Fished several lakes in the Eagle River area last week in the cold and wind.  All fish with the exception of two came off deeper humps on tubes.  The fish weren't everywhere but when you found them there were more than a few in the area.

I would guess the big head and a small body are caused by the fish being hooked at one time in the past. Fish mortality rates are about 50% depending how they are hooked. The fish that survive are left unable to feed properly because of the Damage Done to their mouths. The 50-inch bleeding musky is pretty much a dead fish

Almost forgot, along with my post below, my brother caught a weird "humpback muskie" with a big head.  He seemed healthy and swam away on release.  Hopefully he's on his way to growing into a really large fish.

Had some luck last weekend as we boated muskies on suckers.  All fish were caught in shallow water <10 feet.  Water temps varied between low to mid 40's.  Tough winds, we actually fished the calmest water we could find.  We cast also and I had a follow on a Jake, he stayed with the figure 8 and then disappeared.  Thought he was going to grab a sucker, but no.  Beautiful fall colors, but may be nearing the end.  Good Luck all and keep your lines wet!

Braving the weather over the last week or so as we transitioned from fall into early winter has been paying off with a variety of catches.  Most of these fish caught on deeper flats, all on artificial hard baits.  Had a musky on a sucker, otherwise fun catching everything else!  Fish don't seem to care that 32 was the warmest air temp I had the chance to fish over the last week, bundle up and get out there!

Not a tiger. 


Looks like it was a dandy.  You did a masterful job of landing it.  It must have been very cold that day.

(“NO FISH NO PAY, GUARANTEED”.)

Starting with yesterday. 

10-20-2018.

I had to correctly edit my past report.

Although warmer yesterday, (unlike today) with the snow on the ground. This single client again enjoyed a fall day, despite the rough conditions (mostly the high winds) this client prevailed in a few more good Walleye. We waited for the wind to slow down to take these photos. This happened several times during this day, cloudy and then sunshine. 

All fish on minnows around 38 ft deep, vertical jigging today, to windy for bobbers. Several snags on the deep wood.

As always, stay positive, think clearly, do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.


God Bless
John Andrew

WW,

i think that’s a std Muskie.  I think fins are rounded on a tiger, pointed on a skie.  Nice fish though.  Over 50?
