Shallow Musky Pics

8 posts in this topic

Earlier this week I mentioned in the "Musky Habits" post that we had groups of Musky around our dock all weekend. Here are some of our pictures. As you can see from the photos they spent a lot of time in water that was less that 10" deep. Just goes to show - next weekend you can never cast too close to shore!

Here is a single

Can you try getting us a few that are larger than thumbnail size? I didn't remember my magnifying glass today.

Hey bonefish...

I checked your photobucket account and it looks like those are the biggest you can do. Did you resize the shots before you loaded them to photobucket? That is the only reason I could see for having only the small sizes available. They are some pretty sweet shots though, wish they were a bit bigger. Next weekend should be a good time for those who go out. I am considering staying away from the skies for a couple more weeks until they are recovered better from the spawn.

They were transfered to me via snapfish, so I'm going to try to get the originals this weekend and re-post them. They make for a great screen saver!

    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
