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 long hours of hard lookin at the pics.*which I put it on wall at my work!* I m very certain its wisc strain. But it had dots on the fins so I dunno if its normally for wisc strain muskies?

    • Good luck Anyfish2. Saw quite a few out in the rain driving home today    
    • Well, i will try my hand at picking up another bird for the team starting tomorrow.  Weather looks to be challenging at best over the next 7 days.  I will give my best effort when i can get out.   Birds are still hanging around the area well,  hopefully i can get a tom to break from the Hens.  
    • and this?   
    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
