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!

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
