Anthony,

There are musky in Busse. Sadly due to failure to obey fishing rules and the pressure the lake gets, musky numbers are not great and they are very difficult to catch. The biggest musky in the lake would probably surprise alot of people but it's not biting artificial.

I don't fish buses much it all but has anyone seen a musky out there? The program is over 10 years old but your don't seem or hear ofmuskys caught anymore. Is the program a failure? 10. Year muskys should be in the 40 in now, I know mallard. Lake still working.

Anyone ever try the north reservoir or the northwest connector pool? (Parking lot area 31). Been to this place several times and trying to find something new because I've tried several things with no luck. Any input appreciated. Thanks.

Can someone kindly point me towards the best location for anglers fishing from the shore? I have tried fishing in all the pools and never had good luck. I'm throwing plastics, spinners, chatters, anything someone can think of and have had 0 bites. Thank you.

Great day for fishing, except for the lack of fish. Ice was 6” in the pool by the south dam. Other fishermen out reported they weren’t having much luck either.

Went on Sunday for a few hours and found 2.5-3" clear ice topped with 1" of slush on top. Resource officers checking licenses as well. They reported some guys abusing the 2 line limit per person, sad to hear. Bald Eagle spotted on the lake as well.
