Is there any muskie clubs down this way? If any one has any info on it I would appreciate it. Looking to get down there as much as possible this year to chase muskies.

Thanks

so far , i've been limitted to french by faribault ( i love thta area!) , and one day on brushy by fortdodge( 2 & 1/2 hr. away). i need to get over and start fishing pleasant( about 60 mi.). clear lake isn't too far( about 70-80 mi.) ,but that lake can get so darn rough, i kind of stay away from it.

hey del, with all that pleasure boat traffic on clear lake i would think that the night time would be the right time for muskies. i've never targeted them, but was wondering if you've ever night fished em?

on a side note, i talked to the biologist on clear lake in 2000. he said they were netting alot of fish in the 30" range. those fish should be quite nice now. they were also getting a bunch of small 12-16" fish. that is actually why i called him, to let him know that i had caught one. it was branded with the number 33 on his side. he told me that was just the year class that were stocked. all of those fish were raised on minnows, not pellets.

cool!i've only fished that lake once.( i had a 16 lund semi V) it got really rough in a hurry! i never have tried night fishing. mainly not comfortable with it. i kind of want to get going with this lake that is towards cedar rapids.it is only 400 acers, but a no wake lake, so no pleasure crafts! the muskies are a very bad fish! very addicting! grin.gif

    • Is it generally a good idea to use two treble hooks on a tip up setup?

    • Minnesota Archery again. D season in Wisconsin. Hopefully taking my dad out if possible, he's 95 and not in great shape right now. Also have a women's mentored hunt later in May.  Not certain yet, but hoping to put a Nebraska hunt together.  Seeing WAY more than expected this fall what with the cold wet spring we had.
    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
