Muskies are making a mark

8 posts in this topic

Its so important that Muskie anglers wear a Muskie hat or shirt or just go to the local businesses and support them; always ask if the Muskies are moving, those that are against Muskies feel you do not exist due to the fact there are few Muskies Inc members, I hear it constantly.

Show Muskies your support by dropping a few bucks and talking to the people wherever you go about Muskies.

Have a great season....

Muskie opener on Vermilion draws big crowd

Star Tribune

Last update: June 9, 2009 - 9:19 PM

Just how big has muskie fishing become in Minnesota?

Muskie anglers descended on Lake Vermilion for the muskie opener Saturday.

"Quite a few fish were talked about, and a few smaller fish were boated and released,'' DNR conservation officer Brad Schultz reported. "A couple business owners in town stated that this past weekend was busier than Memorial weekend or the walleye opener." Muskie anglers also reported good action on Twin Cities metro lakes.

Meanwhile, the cold front around the state didn't help fishing. Todd Langevin of Center City summed it up in his weekly report: "The area lakes produced little to no fish." But elsewhere, including Lake Mille Lacs and Upper Red Lake, anglers did well.

I'm pretty sure he was talking about the cold front and its effect on fishing in general with that last line.

    • Branson is sort of in a transition, since they weren't going to survive catering to a population that's mostly dead now.   I've heard it's getting more interesting for people under the age of 75.     I grew up about 45 minutes from there.   We used to cruise through there on Friday nights and chat up bored out of their mind girls on vacation with grandma and grandpa.     The surrounding area is beautiful, once you get off the highway and away from the billion billboards.

    • Does anyone have any good ideas, memories, experiences with any hunting trips that they would like to share?  My dad is turning 60 in a year and a half and I would really like to plan a once in a life trip that I can buy him.  That being said, I can not spend 20 grand on a 2 man moose hunt in Alaska and that is being generous on the cost of that one, more like 30 plus.   Looking for a moose, caribou like trip.  He has shot a big muley in the past and an elk, so that may not be top on his list anymore.   Just looking for ideas.  Thanks much.

    • Have not been around here much but always enjoy the "Turkey Talk" Count me in. Hunting Minnesota and Wisconsin. Archery for both.  
    • I put my feeders out 1st of May usually. Such a neat bird. We usually only have a few so they are territorial here. Fun to watch one guard a feeder and then zip down when another one comes. Maybe they get along in bigger numbers?   Up north at daughters inlaws on a lake the neighbors have 4 feeders under a big pine and usually a bunch of hummers. Saw about 15 one time and they got along fine. Pretty neat. 
    •   So that's the evidence you have about illegal wiretaps that apparently nobody else has besides Trump?  That Obama's a bad (or sick) guy?   Try harder.   
    • Yup, everytime i call you or del out to put up the truth about your own bodies, you dodge. Wouldn't that be the ultimate proof that your way of addressing personal health and wellness is more effective in preventing and healing?  I think you guys have an idea from what you've been told and not what you bring yourself to learn and you never put anything to use so, who are you really to share your opinion? A couple of blowhards, thats who.
    • What crankbaits do you like for the 7-9ft range?   Looking for something that casts/have action like a DT-10, but doesn't run quite as deep. I have some SK series 4, but they have the wider wobble which sometimes I don't want. The SK series 3's just don't cast that far, especially in a wind. Same with some others, they always seem to be smaller in this range.   Thanks.
