Heading up for the muskie opener this weekend. All the gear and clothes are accounted for, just the food to get now and try to sleep at night.  Looking forward to my first visit there and my first honest effort for muskies.  Oh, I’ve caught some in the past while bass fishing but going toe to toe with an intentionally caught monster with the proper gear will be all together different.

 

Anyone else going to try their hand?  We’ll be fishing till Wednesday.  I hope to have a couple decent pics to post next week.

Good luck Wanderer!

 

I've been up to Crow a few times to fish lakers through the ice.

Always thought a summer trip up there to chase smallies, lakers, and muskie's would be fun during open water.

 

I'm looking forward to the pics.

Thanks Duffman.

 

I’m at the all packed up/can’t sleep stage now.  Tomorrow at work will be tough to keep any focus.  I’m lovin it.

 

Once we hit the border my electronic leash is going off.  Hopefully for the whole trip.  Hope to have some pics to share for sure.

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:

    • Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake!  The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away!  From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear.  Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing.  Good Luck!!
    • I have been here a good 17 years and I think there is only about 1 guy left here that I have met in person. Back in the day I knew and met several members who were frequent posters on FM. I met quite a few of them through the BP Catfish League but I think most of those guys are long gone.
    • Ok getting things back on track.  Next month will be my 14th year and I think I've only met one other member.  Met Frank (Surface Tension) several years back on Fish Lake near Duluth.  He was incredibly helpful and generous sharing his knowledge of the lake.  If I remember right my dad and I drove up and Frank called saying the forecast looked like rain for the entire day.  Well my dad and I were already on the way and were going to fish rain or shine so Frank and his son still geared up and met us for some fishing.  I don't remember exactly how the day broke down but I remember get really wet but also catching a lot of nice fish.  I've fished the lake a lot since but that was my best day by a long shot. 
    • I am making Christmas jerky packs for gifts by request   so where do I send my request??!!!  enjoy them good eats!!!
    • Thanks Frank. Your another member I have met about 5 times sledding, Twig swap, old Bside Bash and never got in front of the camera?  🙂   Lets get this thread back on track about meeting folks on this site for Outdoor activities and stop giggling about a guys titties! 🙄
    • Don't let him fool ya, he used to be known as LMIT OUT. 😁
    • Here you go just for you! I don't hunt that spot anymore anyway. Best time to be in that stand is in the evening!  😉   N 47.048424 W 94.735163
