Muskie Fishing Season
Muskies spawn later in the spring and the muskie fishing season is closed until the third Saturday in June to protect them. In late June and early July, they can be found near the spawning grounds in shallow bays with emerging weeds, or nearby rocky points, bars, or the saddles between islands. As the weeds thicken in July, look for a topwater muskie bite. You will not soon forget the sight of a muskie striking your surface lure.
With the warming water of summer, muskies can be found almost anywhere, from weedbeds to island points, to reefs, channels, and deep humps. Like 800 pound gorillas, they go wherever they want to, chasing food and comfortable conditions. Muskies are called the fish of 10,000 casts because they are such effective predators that they can lounge around in the knowledge that they will easily catch a meal whenever they are hungry. Be ready for the windows when a seemingly empty lake suddenly comes alive with hungry muskies chasing nearly every cast. These are the moments muskie anglers live for. Check out our Trophy Muskie Special Week with Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Famer Spence Petros.
The cooling water and shorter days of fall trigger muskies to feed heavily to build an egg mass and prepare for the rigors of winter.
