Weekend plans!

15 posts in this topic

Ok, what are you all up to?

My weekend starts tomorrow, heading to the Big Pond for thurs/fri then back in the cities for the rest of the weekend. Plan on fishing for a majority of it.

Let's see if this monster curly sue with a walleye body and huge white tail turns anyone on!!!

Jeff -

Good luck on the pond. I'm in town - took Monday and Tuesday next week off as well so depending on my real boss and Mother Nature maybe you want to do a morning shot before work like last week.

Take care - erik

Not fishing this weekend. Only got out for a few hours on Monday morning. Starting next week I will be hitting it hard for rest of the year.

Jredig,

Stay south and work anything green you can find. Simple as that. Twin Bays, Wahkon, Cove, Sunset, etc. Run East over to Vineland too, check out the cabbage fields. Slow roll the spinnerbaits and the Dawgs. Thre is a misnomer that Mille fish don't eat in June....wrong.

Me........going cattin' tomorrow night! Pretty excited, should be fun. Weekend may be up to the family cabin where the northerns were active last weekend. If not, TC area tigers are on the bill.

Good luck to all.

Plans to hit Miltona this weekend, along with Alexander. Moved a couple of big fish on Alex. Weeds should be starting to come into their own on Miltona and with the warm weather I hope the Muskies are hungry!!

Hey Chris, i'll be mostly in Vineland as I'm staying at the cabin there, we'll see how the wind is for my little dingy....that'll dictate where i'm fishing.

Good luck everyone!

Two buddies coming up... we are going to try our luck at some SW metro musky/pike action. I hope the weather is fishable... I don't mind the clouds and sprinkles, but the high wind and lightning aren't cool. I'll let you know how we do.

Let's see, before the 4th of July there is a trailer to repair, a pair of 20 amp circuits to wire in the cabin, 4 upstairs walls to insulate, even more walls upstairs to sheetrock, and almost as much surface to put a ceiling up on, as well as getting the plumbing in for the upstairs bathroom. I might get to go fishing sometime...

18 hrs on tonka... three tiny pike, two tiny bass, and one 25" musky. Obviously, I am looking in the wrong spots.

Well, Mille Lacs was all about pike. Caught 5 near 40 inches and a bunch more smaller. I moved probably 30+ muskies too, only 1 was REALLY on the bait, the rest were really REALLY lazy follows. Spent most of my time out around Spirit Island and south of there on the breaks. Saw the biggest muskie to date, just a monster that followed 2-3 times but wouldn't bite. In a whole different class than anything i've seen or caught up to this point.

Came home to the metro Saturday morning, went out Saturday night from 7pm to 10pm and caught 1 and had another follow. Went out again this morning and caught a 46-47 within an hour of being out, had follows from 4-5 more, but all were behind my dad's lures and he didn't exactly play them well as it was his second time muskie fishing. Two ate the lure and he missed the hook set right at the boat....DOH!!!

Water temps anywhere from 72-78 down here, fish are really going now. Mille Lacs was around 66-67 and the fish are certainly there but seem very cautious or just not hungry/super active yet.

Hope everyone else is having a great weekend still! Let's hear how everyone else did! smile

Worked the weekend, but spending most this upcoming week on Mantrap. Looks like it'll be some nice weather for boating fish around the new moon!

Just got back from LOW/Sabaskong, fished from 6/25 to 6/28. Took a day to figure out the pattern but ended up with 5 boated and couple long lined realeased for 2 guys. Saw quite a few more, but no biggies. Biggest fish of the trip was a fat 46". All fish were in less than 8 fow in thick emerging cabbage. Spinnerbaits caught all the fish. Checked by the Miniisty on Sat and it sounded like we were doing better than most. The 46" still had eggs in her. Very few fish on the rocks yet. Wallyes are still mostly on the jig/minnow bite, the lake is a good 2 weeks behind. Mayflies hatched out on 6/25 in hordes, just clouds above the islands and crunch with every step. Great trip

    • D2E has a little Comet Ping Pong bouncing bouncing around in his head.   #pizzagateislikerealman
    • Except for the fact that to Hillary Minneapolis/ St Paul is rural fly over territory. Outstate doesn't even exist and I would rather that rural areas are left to make their own choices rather than have what they do be dictated by the Capital.    If you ever ran a small city hall and saw the additional dollars it takes to do an infrastructure project with the USDA involved you might think a bit differently about all the " help" big government provides. 
    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
