows. The lake is located in Martin County SW

MN. I landed a 52" for my Uncle last fall, so they should be getting bigger. Just some information for those who find it hard to imagine fish of this size in a SoMN lake. All the Best!

    • I think it's called "Putting America to Work".    And it's a part time job on the same order as getting paid to applaud.     Looks like an easy job that would allow some time for fishing on the side.  Where do I sign up?
    • It's used in most enclosed trailers now but being uncovered would be my concern, treated won't react with the aluminum in a negative way ?
    • Nah...   You won't get an answer from the lefties on that one.   Nor will you get an answer as to why the lefty hate mongers break windows, burn cars, beat people, throw rocks and bottles at police all weekend long exercising their so called "right" to peaceful protest...   And the women's march ??     MC maddona..(who does not reside in America) takes the cake (pun intended) with three f' enhiemers and a threat to blow up the white house...   Frauds and Losers ....        
    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
