Was out thursday from about 1:00Pm to 6:30pm or so and got 2 follows. Went back out friday night from about 6:30 till 11:45 between 3 guys had 3 follows on bucktails and one hot follow on a topwater but the guy using the topwater was a first timer and instead of the figure 8 he just pulled it right out of the water. Could have been his first musky on his first trip but maybe nextime. Pretty sure that me and my buddy will be out there this afternoon trying to get one. Got a 47" on sunday of opener on Wac.

Im out there almost every weekend and you will se a few boats that are musky fishing but most are bass fishing. So in my opinion it dosen't get heavy pressure.

Harty, have you been moving some fish out there? I went out for muskies for the first and second times this week, both on tonka and only had one follow.

My buddy and I have fished waconia at least 2 days every weekend since opener and have moved fish on all but 3 trips. Saturday of opener the first friday after opener and this last saturday the 28th were the only time we didnt see any thing. I think the only reason we didnt see any the friday after opener was because there were 4ft rollers and that made it hard to see any thing. All the other trips we moved multiple fish.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
