West Metro Tigers

8 posts in this topic

I'm taking my Dad out early on Sunday morning and he'd like a shot at a Muskie. There are quit a few options in that neck of the woods. (Pierson, Wasserman, Eagle, etc.) Any of you been doing any good on any of these lakes? My Dad has never landed a tiger and I would really like to put him on something (or at least give him a fighting chance!)

Any advice?

If you don't want to post it here shoot me an email. It's in my profile.

Thanks

I raised tiger on wasserman about three weeks ago. I saw another one sunning himself about five minutes before that.

Wasserman gets my vote too, nice to be able to cover the lake in one morning. 3/4oz spinnerbait and you'll have a great tiger bait as well as a bonus bass/northern lure too. I've had a few smaller tigers this year on that bait, still fun to catch though!

Weaver in Maple Grove is an option too, but traffic is up on the lake by 8:00AM on the weekends.

Good luck!

Thanks guys, I was thinking Wasserman and you just re affirmed my opinion. Nothing else, Pierson is close by as a back up plan.

Thanks for the imput.

Glad to help!

I've not been on Pierson, but I read the DNR lake survey info online. It talked about water quality issues. If you've been out there and it's not so bad it's definitely an option. Those surveys can be dated and somewhat misleading.

If boat activity picks up and makes it harder to cast, consider trolling a bit too with your bigger walleye/bass crankbaits. It can produce too.

I'll let you know how I do. I'm starting out on Wasserman and will move to Pierson if that doesn't work.

I hit Wasserman from 5am til noon today. You were righe cjac, white was the way to go! I boated 2 tigers, at 29 and 38 inches respectfully. And I got a bonus 36 inch northern! I fished bass for an hour and got several decent bucketmouths under the docks.

All the fish were shallow. (less than 6 feet) And as I said before, white was the color.

Thanks for all the tips!

    • I have been going to golden meadows lately to work my dog so far we have shot 24 birds over him. One more time at the preserve before the season starts and we are itching to get out in the real fields!  
    • Wow do the unicorns fly in your fantasy too?
    • Would you like me to put sugar in your medicine to make it taste better?
    • Unless: If no candidate wins an absolute majority in the Electoral College, the election is decided by the House of Representatives. Thus, if Johnson were to win, say, Colorado while Trump and Clinton split all other electoral votes 50-50, the House would pick the winner. Given that Trump and Clinton are the most unpopular candidates in recent history, a divided House might compromise by selecting Johnson, a former two-term (Republican) governor of New Mexico.
    • It's probably going to be late this year. I got my itch scratched at Traxlers reserve in LeCenter today at least so that helps but really for me the pheasant season doesn't get into high gear until after deer season. Normally the first few weeks are too warm to be out a whole day with the dogs and there are too many corn fields in. By the 3rd week in November the temps have dropped and the corn is mostly out and that's when it gets better and of course first snow...... I am fairly optimistic about the bird populations this year. Obviously the rain we had was a wildcard and it's hard to say right now how that has impacted populations but there was a good group of birds that carried over from last season and the winter didn't take too many.
    • You sound like Dingle when someone spells isn't without the apostrophe.  It's like he can't even comprehend the sentence.
    • I'm saying that the people get what they deserve and that includes us, you all and me too.  As one of the characters in catch-22 said.. "They can do anything you can't stop them from doing".   And we have allowed the Clintons, a pair of crooks from the git go, to gain control of the Democratic Party, with a brief hiccup from Obama who only got to congress by getting a machine judge to release his opponent's sealed divorce records.  And we allowed the Republicans to leave in place a setup that encouraged every doofus that could rub two nickels together to get in the race.   Michelle Bachman?  Rick Santorum?  Rand Paul?   and of course Donald Trump....   Throw ten or 20 of them on TV about 50 times and see what happens.  And we all mostly just ignored it so the celebrity with the media skills got the nod, because he articulated the rage and disgust of a significant part of the voters, and he didn't have to rely on contributions to campaign.     Now we are being told, in the words of La governor Edwards supporters.."Vote for the Crook.  It's important." So, yes we deserve what we got.  Now the decision is which of these two will do the least long term damage to the country.   Maybe Jill Stein or Gary Johnson would but it ain't gonna happen, and anyway they would be jesse'd (term invented by me) by the congress like Jesse Ventura was by the state legislature after the first term since Jill and Gary have no power base.
