Going up to the border thru Prairie Portage on July 28th. Does anyone know if there are muskie in Moose or Sunday Lake? I was there during my college years and now a few of us are returning, but this time we are bring our sons. Any insight on recent fishing patterns would be great.

Buy some rapala tail dancers in the purpledescent color, as that is one of THE crankbaits up there, and troll it around along shorelines, points, and islands in 15-25 feet of water. My second choice in crankbait up there would be a size 7 jointed shad rap in fire tiger. Use 1/8 to 1/4 ounce lead head jigs with your gulp stuff and simply vertical jig it around points, any narrows you come across, and in the saddles between islands and/or islands and mainland, all in that 15-25 foot depth range, and you should catch fish.

Looking for a little help here? Ok, no muskie. We won't have access to live bait, does anyone have any suggestions on lures or water depths? I'm bringing a ton of Gulp stuff and walleye will be our main target. I know these lakes have a ton of lakers but I don't know how deep they would be at this time of the year? We are in canoes, no electronics or motors. If anyone can give me a few hints it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
