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

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
