4 posts in this topic

Trying to plan a trip to the Big V, and wondering if mid October would be good or whould I wait until the end of the month?

Not a Muskie guy up there but I go second weekend in Oct for Walleyes and water temps are usually mid 50's. No one else is on the lake, whitefish and tullibee are up spawning and I would guess the Muskie are going by this time. I do sneak up there later in Oct and into Nov a little and the weather significantly declines after mid Oct as far as ice and blizzards go but if that does not bother you I would go later. I think second week in Oct is the true start to fall fishin.

hopper - highly advise you get on some of the other musky sites and search vermillion reports and discussions from the last 2 or 3 years. i think you'll find all the info you need right there if you don't get any tips here. previous post had some good info too as far as going later and braving the weather from what i've heard about late season there.

    • WOWZER what a beast!!!!!!!!!!! that DNR  biologist, Mero, i had a talk with him he did the creel survey on our little lake up in itasca county, odd that he would comment about mille lacs since he was out of the grand rapids DNR  office!!!!!! good guy though!!!!!!
    • Crud. I knew that would come back on me. I'll haveta head up to leeches and borrow some of his table doilies.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
    • IDK, people pick apart the Hanzal/White trade as a mistake, but I don't. I think it was totally worth the shot to make a solid push. Going in everyone who did any analysis knew the first round was going to be full of 2nd round talent so losing a 1st rounder this year wasn't giving up much. I also don't think Fletch should make a trade for the sake of making a trade either. That is a desperation move and not one fueled by focusing on getting the team better. I would be shocked if someone like Scandella isn't moved in order to make room from Granlund, Nino, etc. We are really tight now with the guys we want to keep and have a few holes to fill beyond that so something has to give.
    • Garretson Food Center..... $1.69/ pound You are exactly right.... And if you vacuum seal it with some of the drippings, this winter it will taste like it was fresh off the smoker!
