A couple years ago, we stayed at a lodge in Minaki. They gave us a map and highlighted where to fish. We weren't after muskies so that wasn't highlighted. If it's a totally new body of water for you then it might be best to pay for local help.

To be honest, an expert could give me 10 of their best musky spots and I still probably couldn't catch one. Since you only get a few chances of even seeing one in a day, they are really hard to pattern. A spot that worked once has never worked again. Spots that never worked suddenly produce.

I have not fished Minaki before but in my opinion your best bet is to study a map and pick a bunch of spots. I try to pick clusters of reefs, fallen trees or points that seem fishy. My idea is that I can hit up a bunch of structure that I can move around with the trolling motor. I try to avoid spots that only have one piece of decent structure as then you're pulling up the trolling motor quickly after working the spot. My thoughts are the more time spent fishing and less time traveling will increase your chances of catching one.

Hit as many spots as you can....fish fast and cover water to locate fish. Bucktails and topwaters are good for this.

In June-July-August(musky season opens 3rd Sat. in June) fish weedy (sandy, muddy) bays. If you can find cabbage weeds, you will locate musky eventually.
July-August-Sept fish more rocks, reefs, saddles, islands, points, and spots with deeper water near by. Fallen tree's hold musky just like they would hold bass. Boulders can be good too.

Thats a good d place to start...however musky can be deep in early season, and in shallow weeds later in the season. Only one way to find out!!!
