Recommended Posts

Yep! Haven't you seen Mr Sondag's beast from Mille Lacs? Or the gals from up in Canada? - Not Linda Rice this time! A guy I know got a 55" up in Canada on Pipestone. Also a very big I believe metro area fish that is being kept low key. Also a 58" from thinking St Lawrence or Georgian bay that should make an appearance in Muskies Inc soon. Might be some more, but I'm late to hit Holcombe!

I've seen and heard of quite a few in the low 50's. Haven't heard of anything that really stands out. But prime time for huge fish is still a few weeks off.

He has a big one on his knilyksum (read <--) but he has several over 50" from this year as well.

I wonder just how many big ones get caught and manage to stay under the radar each year.

I just got a pic of a 54 x 25'er. 2nd one I know of from this lake within 2 weeks or so.

The only reason I said define big is that i know people who think anything over 50 is big...not that it isn't, but i'd wager a post like this is looking for 54-55+.

I've seen a few nice ones come off of Mille Lacs. Ranging from 40 to 53 being the biggest I've seen. I have yet to pull one off this year, but I've only been fishin the muskies a couple of times, focusing on the great walleye bite!

Saw my name mentioned here so I thought I should pipe in. We have boated several in the 50 - 53.5 inch range this season. Which I consider giants. Even though I live and fish in MN I haven't been infected with the "Mille-Verm" virus that inexplicably makes you refer to a 45 inch fish as a "Peanut" or a 51 as just a "good fish."

The biggest fish I know of from this season... Other than the mystical 60+ inchers that are caught by crappie fisherman every year smirk Are Greg Marino's 56.25" up at Lac Seul. And a pair of 58's and change out of the Ottawa and the Larry.

Hopefully I'll see a fish like those soon!

jsondag,

Thank you! I agree 100% a 50+ inch fish are giants. I think 45+ a dandys. I heard Richard Pearson talk at one of these muskie shows a couple years ago and he referred to anything over 45" to be "Big ones". I found that refreshing. Sorry to get off topic.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
