Oct 3-4-5 Weekend Destinations

17 posts in this topic

I'm headed up to Mille Lacs tomorrow with many of the FM crew for the 2nd Annual Fall Frenzy at Appeldoorn's Resort. Primary focus is walleyes but I'll spend some time on the muskies and try to work in some smallmouth fishing as well. Should be a good time.

While the Mille Lacs muskie scene has been awfully slow, I'm still going to see if I can move a fish or two. You would like to think a Fall bite will kick in, just a matter of where and when..... That said, the chance at a 40 inch class pike is always there too, not a bad consolation prize at all.

Good luck to all, both anglers and duck hunters!

Doubtful I will get out at all this weekend. Time for the "once weekend a month" [PoorWordUsage] for the National Guard! Might be able to sneak out early on Saturday however.

Duck opener in No. Dakota is where I'll be, but i'm thinking of dragging the boat as far as Alex to fish Miltona on the way back.

Good luck everyone!

I am heading out on Island, north of duluth. This weekend get rid of the weeks stresses.

Have fun over in Nodak....JR...I heard Miltona and Lobster have been decent...

Bret how has the fishing been?? I haven't been out on any of the usual lakes for a while now, so just kinda curious.

Dano, what have you heard about Island lately? Up until last week it was doing pretty well. Do you like the west or east basin?

I will be joining Cjac up on Mille Lacs. Might even work in a round in the bay in his boat. Looking forward to lots of time on the water this weekend. I will be heading up for an early afternoon arrival.

Props-- I am still learning the lake, I just started school up here, so most of my weekends are spend out there. I fish the West basin primarily-- and wow is there a lot of structure. I personally had some success last weekend, and am hoping to replicate it again this weekend. Island is really fun to fish it is a nice change from Mille Lacs, Alex, Shammy and Mantrap.

Do you fish up here also propster??? If you do, I could use some company most weekends, typically out solo.

This will be my first weekend since June not chasing muskies - I heard there's ducks to scare so I'll try that for a couple days.

Good luck to you all.

Dano:

Our usual lake has been on fire. Between my brother and Standfuss yesterday, they put 7 fish in the boat. Brother nailed a 48 as well yesterday. Bite has been hotter than all get out. Going to hit the water after work tomorrow and see if I can actually do some good. Missed a 46-47ish fish on Tuesday on a Hellhound. You are missing out brother!

Dano, we have only fished it a couple times, and all on the east, but not yet this year. We kept bypassing to fish Vermillion. If we head up that way will let you know. Structure overload is an understatement.

I'm jealous of all you guys getting out fishing. Just got back from a 2 week elk hunting trip so my October is choked up full of work now.

    • Looking for a Wild win tonight, I don't think Kemper is going to get the start in this important game. I don't think anyone likes the five day layoff. Typical got to mess with something that works instead of just playing. Wild will come out of the break with a lot of games to play and little time off to rest anyone.
    • Next up Grow Lights, I have a south facing window in my den that I use to start plants with. I have a big shelf at window height then I use glass blocks and put steel closet racks on top to set my plants on. I can stack about three levels high. Above all of this I have a three bulb flood light fixture This year I went out and bought three 15 watt grow lights. I had to buy some socket extenders so the grow lights would screw into the floodlight sockets. Tried them out last night and they are pretty dang bright. I am going to have them on during cloudy days and in the evening to see if they help promote growth. Any day now I should have some tobacco coming up and I will see if the lights help speed up their growth.

    • I think the Wild vs Jets games are pretty awesome atmosphere-wise. They have a lot of fans that travel down here for games too. It would appear to be a fun place to watch a game in Winnipeg for sure!
    •   And we've never won the war on homicide yet either
    • Have heard that's a fun arena to catch a game at.
    •     Actually I haven't advocated anything. Just pointing out the War on Drugs hasn't been a success along with skepticism that anyone can "win" it   I'll leave the debate of legalization and the pros and cons of doing such to others    
    • The problem of prescription abuse has been recognized on a national level, but it must not fit the agenda, since there was no funding appropriated to go with the legislation.         On the national level, Congress this year passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA), which increased to 275 the maximum number of patients for whom a physician can provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence. In a provision aimed at controlling usage and reducing diversion, the law allows prescribers or patients to request partial prescription refills and then opt to have the remainder filled within 30 days.
