Pleasant Creek Lake Muskies

9 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone is having any luck with the muskies on pleasant creek lake? What tactics seem to be working the best.

Thanks

Its about quiting time for muskies on Palo(AKA Pleasant Creek) until the Fall. Water temp is at or above 80 and then tend to shutdown. I havent tried a night bite so that might work out better.

I had not heard this. Havent been out much this year as I have been concentrating on getting the basement remodeled. I do know there was a floater found by my friend but it was due to handling. Im expecting the bite to be back up shortly. We have had some cooler weather which will make them more active.

Anybody been on PCL recently? Any reports? I would think this extreme cool down ought to get something moving. I am thinking of hitting the lake sat morn.

Hit PCL today between rain storms. No muskies, but hammered a 21" largemouth on a bulldawg. That was exciting.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
