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?

Fishnsilly -

We’ve had a rough time with the LM Bass out at Evergreen, (though typically we only fish there in the fall.)

do you have days where the catch is more than 10 bass?

TMuskyFisher,

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.

Hi TM,

Evergreen beat up the IMTT tournament boys.  They didn't schedule an event there this year like years past.  They are heading to Prairie Lake instead that weekend.

Yes, I have fished Banner Marsh! Is the musky fishing on Evergreen more consistent at a certain time of year, or is the bite always off?

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.
