muskie lake list

13 posts in this topic

Could anyone tell me if there is a HSOforum either by the dnr or a private party that has a list of all the lakes in mn that are stocked with muskies or naturally have them in them?

Sportsman's Connection has a book of MN muskie lakes, not sure if it is online though.

dnr stocks lakes bianually so if you email them and ask for last 2 years stocking numbers you'll have a pretty good list.

Page 18 to 20 of the DNR's long range management plan has maps of all native musky lakes in the state as well as lakes that have been stocked.

If you go to the Brainerd Muskies, Inc. HSOforum, there is a page on there that shows stocking data in the state. This data goes back to 1998 and is current through 2008. I entered all of this data myself and I believe it is the complete list of all stocking that has been done by the DNR during this time frame. There have been various private stocking efforts in the state that are not reflected there due to not having that information available.

It should be noted that while the index listing muskellunge waters in the long range plan is extensive, it is not a total list. For example, Stone Lake in Carver County has been stocked with muskies to serve as a rearing pond and it is not listed. This may be due to a lack of a public access on the lake, but I am not one to say for sure. AWH did have Stone Lake listed on record of stocked lakes, though.

does stone lake have any nice skies left in it? actually i have several questions about stone lake so here goes. When was the last time it was used? Is it still used? How long was it used? Is it just tiger muskies? Where could i put my canoe in at? anyway i know thats alot of info to ask for ecspecially if it was someones hidden gem, lol. Maybe someone could direct me in the way of a dnr office phone number that could help me find out, anyways thanks.

Hey PC's,

I looked into stone a couple years ago but have only ice fished it once (nothing). Legally, you can access from highway 7 where a creek comes into the lake but the closest parking we could find is all the way up at the park access on tonka. There are only tigers and I'd have to re-lookup the data but i thinkif i remember right they last did a stocking in 2000 so there's a chance some tigers have made it 9 yrs. I think most tigers only live 8?

My curiousity was peaked so I had to look again.

Guess in 06 they netted one 8lb fish so they could still be in there. It sounds like they aren't going to put muskies in there anymore because of too many green sunfish or something.

There may be a couple of lakes not on the list that have muskies for one reason for another. I am always curious how muskies seem to show up in Green Lake and Gull Lake. Private Stockings?

yea i know but its a long shot at best, many travel the cannon river, i caught a 46 incher in the cannon river fishing for sunnies. I also saw a low 40,s spearing on sahkatah lake during last years low oxygen period, my buddy andrew almost lanced em with the spear but ive seen many muskies through the ice back in the minnetonka spearing days and new better.

    •   Yes, he lives in Russia. Good job, but no one disputed that fact.     Or, from your own article:         1. That's not even the point I was trying to make with that quote. 2. You do realize that Gary Johnson is no longer Governor of New Mexico, right? 3. The last political office he ran for was as a Libertarian.     I OWE you nothing but if we ever found ourselves in the same drinking establishment, I would be happy to buy a couple rounds.   Now. Tell me more about these butt-hurt Texans? Or are you just being a giant hypocrite?     
    • sorry for late reply !! hope your trip went well. We have done great this year amazing for numbers and always a few big ones.
    •     As NYT reports, the president of the 'Yes California' movement lives in Russia.     https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/21/us/yes-california-calexit-marinelli-russia.html?src=twr&smid=tw-nytimes&smtyp=cur&_r=1   RUSSIA !!! Must be buddies with trump and putin .. (OH, MY...)   And gary Johnson (liberatarian hero) is in fact a republican.   WOOOOOO!!!!!   That's two beers you owe me.
    •   You could have just looked at him for starters.     Nothing to see here, probably just some "Christians" making fun of autistic folks.
    •  
      I swear some of you must be emotionally attached to these laws because there is no logic in your thinking, the same kind of thinking that has wasted a trillion dollars and has yet to solve a single issue. The lottery has better results than the war on drugs, at least a few winners have emerged over the years.
    •   In our local paper they highlighted a local that is an author and wrote a book on what he did for his weight loss...he would eat good for 6 days of the week and then have 1 splurge day where he could eat what he wanted and doing this reset his metabolism and he lost a lot of weight.
    •   I was thinking the same I rarely use my own wheeler but when I do I like my auger on the wheeler. I thought about buying a mount but can't stand spending that much cash on one. I was thinking of making one but that's a project for the summer months. Sorry I can't help.
    •   If that's what you want to do go for it. You're the one who will pay the consequences.   Should the guy in this video chug a bottle of Jack? Probably not but it's legal.    
    •   Maybe phone service and internet will be down. Yes! Living off grid. I like it. Can we even call it "winter" anymore? I mean seriously where's the days when getting a foot plus of snow wasent uncommon. A lot of people like these warm snowless winters. I hate it! Thanks globle warming!
