For the muskie anglers we are at the peak weather for summer aggressive fish that love the heat of the summer. Good lakes that provide great opportunities to catch that fish of a lifetime are Deer, Moose, North Star, Spider, Cutfoot Lakes, and portions of the Mississippi River above the Blandin Dam. Another location is the Bigfork River. Relatively under fished, it is a scenic and beautiful opportunity to visit one of the most majestic rivers in Minnesota and catch a muskie. Navigated with a smaller craft there have been multiple sightings of muskies around every turn. The bonus of the Bigfork is the many encounters of wildlife that is mostly undisturbed. Deer, Black Bears, Otter, and an occasional Moose have been sighted while fishing the Bigfork.
