Hi. How has the muskie been on the lower manitou and the narrows up by beaverhead the past couple of weeks? I will be up there the 19-26 next week. Thanks!

The muskie fishing has been pretty good despite the terrible weather. From what I am seen they are still in transition, they aren't in their summer spots just yet. If we get some good weather they will be on the move.

I would be fishing the points and cabbage edges adjacent to their summer spots.

Good Luck

I agree with mskyfshntchr, it has been all small stuff this year. I havn't even heard of a fish being caught on something bigger than 6".

We are getting them, just all on small stuff. The biggest two of the season have been on pink jigs with pink twister tails fishing for bass.

Go small until th water starts to warm up.

    • Hey everyone has anyone started to pickle yet? Just did 65 quarts of pickles over the weekend. Also did some jars with the carolina repear pepper. Can't wait to try them.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".

    • Same thing here...*TWANG*  I took my big snippers to mine and screwed a black wire nut cap on the cut end. Or unscrew one from a junkyard F-150 and saw it off. Looks fine.
