Muskie guys meet n greet?

16 posts in this topic

So in a thread a few weeks ago I mentioned a GTG on the St. Croix and a few people showed interest.

So, look at your calendars, anybody free over the next 3 weekends in August? We won't be able to please everyone but we'll try and pick a good date.

I was thinking of making a day of it, hoping for cooler/cloudy weather to drive the big boats away. Get out there and fish early and then meet up under the 94 bridge or close around 9-10am and meet/compare notes.

Thoughts?

I could make it the 15th or 22nd, sounds like a good plan.

Ok, i'm leaning towards this saturday, the 15th. Weather looks to be nice so i'll be hitting it EARLY and leaving by 10am or so, can't pay me to stay on that river past that time.

JRedig - where do you launch that you can get on EARLY???

My buddies b-day party is Friday night and if we find a sitter it could be a long night, if not and the crib midgets are with it will be an early night, so I can neither confirm nor deny my participation at this point.

I'd be available Sat. if someone has an open seat. I have my own gear, I just don't know the river or where to start so I'd leave my boat at home.

I've got a pass for the bluffs launch and i'm usually sitting at the gate an hour before it opens. Twice i've gotten in early doing that...heh.

You can go to Windmill or whatever it's called in Afton. They don't open till 6 or something but you can pay when you take out. I've always got there before anybody's working. It's a little steep on the weekends. $20 I think. That's almost more than some tournaments!

Looks like I can't make it on the 15th, but maybe another time this year or next. Good luck out there.

I can do that. Brent, you can jump in with me if you want, I'll be launching in Stillwater but I can meet ya under the bridge whenever. Most of my spots are down that way anyhow.

J, if it falls through I'd stop and say hi out on white bear too.

Meet N Greet... on the water of off the water, doesn't matter to me. smile I'm busy this weekend or I'd try and hop in someone's boat. Maybe getting out of Cjac's boat will be the ticket to success. grin Sorry buddy, had to go there. wink I'm always game for a [PoorWordUsage] session at perennial fave, Decoy's in WBL as well.

Ok, ran into some boat problems last night, not sure if I can make this work. It's just trolling motor battery issues, but between two dead batteries and a dead onboard charger, it's a steep price to fix. I'll know more after a cabela's run for lunch today...

EDIT: Skip cabela's, found a steal of a price for a new onboard charger from dual pro in their reconditioned items, so hopefully they'll ship it fast enough that I can use it...so maybe this will still happen!

I've been doing quite well at catching fish every time you're NOT in my boat, so you being unavailable may be a good thing!

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
