got out last night for about 5 hours after work. Managed to raise 10 different fish, but no biters. Only a couple seemed really interested and turned back on the eight. Still pretty good to see 10 fish in a night.

For such a BEAUTIFUL the night on the lake, I couldn't believe the lack of guys out punching. Must have been an awful lot of fella's wishing the could be on the water cause it was sooooooooo nice!

I'm with you Musky18. Think I was fishing the same water as you and there were way more walleye fisherman out there than muskie fisherman. I was really suprised. We saw a few fish but only one I would call active. No hookups.

I made it out to Tonka yesterday chasing Muskies for my very first time, let me tell you it was a [PoorWordUsage] good day smile

Never caught a musky in my life, I've got plenty of large pike but no skis. Made a trip up to Thorne Brothers yesterday, picked up some new line, a nice DCG Jr and a Bull Dawg Spring. I lost the small Bull Dawg real early and wasn't very happy about it, so I went back in, fired up the truck and ran to Dick's to replace it (Also I was killing time while I waited for a friend). Got back out on the lake and I chose my first trolling spot based off of my very little knowledge of fishing deep bays and went at it. About 45 minutes into it, sure enough, I felt a tug that tugged back. No one else was in the boat and once I finally netted the thing I was shaking with such excitement and nervousness that I couldn't even get the hook out. At the time I was using a Regular Bull Dawg, as I lost the Spring one, hit Dick's and found only Regulars. Bull Dawg was Black and Green, trolling in about 12'. It took me about 10 minutes of leaning over the edge to attempt to revive this fish after I initially let it go and saw it belly up. Once I saw that beauty swim away I felt a ton better smile

Got it out of the water, got some cheers from two neighboring boats panfishing, and got it measured and pictured. Final length was only 39", but for your first fish, on your first day, of trying something completely new, I was [PoorWordUsage] satisfied.

A friend returned a call made earlier to him, he just got off work. I shot him an invitation to join me and so he did. Long story short, it ended up being his first Musky ever as well! 32" on the DCGJr in about 10'.

Back out today, I'm hooked smile

Hey Jeff. I'd be more then up for it! I live on Gray's Bay, so as long as I'm not busy I can be out almost any day or night (Woohoo Summer!).

My email is holland.joe@gmail.com if you would like to shoot me a message and we can get setup for an outing possibly early next week? I'm going to be at a friend's birthday all of tomorrow, walleye fishing on Mille Lacs on Sat, and Sunday Tonka is going to be a zoo, so I figure weekdays would be best, but Sunday is also a possibility.

I've got our boat on Gray's, and that's where it stays, so we can also figure out our boating situation, just shoot me an email and we'll get everything ship shape.

Nice way to break the ice for 08.

    • Drum roll please................. The clear cut winner was the sinking radish seed by a 4-1 margin over the floaters. I even gave the floaters an extra day to pop up but they didn’t. I know come planting time I am going to check my radish seed this way. I also hear this works for tomato seed so that may be my next experiment but not till I am ready to start growing my tomatoes. Peppers come to mind as another seed to try out.   Now the radish I have seeded will not go to waste I saw a program where a guy plants radish and lets it grow to about three inches then cuts the top two and half inches off. He sells the tops to restaurants who use it on plates and also in sandwiches. You are suppose to be able to eat the tops at this stage and it tastes like radish... Kind of like eating sprouts but only eating the top of the new growth not the bottom...
    • Yep, I have noticed that too. That is a good thing to have in your back pocket in playoffs and you get caught in your zone for an icing or who knows what reason where you cannot switch lines OR just to have flexibility with matchups line vs line, but faceoff on one side vs the other.
    • Meh, his exacts words were " I tried to set myself on fire."   Setting yourself a blaze is fairly simple and effective if you want to be on fire.   I'll put him in the bat poop crazy, drama queen Zoloft category along with a former girlfriend.   You know, the one that chokes down a handful of Bayer and chases it with a fifth of vodka then proceeds to call 911 right after. Then everyone has to listen why, all the while there was no real danger.   
    • To be honest, I think of the cross as representing a burial site of a fallen soldier.  I don't necessarily even think religion when I look at the thing. In my opinion it is not even a religious symbol in that context. But that's just me.
    • The reversible plank is what they were carrying when I picked it up.  I've just been calling it carsiding because it's what most people are more familiar with.    I have that all stained and polyurethaned on the smooth side.  To me the bead side looks kind of dated.
    • Something else to keep in mind. When I was bow hunting I learned judging distance is not as easy as one might think. The bow I used was not super fast so judging a deer to be at 30 yards when it was really 40 yards would mean missing.    In my experience, we over-estimate distance sometimes by quite a lot on open areas such as open fields or on a lake. On an open area one doesn't have anything to provide a size reference so we tend to think objects are closer than they really are. Sometimes we can be off by quite a bit.   It works just the opposite in the forest where we have lots of references for size. Most of the time when a guy says he shot his deer from 50 yards it is probably a good bet that it was not quite that far. Personally, I don't like to get too close to anyone else. When on open water I rarely fish where others are. This can sometimes work against me as there is probably a reason for them being there. When ice fishing I try to stay 50 yards or more away from others. At the very least, I don't want to be close enough that our lines could become crossed when handling fish. 
    • Exactly.     We don't need to compete with Christians and their War on Xmas for the King Crybaby award.
    • Unfortunately he is still in the gene pool. He suffered non-life threatening 3rd degree burns to his back. 
    • Like politics, fishing spots, antler size and Vexilar being better than Marcum?   Just the way I like it.
    • This. I am an atheist but I don't understand why these atheist groups feel the need to blow-up petty things like this. I think it brings more of a bad name to atheists more than it does anything else.
