WOW! Some great fish here guys. Way to go Jeff and Ken! Some big fish being caught this year. Jeff, those pics of the fighting fish are awesome! Very cool.

Here's a 48 I got a couple weeks ago fishing solo.

I haven't checked this forum for quite a while. I will have to stop in more often.

Musky bite continues to be good! Have had action from some very nice fish last few times out including one of the top 3 largest fish we have had hooks in all season. Unfortunately, it came unbuttoned about 10 feet from the boat when it charged. Still, a lot of action on every outing with lots and lots of follows and plenty of strikes/blow-ups, especially from fish in shallower areas. Have averaged action (follow/hit/lost fish/caught fish) from 1.5 to 2 fish per hour on last 3 outings. Water temps are in the 74-78 degree range depending on lake. Warmer on small lakes, cooler on large. A steady night bite on blades and topwater has been going for the past week+; at least when I have had the time to pursue it. Coming up on new moon this thursday, and with water temps in the prime range for musky... some big fish will be on the move. Tight Lines.

Musky bite continues to be good here in the northwoods. Action on just about everything except topwaters this past week; mostly due to lack of effort with topwater baits. Most of the fish that are actually eating are holding shallow in heavy cover, some action on outside edge as well.

A nice triple for clients Dave and Rich! Great work guys!

The musky bite continues here in the northwoods. The unseasonably cool weather has the fish spread out and hitting on a variety of baits. The best bites seem to be in the extremes; super shallow or super deep. Fish are present and feeding on outer weedline but with temps in the 66-70 degree range, the fish have had no problem hanging in their comfort zone in super shallow water also(1-4 fow)including some very nice fish. Suspended fish over good bait or deep water structure with heavy bait seem to have been the least affected by the cool temps and are still biting well. Most action has been in the top 3-8 feet of the water column, which is where much of the bait has been located also. Synopsis: Dig 'em out of the super heavy weeds or find them in the basin. Small bucktails and jerkbaits have been producing along with straight model cranks and some rubber out deep. Persistence pays off.

Pics are of client John who boated a nice fish on a recent trip with his wife Michelle. Congrats John!

Also, father/son clients Walter and Ryan boated this nice fish. It was Ryan's first musky ever! Awesome!

PS NICE CHIP FISH!

This prolonged cold front has made fishing (musky in particular) more difficult but clients are still putting nice fish on the board nearly every trip. Pics to come. Please check out the latest musky short featuring 3 true Northern WI giants from this past month. 68 muskies in the boat so far this year; 30 of which surpass the 40" mark and 6 over 47"! On track for another excellent year. Best of luck on the water!

A nice double in 5 hours on the water with a 41.5 and 47.5. Lost a 3rd musky that was hooked twice in the same cast but shook the hook both times! Musky bite still going strong. Fish activity level has been more moderate overall with periods of heavy action. Grinding it out and waiting for bite windows to open has been key. Most action has been from eaters with far less followers than usual. Reaction strikes have been the best producers of caught fish. Look for fish buried in heavy cover to be the most active/catchable under tough conditions. Bucktails and topwaters both producing fish, especially in low light periods. With such modest water temps, fish can be anywhere in the water column. Find the heavy cover with the best bait fish densities and you will find concentrations of muskies. Tight lines.

Musky bite remains good in the northwoods despite unseasonably cool temps. Water temps have been in the 66 to 70 degree range with most hovering around 68-69. Patterns have been more of a mid-late June than a mid summer bite with the lower than usual water temps. However the fish are definitely still feeding!

Pics are of a client battling and landing one angry 48 inch beast earlier this week! Congrats Mark on an awesome fish!
