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.

    • well the seeds were planted four days ago and to my surprise when I checked them this morning they had already germinated. I will wait awhile before I tell you who was the winner.. Empirical testing at its best!
    • the make knives to cut them smaller!!!!!!!
    • Riiiiight... How come they didn't produce this document 8 years ago...
    • I would have started out at a young age, teaching them right from wrong. And that regardless of their gender tell them that I love them. When you make a mistake, you own up to it and be accountable. You do the crime, you do the time. And I that I still love them.
    • I thought you were AGAINST fake news now?
    • That's a good little tip.  I'll have to give it a try.  
    • I may not be an economist but it doesn't take a genius to realize that accumulating debt at the rate we are now accumulating it is a recipe for disaster. Debt is more than doubling every 8 years. There is no sign that debt accumulation will even slow down in the future and there is definitely no indication that we will start paying it down, unless you believe the Donald when he said he was going to eliminate debt in 8 years before he said he wasn't going to do that any more.   As Purple indicated above if you are OK with saddling your grandchildren with all of the debt that your and my generations accumulated and can sleep well at night then good for you. I think the party of accountability should start holding someone accountable but you and they just want to continue kicking the can down the road. What do you care? You won't live forever, right? Might as well let someone else worry about it.   Are all government policies rooted in fact? Everything that you or the party that you constantly support proposes is able to be defended by facts? What about all the morality laws, nothing based from religion is factual. Are abortion laws based on facts? How do you know if a woman should have ultimate control of their body? What are the facts that support it? How about gay rights laws? What facts do you have that support not allowing gay couples the same rights as heterosexual couples? What are the facts that support it being a bad idea that I buy a car or a 6 pack of beer on Sundays in Minnesota?   There are plenty of laws and Policies that are enacted by all types of politicians that are unable to be defended with facts.
    • Geez...we must fish the same lakes  Both of these posts above have become common now that "ice castling" has become the latest fad and everyone and their mother is on the ice.  There is an abnormally large % of those with the shiny new toy who chose only to save money on their generator, but spend as much as they possibly can on their truck and fish house.  I can spot them from a mile away...3-4 guys get out of the truck, they circle around the fish house a few times wondering how to get it lowered to the ice, then they finally figure it out, and 2 of the guys offload the residential home backup generator and carry it 100 yards away, 150 pulls later they get it fired up, and I only know because it's so loud it rattles the dishes in my cabinets.
