Good luck fall Muskie hunters....there were plenty of you trying, but no success that I saw that day. Good luck everyone.
Thank you in advance for any help. My father, brother and myself are planning a trip to Eagle River for a fall musky trip. Typically we stay in St. Germain and pull in and out everyday on different lakes each day.
This year we wanted to try something different. It has been many many years since any of us have fished the chain but it seems like a better body of water to spend a long weekend on and fish for musky. We have found one cabin to rent, on Duck Lake.
First, is this the correct end of the chain to fish for musky, and if not, what area should we target. I do not need a specific lake or a spot, we can handle fishing and figuring that out. With such a large body of water, and only a couple days, we don't want to waste time driving to the other half of the chain after not catching anything on the first half.
Also, if the Northern lakes are the wrong lakes, or even if they are the correct lakes, does anyone know of a place to stay on the chain where we can keep the boat in the water for a couple days? We are headed up there from Milwaukee on 10/30-11/3.
Again, thanks for any help and I will be sure to post a report when we return.
Thanks and happy fishing to all!
anyway, 2.5 days, 30 hours on water, 6 guys between 2 boats throwing plastics and top water frogs over weeds and structure, we did very well for never fishing this chain. The wind was a constant battle every day! by day three we were immune to wind and traffic....and were asked many times "you come here to fish?"
Pic shows our keepers plus we threw back many 12" LMB, rock bass and had numerous bites offs from northern pike.
fishin's better than workin!
Have a great trip!
