Nice, way to go Erik... I was on WB earlier in the evening like 5:00pm to 8:30, and we had one follow. Guess we should have been out MUCH later.

BTW don't you work Erik? haha

Erik,

Nice looking fish!

Curious: Any observations in that 1/2 hour window? Anything change weather-wise? Or simply the right place at the right time?

It'll sound hokey and dumb, but we just lost our dad and about 5 minutes before the first fish I saw a shooting star and thought maybe the old guy was watching - maybe he helped a bit too. smile

I may just chalk it up to dumb luck!! As far as the weather, nothing major but I did notice a bank of clouds moving in AFTER I got the first one - they may have been there all along and I just didn't notice. I wish I was better at paying attention to that stuff. There were also a few very distant lightning flashes but nothing dangerous. It was also really weird that the water temp where the fish were was about 2.5 degrees warmer than the first couple spots where I had not action - I was surprised to see such a difference in temp in close proximity to each other. I found water as cold as 68.5 last night. These were also my first fish on the big 13 by Mayhem. I also missed two other fish ealier in the night. I was on a bad streak so I hope this will be the slump buster. I was also happy to have two safe releases both for me and the fish.

Quit being so humble... you've forgotten more things about WBL than anybody who knows that lake grin

Way to go on a multi-fish night... like CJAC said, you definitely put in whole lot of time on WBL... and Im fairly sure many of us will be expecting more pictures from you when the fall really arrives...

HugoBox even got me out tonight. But, of course, it was Gus this time who got the lucky lure... a 42-43" at about 12:30. I'll post picks later, it was a beauty nice and wide. This was his first musky on purpose, and biggest fish ever.

Erik had two strikes next to the boat but didn't hook them, and I went NADA, as usual smile

Here are pics of Gus' 42":

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
