21 posts in this topic

Yep... heading up tonight for the full-day trip with Steve Jonesi tomorrow... weather conditions looks so promising...

Talked with Steve yesterday... the fish are moving... he's getting excited about tomorrow too...

Bret... I'll be sure to tell "SHE" you said hello... and hopefully she'll like you enough to let you have a turn at her next year...

Good luck to you all who will be out tomorrow night... its FULL MOON, baby!

Im very pumped about this... It'll be a "Last Man Standing" fishing marathon... and I sure wont be the one to say "I quit"...

Good luck out there. I'm itching to get out anywhere, but Mille Lacs this time of year would be incredible.

You should pay someone to come take pictures in case "she" follows but doesn't bite. And i know that's an unreasonable idea haha, but I'd love to get a look at that fish.

Ah Reb, you'll take enough breaks and have enough backlashes that you'll still be well rested smile

Good luck - as tough as it's been I'm glad he's got something figured out for you. Catch a big one.

Well... Im back home safe and sound, totally SORE all over, surprised that I just woke up after sleeping for over 12 hours... enjoying the windburn on my face... assimilating all those info I learned out there from Steve, the lake, and my experience from 10:30 am til 9ish pm...

My arm's ready to fall off after throwing nothing but 11" Curly Sues, Mag Dawgs, Mag Heli Dawgs, Super Cowgirls, and Cowgirls... We hit several spots HARD...

NO FISH caught, NO FISH seen, NO BITES at all... Given my luck in 2008, I was kinda expecting that but I really felt bad for Steve... He was SO pumped about the whole thing... Nobody in that boat wanted me to catch a nice one more than Steve... He definitely was a top-notch guide... a top-notch guy...and he's hired for 2009... date to be determined...

Dec 1st is starting to look so glum... Am hoping that my next few outings will change all that... if I do get any... Maybe I should just put away everything, and just put myself in front of this computer, and start writing a Minnesota version of the "Time on the Water" relating to my 2 years of muskie fishing...

Ouch, sorry to hear that reb. It definately wasn't from a lack of effort that you didn't catch one though. Hopefully next year Mille Lacs will be back on and you can put some teeth marks in all of your new lures. Good luck if you do make it back out.

Don't feel so bad Rebel, I got it handed to me out there last Saturday as well. It's been a tough year out on Mille Lacs. I have never been out with Steve, but I have talked to him at Red Door several times before getting on the water and he is a stand-up guy. He was willing to give out info. on what had been working for him as of late, and to me that was pretty cool considering he is a guide. A lot of them don't give out any info., not the case with Steve. Also, a very fun guy to talk to in general, not to mention, a heck of a fisherman.

Hey, it beat working yesterday Reb, I missed a trip out because of office obligations (that's my professional of saying work is [PoorWordUsage] & is interfering with my fishing).

Pretty crazy, but I'm passing up a weekend trip to Mille Lacs, between muskies and the walleyes I just haven't done anything up there, not too many have been really. Imagine a guy saying that a year or two ago?

... I think I'll stick to the lakes down here from now on... people are catching them down here while on Mille Lacs... dead most of the time... from what I do know, most of the big-name muskie guides fled to Miltona area... Steve chose to stay at Mille Lacs and ride the storm out...

A friend and I were out on Miltona for 10 hours on 10/15. Didn't have much better luck there. Got pounded by waves & wind the whole time. No catches, no sightings, no follows ... But it was great just being out there heaving the big stuff with some new gear. We were only one of about two boats on the whole lake.

My partner did hookup a nice Pike on a smaller bucktail, and caught a SWEET 20# anchor on a Bull Dawg ... it was a keeper grin

    • So lets recap.   Decriminalization will not reduce prison populations by a noticeable amount.    Will not reduce crime.   Will not reduce monies spent combating drug suppliers and dealers.   Will not lower the consumption rates.    - Will allow regular everyday citizens who use/possess and get caught, not ruin their lives with a crippling criminal record.   May encourage the the habitual users to seek treatment/help.      Which I have no issues with.   My issues are saying with decriminalization it will save tax payers any money.   That's my beef.    
    •   I didn't see the Socialist party listed

    • Nick they are all trash, your party included, until you figure that out you are no better than some blind Trump supporter.
    •   That was a long time ago.   The media has become far more partisan than it was at that time.   

    • You are starting to sound like a helpless snowflake in desperate need of big government to take away the burden of personal responsibility away from you. I try and take a big picture approach and not mico manage our laws based on political views outside of science or common sense.

      No one is advocating for drunk driving or murder to be legal but I guess that doesn't stop you from using wild assumptions without anything to back them up.

      All most of us are asking for is simple freedoms and choices and a government that stays out of the way. Having a bunch of drugs that kill and half of the legal and half of them illegal makes no sense. You either stand for personal freedom and responsibility across the board or you don't, picking and choose this stuff based on political leanings is about as backwards as it gets and you just end up looking like a complete hypocrite. Keeping drugs outlawed because people die is the same kind of reasoning people use to take away guns. All the while you are more likely to die from eating too much McDonalds, you simply can't outlaw stupid people or the things they do and expect that to work. We as a people need to stop trying to control things are completely out of our control, all it does is waste tons of money and time and it does a wonderful job of ruining people's lives.
    • I really don't like a president calling out news media outlets by name and whining about the media. Obama did it with FOX and talk radio and now Trump is doing it with CNN and the NYT's. It's one thing for each men's supporters to do it. But I don't recall GWB or Reagan or Carter calling out the media by name in public.   I don't buy the claim from some(nobody here) that doing such is a sign of a dictator(the same, btw, who cheered BHO doing it). It just makes a president look weak and whiny and looking for other's to blame for their own failures. Not that I'm a fan of the NYT's, but I do believe in freedom of the press even the press I personally don't care much for.   If you're an elected official, the press is supposed to be a thorn in your side
    •   This is what Del was probably talking about and yes he is right, we do have to pick a side or at least a candidate when we go to the polling booth but there is no need to defend every single move the candidate makes and vilify every single move the opposition makes.      I'm not sure what makes us think and behave the way we do, I didn't take enough psychology or anthropology courses in college to answer that question but I do know that to me it is even more repulsive than the small minded thinking that goes in to hating one sports team although they are basically the same as your chosen sports team. I can see liking and rooting for one sports team or political faction over another but the pure hatred for the opposite team is mind boggling to me.     These are the fine points of this article as I see it. Now would anyone like to have a discussion on these points?
    •   This paragraph is important because I believe that most people now when faced with a political discussion do indeed "turn off their intellect". It's the only way to get through the hypocrisy that arises when one chooses a side so completely.

    • 2.27.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   Ice conditions are still favorable with 20-24 inches of solid ice in non-current areas. Snow cover is minimal on snowmobile trails but are still being groomed and in good condition.   On the Minnesota side, we are seeing walleyes being caught  on shallower rock points between 20-24 feet as well as deeper mud between 28-30 feet. A good number of saugers and perch are also being produced. Black and gold have been performing very well using a variety of baits. Canada is still producing but the crappie bite has been hot and cold within the last week. Walleyes are are most active on rock humps with successful colors being, blue and white, pink and gold.   Until next week! Sunset Lodge Ice Team
