Its time to WEAGLE!!!

22 posts in this topic

Yepper... FINALLY got the 2008 monkey off my danged back... Hit Bald Eagle at about 3pm with Huey...

Hit the island... several boats there... told Huey I'd like to come back to the island and try topwaters...

but we decided to hit a secondary spot... come to think of it... I originally thought to leave my Weagle home...

then decided to bring it anyways... turns out at about 4pm, the conditions was PERFECT for topwaters...

calm lake... none to little wind... sun was low... turns out the moon was rising at the same time...

snapped on the Cash Weagle... 20-25 mins later... she hit... nice swirl and nice fight...

Huey did an excellent job netting her... Thanks, Huey, for a beautiful afternoon!!!

My first topwater fish... and my new personal best... a 44"...

Reb-

Congrats on your 44! laugh It was great to see you catch it.

You picked a location and presentation that I didn't really consider. It was cool to see that pattern succeed. It taught me something new about fall fishing. Thanks.

Huey

Huey- partial credit also goes to gut feeling!!! Like I said, everything was perfect... and frequenting this forum to pick on the minds of the experienced guys helps... along with faithfully getting Musky Hunter magazine helps too...

I do remember someone (I think it was Mike Hulbert)talking about topwaters... and he would mention several times about how topwaters can be deadly at any times as long you recognize the conditions and things should just fall into place... and that secondary spot... just looked sweet on the map... thus, taking RK's advice... if that spot looks good to you, HIT it... along with CJAC's frequent mentioning of secondary spots... theres a good reason why CJAC has more muskies under his belt compared to me laugh

Was hoping for you to catch one too... but some other times... its your turn... thanks again!!!

She's a beaut Reb. Great color and markings on her. Isn't that just the greatest feeling in the world? Didn't think I was going to get the monkey off my back at all this year, toughest year of fishing in a LONG time. This fall has been great though.

Hiya -

Woo! Congrats. Very Cool. Beautiful fish too - wow. Those spots are something.

Great that you got it on a topwater besides. That's about as fun as it gets. Too many guys put the toppies away when the water gets cold.

Now go get another one smile

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

Bret... Oh yeah... the sweetest feeling!!! We'll see how the fall season goes when Im gonna go out this weekend... French on Saturday and one of the Metro Lakes on Sunday... see how it goes...

Hanson- Thanks... Lets keep the streak alive...

Luke... thanks!!! This seems to be the year of Weagles... last year it was the year of the Cowgirls... Whats next year???

JRedig... I know too bad it wasnt on pink... Everytime Luke had pink weagle... it was already sold before I could inquire Luke about it... just my luck... LOL... Maybe in 2009...

Hunter... Im definitely looking forward to that for 2009... Rmemeber... I still have those two books I borrowed from your dad...

RK...Hopefully I'll catch some more this weekend... after all... Im at a point where its easier to break my personal best... LOL... Just need more time on the water!!!

Reb, it sure took you long enough, but I say better to catch 'em at the end than at the beginning. On second thought, better to catch 'em all the way through. Very happy for you, I know you've had a tough year with the boat being out of commision. Only bad part about it is I was kind of looking forward to you shaving your head bald (if you didn't get one this year). I'd do it anyway, I think you'll catch more smile

Thanks Box, Rinc, and Boy46... Im glad too! laugh

Keith... You know how bad my luck was this year... even we got skunked on French... Still feel bad about that... and still want to hit French w/ u and Hunter again and kick her butt next time around... I know... you're not the only one hoping I'd go zero this year and go bald... Notice that I didnt even do my hair the way I usually do... maybe thats the thing... *shrugs*

Luke Breyer... care to elaborate on Propster's theory... whether going bald helps with more catches??? whistle

It certainly hasn't helped me this year.

Spending 6 weeks in CA and not fishing may have something to do with that also

Larry -

Nice work. I got your text a bit late - my phone died cause I took a header into the slop with the cell phone while duck hunting.

That's a pretty fish. I was shooting ducks out there yesterday and kept telling my brother I should have been hurling a bait in between the decoys.

take care - erik

    • My wife and I like to float down the Crow from Rockford to the Mississippi. Hardly anyone on the river except Bald Eagles. Found some nice chicken of the woods mushrooms last summer.
    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
