Glad I'm not the only one who's coming up empty. I was out again on Friday, we started at the Strawberry light and drifted east. Then we went up and worked the North Channel from Deckers to Grass Island. Then we worked the spillway to the mile roads. Finally, just south of the spillway we got our first hit and landed a 27 incher. We used everything in the box. We trolled, and we drifted. This was my third time (18 hours) out since the season opened and this was the first one we landed.

Don't worry, I've gone out 6 times this year for them for a total of probably close to 20-25 hours trolling for them, and I've caught one fish all year and it was only probably mid-high 30's. I'm incredibly frustrated and though I keep wanting to go out, this is very discouraging and sad
especially when I keep hearing reports of people catching up to 10 a day. I don't have planer boards, but still thought I would pick up a few fish here and there with the amount of time I put into it. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG??!!

I think thats its just being in the right place at the right time (of course with the right presentation) last week I had a great day on monday (by myself) then took two people out for the next two days (6 lines) and got skunked both days, then two of us caught one fish on thurs., one fish friday, skunked sat, sunday, and caught two on monday while walleye fishing (little guys about 28 - 30 inches) then I go out alone again yesterday
(and moved south a few miles) and have my best day ever, hooked 9 muskies/ landed 8 , and one nice pike (9.5 lbs/ 36 in.)

when I hooked my first fish yesterday, I circled the area for the next seven hours to catch the rest.
I will probably get skunked again this afternoon

good luck!

I was out today for about an hour or so. I caught a muskie that weighed 19.1 on my digital scale. It hit a 1/2 oz. Berkley Frenzy crankbait near the Salt River in about five feet of water. I got a couple looks at the fish while I was fighting it and it didn't look like it would be much over about 33-34 inches. When I finally landed it I couldn't get my hand around it's head and had to lift it by the gill plate. It turned out to be around 42" and had a pretty good girth.

Ain't it funny how us bass guys always weigh 'em and the muskie guys always measure 'em?!?


I had one over 30 inches follow a spinner to the boat near the Selfridge barracks today while bass fishing.

He layed there looking at me for about 10 seconds and slooooowly swam away.
