No, I understand. You weren't the first to mention that to me over the past couple days. The future of the muskie population in busse (and all over) is definitely important to me. Again, your point was well taken.

Again not trying to start a fight. I had one die on me at 78 degrees. She swollowed the entire bucktail and unfortunetaly took a bit too long to release. She swam away ok but just to make sure I came back to the spot just to make sure hour later and unfotunately she was swimming belly up. As tough as they seem they really do not take well high temps. Again season is open and its ones choice to fish for them. Just be aware of the fact that delayed mortality can happen hours or even days later.
Ralphie. Not trying to be a ...But fished area lake week before and water temp was at 81. At the momement busse for shallow as it is has to be in mid 80s. Any fish caught at that temp is more than likely to die. So if u have any concern for fish that u target, take a break and fish for other species. Especially when ur shore fishing and fish is going to be out of the water for a long time. Way more than a minute. Guides are cancelling their trips so i can see u holding ur pleasure adventures until next cool down. Thx

81° - 88° F
Just shore-fished the walls on the north pool around 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm.
My kid caught a handful of bluegill and I got a couple hits with a plastic frog but that was it. Didn't really see anybody catching anything else.
