Wasn't out after skis this weekend but the pike and bass were pretty active under the overcast skies. Actually come to think of it my brother had the better luck, up until he forgot to check his line...

Got my uncle and cousins out for free fishing weekend though, that's always a plus. Even got them a few fish...

Rough stuff for me. We got a surface strike this morning but that could have been a big bass. Nothing else.

I had the same type of day you did, rincrat. Two days in a row actually.

Cold, wet and nothing moving. Kind of frusterating, but that's muskie fishing. Only makes it that much sweeter when you finally see one and hook up.

Opening day was OK with a 42 and a 47 before noon. We also caught 2 40+ Pike late in the evening. The Muskies were both caught on Dbl 8 Glittertails and both of the Pike were caught on a 7 inch Grandma.

All of the fish were caught in less than 6ft of water.

No problem,

If you don't mind, can you send me an email anyway? I'd like to ask you some questions and maybe we'll figure something out in the future.

Good luck

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
