Going to Redstone on Saturday for the first time. Curious what kind of structures are on the lake. Ex. Is there any weeds? Any advice would help.

Well the year is winding down and its been a very good year for Musky on Redstone.

Many larger fish were caught this year the largest that I know of is a 46 incher caught in one of the south side inlets.

If anyone knows of a larger fish caught let us all know ok.

The hot baits for me this year were my BlackPerch and Yellow Dreamcatch Bucktail.

Saturday my good friend Bill Green and his father Larry Green came down to fish with me on Redstone.

Bill Green is the owner of Dreamcatcher bucktails, Big Game Lures and Toothtamer Rods and sponsors many of the top named musky tournament guys.

This year a article was written in Field and Stream naming Dreamcatch Bucktails one of the 5 best musky catching lures.

Probably on the 7th or 8th cast Larry Green hooked into a fish with his Crappie Color Dreamcatcher Busktail. Nice fish see the attached picture.

After Larry's fish the weather changed and we were unable to raise any more fish but it was a great day on the water.

Bare Necessities Bait Shop in La Valle is now the areas exclusive dealer for the Dreamcatcher Buck tails, Big Game Lures and Toothtamer Rods.

Bill left with Jim a few samples of the Dreamcatch Bucktails and Big Game Crank Baits I have had success with on Redstone along with the article in Field and Stream.

As the months go one we will also be giving Jim a sample Toothtamer rod for anyome interested to look at.

Next time you are at Bare Necessities Bait Shop take look and maybe pick one up I promise you will not regret it. The samples left are for sale also.

For your reference below are links to the Field and Stream Article and Bills web pages.

Here is one from a half day trip after work. If you don't have time to get out much and want to put a muskie in the boat, We can probably make that happen.

Fished Redstone today. Trolled most of the day. Pretty slow day. We got a largemouth, crappie and three walleye (20, 16, and 14). All three walleye came from the same spot on the north end of the lake so we jigged it for a bit and got some small panfish and a big bullhead. We missed a musky at the south end of the lake. Buried the planer board and thought sure it was a snag, so applied pressure and it broke free. Started reeling it in and it started pulling drag. Then realized it was a fish and a big one. My brother-in-law so a large flash in the water and then it was gone. Bit me off. At the end of the day we went back to that spot and let my nephew's son try for his musky, but no takers.

Going to hit Castle Rock tomorrow.

We are doing our annual fishing trip next week in the Dells area. We trailer the boats to various lakes and usually spend a day on Redstone trolling for walleyes, but get crappies and smallmouth as well.

My nephew's son(Cool wants to try musky fishing(I took my brother, his grandpa, out earlier this year and got him his first musky, so he has to keep up with grandpa), so I told him I would bring the musky gear. Last year we trolled musky baits for about an hour with no success. Mostly in the main lake area. This year I'm going to let him cast a little (some small topwaters or bucktails) and then may troll a little.

Any suggestions on where we might have the best chance to see a fish either casting or trolling?

Thanks for the help,

Dave

Was out today on a full day guide trip with a very nice couple from oshkosh wisconsin. Water temp at 7am was 73.3 and at 3pm when we left it was 75.5 Wind was out of the east south east all day. Few rain shower passed threw. For the first 5 hours we fished muskies. For the last 3 we trolled cranks and boards for walleyes,panfish. Today we never even raised a muskie. Water was very dirty and Visability is less than a foot. Around 11 am we pulled out the trolling rods and boards. We trolled #4 hornets for the last 3 ours of the trip.We ended the day with a mixed bag of fish Gills,walleyes,perch, and crappies.all caught trolling. We did manage to donate a couple cranks to muskies. All our fish today went back to fight another day. Big Smile Big Smile

Why yes there is still a huge amount of shad still present in the lake. Saw a large number of them when I was out on the lake Sunday morning in some of the bays. In my opinion while the fishing has been tougher on the lake over the last few years the quality of the fish as far as health has been quite a bit better from what I have seen.

We had large numbers of shad spawning on our shoreline for a month, about a month ago. The lake is still full of shad as far as I know.

One interesting note is after showing my neighbor a few things about fishing, he has caught 3 large (15-20 lb) catfish the last 3 weeks while fishing off his dock. All released after pictures. Nice to see another species showing up lately, to go along with the usual bass, walleye and muskies.
