Hey Lonewolf how was your winter? I'll be out tomorrow after work. There's alot of fish in the shallows, i'm talking in the docks so that might be where you want to start. Hey let me know how you do and i'll do the same. Phil.

Hey HuskyMusky, winter was to [PoorWordUsage] long. Ready to get out and start chasing muskies again. Leaving here at 4am. Stopping and picking up my dad. Should be on the lake by 6am. Thanks for the tip. We'll have to try the docks right away. I'll let you know how we do, or maybe we'll see you out on the lake. Not sure how long we'll be on the lake.

we got out about 3 stayed until 8, fished east lake and stayed shallow. We had 1 follow that went around on the figure 8 4 or 5 times then left and that was it for the afternoon. It was nice just to be out couldn't ask for a better day.

We fished on west and east okoboji until 2pm. Tried everything. The only fish we saw was when we were loading the boat on the trailer. Wasn't very big. We were on spirit lake until about 6pm. Didn't see a fish. A little disappointed, but it was nice to get out and start chasing muskies again.

I only got to fish evenings but 2 friends got to fish all day Wen, Thurs, Friday We raised alot of fish, rough count 35+ got 1 to hit a small sub 30". Saw a couple nice ones and alot of small ones. All fishing was done on West. Had 1 low to mid 40's to the boat twice Friday evening that seemed interested but still no go. Big baits was best for us. Winds howling today hope it goes down so I can get back at it.

We saw fish every place we fished, no 1 certain area. The basic normal muskie spots all had fish. Partner and a friend of his was out today 2 lost 6-7 follows. Cool water temps and little to no weed growth has made things interesting.

If the weather is decent tomorrow morning we are planning on heading down and fishing on East. We were planning on going this morning but there was just a little too mcuh wind from the wrong direction for us to be able to fish anywhere decent on any of the lakes.

    • I have nothing good to say about his presidency
    • So they called Reilly back up, but part of me is kind of hoping that Prosser plays. Earlier this year he was very solid. You never get elite level from him, but I think he was dependable out there and I have been a big critic of his for a long time. The ceiling is obviously higher for Reilly and I want him to be a regular at some point, but if he isn't going to get 10 mins a night he is better off in Iowa and play Prosser. What impresses me are these numbers: 141 goals for (Tied 4th), 96 goals against (tied #2), +45 differential (#2). When was the last time a Wild team was in the top 5 in goals scored? We have a very balanced team and it is fun to watch, which this balance is also why slumps by Parise and Pominville don't kill this team or at least haven't until this point. I will say it again, I was a huge proponent of signing Staal. NO, I didn't think he was going to be leading our team in scoring, but what I was excited about was that it would mean that Coyle/Granlund could play wing where they should be. Those two are playing great overall and both have been playing wing pretty much entire season thus far. We can also thank Gravovac for his role too because without him, one of the two would be playing center most likely.
    • I didn't get nearly as much done as I wanted, but I was able to take my new fish house out on the ice last weekend.  Fishing was slow for most of the weekend, but we had a good time otherwise.   I have some of the lights and tv mounted up temporarily till I start putting up the carsiding.  I'm just a little nervous about starting on the carsiding until I know exactly how to do my lift bunks.  I'd hate to put all that up and realize I don't have my furring in the right spot.   Furnace ducts are also ran temporarily, they'll be covered by cabinets when it's all said and done.  Most of the day saturday we didn't need the furnace anyways.  The sun kept it 10 degrees higher than what we set the furnace at!   Right now she's nothing pretty, but she got the job done without any problems on her initial trip.
    • Cooter ol' pal,  I think maybe you tend to skip over your inherent decency when you refer to President Obama as " a POS" My guess is you actually have a little more respect than that for a man to did the heavy lifting for the US for eight years and,  on more than one occasion,   has proven he is a decent man who really cares about the issues we face. You can disagree of course with some things-or all things for that matter-the man has done but he DOES deserve your respect. He is definitely not,  as you put it "a POS" and I'd guess you really have more class than that.
