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.

Thad, I read there is a 25HP limit on boat motors for Banner. Is it like Evergreen, where you can have a larger motor on your boat but not use it? I am interested in checking out this body of water.

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?

Last time I fished the water temp was 78 degrees. You just have to be out early, late in the evening, or fish cold front conditions.

Water temps have been too high to be fishing for Muskie.

Any reports on Muskies? I have fished Evergreen five times this summer (around ten hours a trip) without even a follow. I have tried topwater, crankbaits, spinnerbaits, bucktails, gliders, soft plastics, etc.

Yes The average size is down....numbers are o.k. when you find them...trouble this spring is finding them schooled in an area you can target them in....we are finding them suspended but the weather changes have them moving in and out of areas....hard to stay on them day in and day out....we find ourselves on the hunt longer until we can dial them in....
