Should have no trouble with the muskie just go out in the lake, a bit early for them in the river yet. Wallies might be hard to find this time of year, they are there but in deeper water. Bass I don't target.

Ive heard big white baits are the way to go for skis? can you advise on that?

I don't target them. Every year you will get 1 or 2 on trolling for walleye with wormharness, never manage to get them in. From what I hear on local forum is go west of the mouth towards belleriver. If the weather is good I would think anywhere around the hump, which is off of Belleriver out about 4 miles. Can catch pretty much anything there.

There is lots of information on the WEB about LSC muskie.

good luck

I've heard the jet ski population is nuts in those parts this year.
