Any size to the Muskies? Talked to DNR last year and they said someone must’ve introduced the northern. Weren’t native to lake. He suggested making everyone caught become part of  your bag. Walleyes need help.

Hey Guys, not a report!  Question:  Heard it's been poor for walleye in recent years, said to say!  Have not fished Spider in many years!  Anyone offer some tips, spots, where to look for walleye and crappie in mid-October?  We used to get crappie in Brewer's Bay and the deep side of some islands, anchored, jigging with minnows at night for walleye!   Thanks if you can help.  Will report back!

Surface baits were still working and will as long as the water temps remain warmer.  Hot color was blue.  This one was 41 1/2 and came off the peninsula between Clear and Spider on the Spider side.

Fished Spider for 20 years then stopped about 18 years ago. In the 80's, the chain was fantastic fishing, Muskies over 40" were not uncommon, 50+ inchers were still there. Walleye fishing was best in early-mid July and limiting out with 18"+ eyes was not uncommon. Largest I caught through the years was 27 1/2", lost count of 24" - 26" that we caught ... well in excess of 50 for certain.

I  stopped fishing after the introduction of Northern Pike to the lake (they, like carp and catfish were non-existent in the lake chain at that time). A shame really, this was a "Class A" Musky lake and from all that I have come to understand from trusted sources, this is no longer the case. Same holds true for Walleye.

I will give it a try again some day for old times sake, but not to optimistic as far as walleye and musky are concerned.

Tight lines!

Are you knowledgeable in fish management? Or do you personally just not like northern, thus think they should go away? They are a native fish... Amazing the stigmas that get formed around certain species. Top notch game fish in my book.

We got back from Spider lake around 1st of September. Finally got my grandson up there so now 4 generations have fished it over last 60 years. Only caugh one walleye and she was 1/2 inch short of 24” but a ton of bass, some smaller crappie and a few hammer handle northerns that shouldn’t be there and make great eagle food. Plenty of water in the channels. Only 1 42” muskie but spend most time with the kid. Walleye fishing is as bad as I have ever seen it.
