Musky Trip Next Summer

7 posts in this topic

Looking for a few Ideas on where to make a trip for muskies in MN, WI or Canada. Here is the situation myself and some fellow memebers of the UW-fishing Team are wanting to plan a Musky trip for next summmer. There would prolly be around 5 of us, we are looking at a resort that is afforadble but also one that provides oppertunities for trophy fish. This past weekend we had a trip to Green Bay and did decent (34, 40, 44, 45, 48) but most importantly we had a great time. Now we want to plan a summer and fall trip. The fall trip will be to Green Bay agian but the summer trip destination is up in the air.

Thank you in advance for any ideas,

Croix

Hard to beat Lake of the Woods, or Vilas County lakes. That's where I would go.

Croix,

What's your boat situation? That'll help people direct you a bit. Also, as with any trip, the $$$ factor seems to rule. Save what you can and make the best of it.

Boats big enough to handle bigger water? If that's the case LOTW would be a good option. Take a guide the first day to learn the lake and then go from there. I know guys that go to Red Wing Lodge every year and do just that.

A Metro blitz would be kind of fun too, 'tonka, Waconia, Indy, White Bear, Bald Eagle, Forest....a cool way to fish a lot of different waters. Even better if you could find a college buddy with a place to stay in the area.

Another idea would be to hook up with Tim Anderson and work the Brainerd area for a few days. He could get you going on Sham and/or Alex and those lakes could make for a few fun and productive days. You could also make a day and hit some of the less-pressured lakes in the Longville area.

Without a doubt, Lake of the Woods. Give Frank Walsh at Bay Store Camp a call and see if they have openings. Frank and Laura are great folks and they specialize in Musky fishing and groups. They will put you on fish and they are BIG fish.

We have the boats and gear to handle big water, we are thinking of hitting the Big V, LOTW, or somewhere in Wisconsin where we can hit multiple lakes in a week. Prolly leaning towards hitting LOTW, Ill know more after our team metting next week. It also sounds like we might be able to use SOME team money so that should help out.

Those resorts sound awesome, thanks again!

LOTW. I've been going to Red Deer Lodge with the family for over 16 years. Ray and Roxanne are excellent hosts and the fishing is incredible. If you end up going ask Ray for a ride on the Argo. Those things plow through thick canadian forest like a stroll in the park.

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
