Going to be on Moose lake east of Hayward this weekend and wondering if anyone had any info on the lake. Supposedly its a class A musky lake but we will see. Any idea what the lakes like and what lures would be good to throw? I tried getting info from the hayward wi subforum but wasn't getting any response. Hopefully someone from here has fished this lake before and has some info. Thanks

Lots of medium sized muskies. The usual lures will do the trick. Cabbage beds, points, humps etc. Moose has always been a lake I'd go to for action. The Chip, Lost Land or Teal have better size. Moose is also a great smallie lake. I'd check with Pastika's in Hayward for update info and any lure recommedations.

After snowmobiling on it and pulling lures from the stumps I know what most people throw on that lake! Mark summed it up for ya. Its stained resorvoir water if that helps you narrow down color choices on lures before you pack up and head out. Post a report when you get back! I've never tossed a lure in that lake but have chased deer, bears, and bobcats around it.

You will feel like ur fishing in a can of Coke - very dark water. Topwaters are very popular, and anything orange with a blade on it. Deadheads everywhere, be careful and go slow at first.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
