Images

Keep in mind that I am always looking for images for our newsletter; fish, sunsets, sunrises, other anglers fishing, equipment, anything fishing related. I can use them all.  Large, unedited images are best. Thanks.

Where have all the Musky gone?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Stephen Glassic yesterday. 11 Replies

Maybe it's just me, but it seems like there are just not as many muskies as in the past in the upper river. I usually contact a fish every eight to ten hours, with a follow or a weak nip hit on a…Read More

"JoJo:  Mike Crehan and I fished the north and south gaps last Friday for 5 hours. Four baits so that is a lot of presentation with no fish. But we saw I would say about 500 cormorants on the breakwall, maybe more. "

"I have had the pleasure of fishing with Scott 3 or 4 times this season. To say he fishes hard is an understatement. His bait is in the water 100% of the time. He covers more water than you can imagine. He'll even croon his "here musky,…"

John Miller replied to Scott Kitchen's discussion Where have all the Musky gone?
"Scott, you are correct! By my estimations at least. Less fish now but, big fish opportunities. A lot of variables to consider when trying to answer why. Is increased angler effort in the last 10 years a likely culprit? I don't know."

Where have all the Musky gone?

Maybe it's just me, but it seems like there are just not as many muskies as in the past in the upper river. I usually contact a fish every eight to ten hours, with a follow or a weak nip hit on a tube or a hit on a trolling lure.   This year I have landed one fish and had two for a few seconds on tubes and that is it. Not a single follow. I am fishing the same way in the same spots as I have for years.  I am mixing it up, trolling, casting, slow tubing, fast tubing, slow swim shad, fast swim…See More

Nope, east river. I've been consistently finding shallow fish though. I've had 7 or 8 fish follow to the boat out of 10 fow or less. All 34 to 44 range

Scott: It would be helpful if you would do the ADS online (it would save me data input time after the season is over. But I also want you to keep the book so I can cross-check.
