West Metro Tigers

8 posts in this topic

I'm taking my Dad out early on Sunday morning and he'd like a shot at a Muskie. There are quit a few options in that neck of the woods. (Pierson, Wasserman, Eagle, etc.) Any of you been doing any good on any of these lakes? My Dad has never landed a tiger and I would really like to put him on something (or at least give him a fighting chance!)

Any advice?

If you don't want to post it here shoot me an email. It's in my profile.

Thanks

I raised tiger on wasserman about three weeks ago. I saw another one sunning himself about five minutes before that.

Wasserman gets my vote too, nice to be able to cover the lake in one morning. 3/4oz spinnerbait and you'll have a great tiger bait as well as a bonus bass/northern lure too. I've had a few smaller tigers this year on that bait, still fun to catch though!

Weaver in Maple Grove is an option too, but traffic is up on the lake by 8:00AM on the weekends.

Good luck!

Thanks guys, I was thinking Wasserman and you just re affirmed my opinion. Nothing else, Pierson is close by as a back up plan.

Thanks for the imput.

Glad to help!

I've not been on Pierson, but I read the DNR lake survey info online. It talked about water quality issues. If you've been out there and it's not so bad it's definitely an option. Those surveys can be dated and somewhat misleading.

If boat activity picks up and makes it harder to cast, consider trolling a bit too with your bigger walleye/bass crankbaits. It can produce too.

I'll let you know how I do. I'm starting out on Wasserman and will move to Pierson if that doesn't work.

I hit Wasserman from 5am til noon today. You were righe cjac, white was the way to go! I boated 2 tigers, at 29 and 38 inches respectfully. And I got a bonus 36 inch northern! I fished bass for an hour and got several decent bucketmouths under the docks.

All the fish were shallow. (less than 6 feet) And as I said before, white was the color.

Thanks for all the tips!

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
