2006 Musky List & Fishing Report Print E-mail

2006 MUSKY LIST and FISHING REPORT

2006 turned out to be TERRIFIC year on the waters. As we closed last year, there was a small element of worry from those “old resorters” who have seen Teal and Lost Land Lakes through the years (Tim Ross, on Teal Lake and Dick Thearin, Northland Lodge on Lost land Lake, who grew up together on these lakes).   However, 2006 blew all worries away……

THE COUNT IS UP of musky 34” or larger, way up; the bass fishing was terrific; the walleye were even there for those who like to accommodate to the walleye’s new dinner hour (evenings!), the crappie reported for the Crappie-a-thon were up. And to make it better yet, we would normally have blamed the fishing on bad weather (too hot, mostly, and late turning in the fall!) – but nobody blamed anything on anybody because the fishing was super.

85 legal musky from these lakes were recorded in 2006 on our chart here on Teal Lake (a rise of 64% from last year). The results were  similar on Lost Land Lake.   The average size was up just a squeak, 38.0”, from 37.8” last year – can we dream of an average of 40” next year?

FALL FISHING was a delight with the old pattern returning of great Fall fishing.   September was grand, with 20 musky over 34” and 8 of those over 40”. The season ended with some splendid fish (and splendid fishing days) in late October and November, the last being 46” but he earned that last fish in the icy conditions!  

HOMETOWN is always an interesting question, but in getting our chart typed up, and on the web for you all to check, we were struck by the distribution  of the hometowns of our fishermen. (Yes, the fishermen, not the fish!). Even in 2006, the year of astronomically high gas prices to get to Teal Lake, 38% were still from Illinois. Last year 48%  were from Illinois, and both years had 9 states listed as hometown. We are delighted to know that Teal Lake is still worth traveling to, and is still giving such vacationing pleasure to people from so far.

The big DNR meeting in June for fishing input and future goals was a strange day: all interested in the Quiet Lakes were invited to participate, and they did get a good mix. However, the conclusion was also good: it was “Please don’t change a thing – we like our lake the way it is, and the population of our fish they way it is. A few more big walleye might be nice, but otherwise, please don’t diddle with it."
