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'll take them over walleye any day!!!
    • Ya know, it had been a while since I checked in here.  Seems the climate certainly has changed from the days when guys like Dietz Dittrich & Rob Kimm would foster some awesome discussion topics about fishing & the outdoors.  I'm sorry to see what this place has become.     To the guys who offered up honest answers to my inquiry, I thank you.  As for the rest of you, no wonder this once-great forum no longer is.  About the only reply missing to my initial question was, "Hey, you shoulda been here yesterday!"  Have fun liking each other's witty, zany posts, and enjoy the circle-jerk this forum has become.  From the sounds of things, you puds deserve each other.  Enjoy!
    • we have three other ones already.... but of a hoarder I guess lol
    • You guys wanna hear something funny?,  after all this jabber about the Bushmaster I dropped by the gun counter to see what the hell they were. You are right and so was I.....a very inexpensive plastic appliance sorta firearm.  I believe you are all correct it is an adequate weapon and from what I gather very dependable. If I want a simple, inexpensive weapon to repel boarders  I guess it would do so it may well be what the kid is looking for. Funny part is, a new Beretta 92FS left the store with me!  As you already know THAT is a serious and well crafted piece of machinery!! Ha Ha! And no,   I didn't need it. But it is big enough and heavy enough you could beat to death a charging buffalo!
    •   +1.  Any caliber outside of a BB gun will penetrate drywall.    
    • Do a google search of walnut hollow country turkey mount They make nice real wood ones   I ordered mine from them on amazon as it was cheaper on there for some reason They make ones without the picture on it if that's your style
    • Bushmasters are not bad I have shot a couple and they work just fine. Just think of it as a chevy Malibu. Yes there are Camaros and Corvettes out there but they come with a price. If you are just needing to get to work and back the Malibu is just fine if you want to go to the track the corvette is better. I am getting the drift he wants the gun in case you know what hits the fan well in that case the bush master will do. If he wants to do some serious shooting or competition 3 gun or whatever I would suggest otherwise.         As far as the wall penetrating debate Its all hog wash unless you are hitting studs the bullet is going through drywall with the exception of birdshot will stop after a wall or two     
    •   The importation of AKs was banned during the Obama administration, but there were a lot of them imported prior to the ban, so they are still available.  Probably not at big box stores, though.  You would have to shop around, and some of them bring high prices due to the mods made to them.   https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/banning-russian-made-ak-47s-sets-off-a-us-buying-frenzy/2014/08/31/ad6cbbde-2e0a-11e4-994d-202962a9150c_story.html
