I'm planning on making my first trip to Evergreen next week. Some years weed cover is thick on the Big Flats, some years it isn't. Anyone know the coverage this year?
I wouldn't say the bite is always off. I've been down to Evergreen twice this week and both times have hooked into a musky while bass fishing. I never target musky. First one was 35" and the second was 32". We did see another one where I caught the second and it was huge. Probably about 45"-50". Also had 2 bite offs that were probably musky as well.

Correct - 25hp limit, but you can have a larger motor on your boat. Just till it up out of the water and you will be fine. They aren't real big lakes. The biggest (Johnson) is something like 600 acres, so a trolling motor is not out of the question. I just use my 9.9 when I fish it.

I have muskie fished A LOT all over this state, Kentucky, Wisconsin, and Minnesota - Evergreen Lake is the toughest bite you will ever find.
You ever try Banner Marsh for muskies?
