Very interested in your progress Musky Fishing in Black Lake. Were you able to get a look at the fish that you had on? I know there are Muskies in the lake. I have only had hold of two that I know of in my life and that was back in the sixtys. Catch & Release!!!

Just a face full of teeth and a swirl. Top Water action worked well.
Famous,/ ifamous musky fisherman, Len Hartman wrote of his visits to BL for muskies back in the bad old days of fraudulent competition fo a Worlds Record musky. He and his wife spent time at the causeway catching muskies from shore!
That's a stunt for sure.
Len later confessed to buying muskies from native american commercial fisherman to enter contests against Art Lawton.

Guess you saw more than I did when I had hold of one. It was funny how it happened. My Dad, rest his fisherman soul, wanted to trade me a S3 Pearl surface Flatfish that he never had any luck on, for another lure. It was in the evening and almost dark. I made one cast and the pole bent in half and headed out of the bay. Never saw the fish - just pure power. Make it short - it broke the pole and I kissed my new lure away. Here's wishing you all the luck in your endeaver for the Muskies. Catch & Release!!!!

Gotta just keep plugging, (you need to upgrade the gear a bit though).
Tight lines and let'em go. Let 'em all go.

Updated my equipment that very day. Havn't had any luck with the big fish since. At my current age I don't think I would know how to handle one if it did strike. :D :D Here's good luck to all of you out there that do put in the hours after your pursuit. Catch & Release.

22 manhours on the hunt. Had 2 aggressive follows and 2 completely missed separate strikes. All action on topwaters. The 3 fish I got a look at looked to be in the mid 40" range.
One of the followers started to chase the figure 8 at the boat but never completed the 2nd turn before swimming away. That fish has a fresh lamprey sore just behind the top of her head.
Saw another sturgeon jump clear out of the water.

:D Hot and muggy. Some weed beds still producing bait fish.
Spent 10 hours on the water with First Mate ( net operator). Had 2 strong follows and lost 1 good fish. I am going barbless the final few trips this year and have lost 2 fish since the experiment began. Hmmmm.
Still, a great time on the water!

Actually better than most. The crazy high water has the fish concentrated in just a few spots and competing for food.
Phil, did you get the photo from our 2012 catch? it's my favorite pic.

:?: I wonder if anyone has a theory as to where the muskies go after the weeds die.
We haven't dialed the fall bite in yet.
