Congrats to Ole Matty... *Photos Added*

21 posts in this topic

Yepper... he got his new personal best... a beautiful 42" White Bear Lake muskie... hit a custom Black/Orange Gerry Girl at approx 9:20pm... The best feeling was watching the whole release process... and she really helped whole lot with the release as when she thrashed a bit in the net, she unhooked herself... Matty escalated himself to a whole different level... big difference between that Forest Lake Muskie from last year and the WBL muskie last nite... Cant wait to see the pics uploaded!!!

He also had a nice 40-inch class torpedo his Showgirl but she missed the lure...

I didnt get anything... but at least I got my new gloves and new net slimed!!! makes the money spent worthwhile!!!

that was good time! never tho its was muskie at first felt so light tap and rod just bend all of sudden at frist i was confuse a lil bit. tho it was northern or thick weeds then i saw the head and lure surfaced and tail was like 3 n half feet behind it. i was like oh holy i have to get this in fast! so i startin to reel in as its approachin boat its start to do their infamous death roll till larry netted it.. it was really nice one and not bad for my first "legal" muskie and first time on wbl ever,and the gerry girls arrived in mail yesterday morning to make it even better!

I wouldnt know how to tell if it was the Miss or Wisc strain... ... But she sure looked similar to my 43" I caught on Mille Lacs last year... She had a nice olive green back...

Nice work boys. It was good to see you. Larry, you have to at least try that pink mess I gave you one time!

I fished for about 3 hours until just after 3. No skis for me - 1 blow up on a topradier just after I saw you near the point on Manitou. Who says pike don't eat at night?! I caught three - go figure... We're off to Rainy tomorrow AM so I guess I'll finally give my bass and walleye gear some work.

    • After a quarter century in the construction sector I learned you should take your budget, double it and add another 10%. That gets most people in the ballpark anyway lol. 
    • You didn't even understand the question Junior. Do we need to get you a translator? 
    •   And then what? There's a saying that goes, "Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it."   You have a country of 300 some million individuals and a good number of that all have different ideas how to so call fix this. That's why we are set up as a representative republic and not a democracy.   You seem to be assuming most people will see things your way

    • Look my very own internet stalker making memes about me, such a proud day.

    • I guess the question is when are we going to get pizzed off enough to do something about it? Guess we aren't there yet.
    •   Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year  by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!
    •   Yep, had to fix a few of those switches and tell the wife and kids to let the motor stop before pounding it in reverse!!
    • Kind of crude image but here is what I'm looking at.
    • Access is in the middle but I'm not overly concerned with that.  I can seal it up and cut a new one.  I'm thinking about slide channels mounted on the wall with a steel or aluminum frame mounted to the channels that can slide up and down with a electric winch routed through a couple pulleys. 
    •   You and Bearsheet.................blame everyone but yourselves.  All you those grueling hours you 2 spent in Sillytown advocating for Gary "Hillary is great" Johnson.   #victim #noonegetsitbutyou
