Musky Trip Next Summer

Recommended Posts

Looking for a few Ideas on where to make a trip for muskies in MN, WI or Canada. Here is the situation myself and some fellow memebers of the UW-fishing Team are wanting to plan a Musky trip for next summmer. There would prolly be around 5 of us, we are looking at a resort that is afforadble but also one that provides oppertunities for trophy fish. This past weekend we had a trip to Green Bay and did decent (34, 40, 44, 45, 48) but most importantly we had a great time. Now we want to plan a summer and fall trip. The fall trip will be to Green Bay agian but the summer trip destination is up in the air.

Thank you in advance for any ideas,

Croix

Croix,

What's your boat situation? That'll help people direct you a bit. Also, as with any trip, the $$$ factor seems to rule. Save what you can and make the best of it.

Boats big enough to handle bigger water? If that's the case LOTW would be a good option. Take a guide the first day to learn the lake and then go from there. I know guys that go to Red Wing Lodge every year and do just that.

A Metro blitz would be kind of fun too, 'tonka, Waconia, Indy, White Bear, Bald Eagle, Forest....a cool way to fish a lot of different waters. Even better if you could find a college buddy with a place to stay in the area.

Another idea would be to hook up with Tim Anderson and work the Brainerd area for a few days. He could get you going on Sham and/or Alex and those lakes could make for a few fun and productive days. You could also make a day and hit some of the less-pressured lakes in the Longville area.

Without a doubt, Lake of the Woods. Give Frank Walsh at Bay Store Camp a call and see if they have openings. Frank and Laura are great folks and they specialize in Musky fishing and groups. They will put you on fish and they are BIG fish.

We have the boats and gear to handle big water, we are thinking of hitting the Big V, LOTW, or somewhere in Wisconsin where we can hit multiple lakes in a week. Prolly leaning towards hitting LOTW, Ill know more after our team metting next week. It also sounds like we might be able to use SOME team money so that should help out.

Those resorts sound awesome, thanks again!

LOTW. I've been going to Red Deer Lodge with the family for over 16 years. Ray and Roxanne are excellent hosts and the fishing is incredible. If you end up going ask Ray for a ride on the Argo. Those things plow through thick canadian forest like a stroll in the park.

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
