Muskies or BUST from here on out!

14 posts in this topic

Well, I broke down the rest of the gear and only left the muskie combos in service. Realistically, I'm looking at the next two weekends, three if I press it. I wanted to hit 'tonka or Mille again for some walleyes, but time and work weather make it tough. Sucks, but that's the reality for me. I still need to winterize and drive the rig to storage, and I prefer a dry day to do that.

Next couple weekends will likely be around town for me, 'tonka is still a very good option, as is the NE Metro. Pheasants may be in the mix too.....

What's the game plan for the rest of you, and any late trips still scheduled? Lets hear the plans.....

My lake doesn't have Muskies and all my boats have been winterized. Likely the only open water fishing time left will be on the river with the Bro targeting Walleyes.

I might keep a 1-2 Muskie combos out in case the opportunity arises. If anyone has an open seat in the east metro let me know.

I plan to fish untill season closes! Hoping to get over to Green Bay too but the weather might influence that decision...

Luckily I have a 3 stall garage, so the boat gets stored at home. It is charging right now and will be seeing a few more days on the water before the season is over. Crazy time of the year with deer hunting and work, but I will still be out there punching away until the very end. Hopefully connecting with a couple of more fall fatties. Alexander has been good for me this fall, just hope the trend continues. smile

I'll be out as long as I can get the boat in the water. Hoping to be out at least till the Sunday before Thanksgiving, might go Thanksgiving day if I can. After that waiting for ice to drill holes in.

I'll be fishing till December 1st or ice, whichever is first. I really only fish for ski's anyways, so no big change. This whole short daylight thing is really laying the pressure on to fish as much as possible, it will be over too soon!

Grouse, pheasants and ducks mixed in as well. Never enough time!

Cjac, where do you store your boat and what is the cost?

I store out by Paynesville, MN.

Couple reasons:

1) Relatively easy for me. The family cabin is just down the road an hour or so, so I get one more late Fall run-through the cabin area to check things out. $150 for the winter and I've never had any issues at all. One phone call in the Spring and it's waiting for me outside the next day, no scheduling like some of the Metro places.

2) I take a fair bit of pride in supporting the ecomony out there versus here in town.

3) I bring the shotgun and hit a couple pheasant areas to make a day of it.

It's been the easiest process every year, no reason to save a buck or two and compromise the peace of mind.

I'll be pounding tonka and waconia for a few more weeks here. I've had a fairly uneventful fall so hopefully things will change. wink

i'll be shore fishing the rest of the year. boats stored till spring and i'll deal with it's issues then. going to be the mississippi river only i think from here on out. might hit the croix but only a couple times if at all. mississippi is real low and that bodes well for me and a few spots i know off shore for 'skis and 'eyes. then in december i'll lock myself away till spring since i don't ice fish.

is purple and yellow a good color combo? i sure hope so, i just did up a WTD to test this weekend wink ... and i'll test my pink/chrome jerkbait.

It is going to be the Mississippi the rest of the way out for me and those mini musky smallmouth.

I am going to put my boat away today and get the dust of my rod building machine. Lots of work to get done.

Still want to hit WBL or Bald Eagle at least one or two more times, Eagle Lake is down the road from my house so there too. Have never had the boat in water in November so it is a mission, reminds me of the blues brothers "were on a mission from god." I have not landed one yet this year either so have that motivation too.

Im going till Nov. 30, assuming it doesn't get terribly cold real fast, the river fishing seems to be only better, hoping to add a couple inches to my personal best. Also would like to fish and get a skie on a metro lake.

    • Check out the 2017 Obsession Hurcan 366fps and 3.9 lbs!
    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
