I was there 3 weekends ago and they were biting good.I got two in the boat and lost two due to my drag set to tight. The two fish i lost were on glide baits.It always blows me away how fish of any kind can get all those treble hooks out of there mouth.The two boated were caught on a spinner bait with a pink curly tail grub on the back of it. Both fish were 38 inches and the lost ones were in that same range.All fish but one bit on figure 8.It is so awesome to watch those big fish eat your bait right at the boat.I think once November hits they go pretty deep.I've never done any good past October.
Nice work fever.I was down there the first 3 Saturdays of October.First day was major frontal conditions only 2 follows.Second time was the 4th day of stable wheather best day i have had there in awhile,15 follows 4 hook ups and 3 fish made it into the boat. A 34,36 and 40 incher. Does anyone know if the DNR is still stocking? I had a couple of follows of fish that were only 18-24 inches. Did not think those hybrid fish could reproduce.
It was my understanding that the musky stocked in the Forest were true musky, not a hybrid.
Yep, the eggs are collected from Webster and then trucked down to East Fork State Fish Hatchery near Glendale FWA where they're hatched. I took a tour of the place years ago and saw the muskie which looked like a million toothpicks floating in the water at the time. I know the tiger muskie were stocked in Sullivan Lake years ago, not sure if they were ever stocked in the forest.

Frost in the dugger unit or main forest? I'm not seeing it on a map?
The caption of the photo said Frost Lake, but the guy's last name was Frost. I'm thinking someone might have made a typo or something.
Bet you're right. I was just curious because I had never heard of a Frost Lake.
Does anyone target the muskie there through the ice? I bet that would be a blast to hook into one of those.
Isn't there a couple lakes over there that has access to the river through a creek or channel? I'm thinking those would be fun to fish through the ice, not knowing what you were going to pull through the hole. As you can tell, I'm anticipating fishing some hard water this year lol!!
