Season Opener- Where will you be???

41 posts in this topic

This year will mark the 2nd year in a row I've missed the MN Muskie season opener... last year was cuz of the laceration on my palm, as few of you remember...

I'll be flying to Denver to meet my son whos flying in from Austin... We'll be back home approx 5:30pm same day... Hes with me for the whole summer...

I'll probably do some reading and day-dreaming about casting DCGs and Super-D's while in the air... and would like to wish you all best of luck!!! I'll be green w/ envy knowing that all of you are out there fishing for them...

Once back home, its working overtime on the boat...

Since I don't have a boat ( she got it in the settlement ) I will be on Leech Lake with a friend tossing all the new lures from the Expo, Reeds, Thorne Bros, and e auctions.

Last year on Leech, I c & r two opening day fish - 42 1/2 and 44. Saw a few others. This was the best opener for me and the last for my boat. (Never fear - I hope to have another boat soon)

I won't be going anywhere this year, I guess I'll just have to be happy fishing Vermilion for the Muskie opener, again this year. smile

Great thing about that is it's seldome very crowed up here in June for Muskies. All the "so called experts" think it's way to early in the season to fish this far north.

I will most likey have all my best spots, all to myself, for a few weeks anyway. I'll be pounding the shallows to a froth an working the edges of some of the deeper drops close to the spawning areas.

Counting the days!!

Must be rough Ace, having to fish a questionable water like Vermilion. LOL I'll be on French if I can get my boat in the water or it'll be a metro lake.

We are camping fri-Mon. Slow rolling DCG's at midnight is on the agenda! Other than that, it should be a nice relaxing weekend of fishing a few hours here and a few hours there.

Hey Dan,

You are welcome to come up and see me on the "Big V" any time.

I know it's a long way from your home waters, but it's well worth the trip. Just bring the subways and we'll make a day of it. I love the toasted Italian salami.

Good Luck this weekend. smile

    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
    • Wow .. Sprinkler!!  Wonder where and when we can get one!!
    • Thanks for the advice guys...keep it coming!   Much appreciated before I make a pretty expensive investment.   Ref
    •   I stated they are better than 3/4 yrs ago compared to themselves...my point is the Wild are far from a top tier top 8 team when it counts come playoff playoff time...period...no arguing what just happened.  BB was very vocal in the Presser..."we need to get Bigger/Stronger" and Fletch missed that boat time and time again. Career Years are great personal stats...am I happy for Granlund, Staal, Nino...yes...but personal stats only gets you more personal $$, but if those stats don't translate into team goals they are all for naught....and every NHL Player will tell you that. They did exceed my reg season projection but their true colors showed losing in the first round so over all I was spot on  IMO this team will be missing more than one of these "career year" guys by the start of the new season if BB has more say...and I am getting the feeling he will be getting more say on personel.
