First of all, "new" to the sport after a 15-year layoff of musky fishing. After seeing several on my first outing, I am back- wow is that fun!! The information you guys have put on this site has been awesome. THANKS! I want to find a good sized sucker to drop by the boat, where is a good place in the West Metro that might have some? I am having trouble finding some, Cabin Fever in Victoria is out for the year.

Let me clarify EsoxHunter- I would ONLY use a quick-strike rig for that very reason. I am a huge proponent of catch and release in general, especially for this fish. The last thing I would want to do is kill one of these awesome fish- I would rather not catch one at all.

Thanks for the info guys. Do these places generally carry them throughout the fall?

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!
    • Hey team, last miute success for the team...... nice tom too!!! Heading on vacation today will submit it mid next week when I get back. 22.11lbs with 10 3/4 beard. 
    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
