    Hello, I'm brand new on here. I wanted to let you guys know that there is at least 1 Musky still in the lake. My brothers and I were in about 7' of water and I had my camera down watching for anything interesting. I couldn't believe what swam into view. At least a 30" musky. It was amazing. I thought I must be wrong so I showed my brother and got a Holy crap out of it. There wasn't a ton of activity but what we did see was pretty good.

    You can set up your email, so that anytime there's a post on a thread you've commented in, you will get an update sent to you. I commented somewhere in there years ago, so that's why I saw it. Anytime you need anything, just ask, most are willing to help anyone new out. And lots of times other members that have known each other for years will badger each other back and forth, but to the unknowing, it looks like someone is being a real d..k..:lol:

    Anything is possible but, if it was a musky it's there by accident or someone put it in there. It isn't "left" either since they only had Tiger Muskies in there, no natural reproduction.

    Either way nice size fish!

    Usually the vis is pretty low in that lake from the few times I've ice fished it, decent vis otherwise.

    Pike? lots of people confuse them with muskie.. Chances of it being a muskie are very slim as Corey said.
