Do you know what the topic of the seminar is? Or is that decided at the last minute by Gregg? I might possibly attend. Thanks for the heads up.

Hanson, I think the topic is "Blueprints of Musky Success."

If I find out otherwise I'll be sure and post. Hope you can make it.

I think Greg is a special guide, he seems so grounded and he speaks more to the truth than most. Seems like his blueprint to success runs true. Fish good water at whatever time of the day the pattern is showing. smile M.B.

Thanks 50inch. I saw that was the title, but was just curious if you knew anything more specific about the discussion. "Blueprints of Musky Success" could include a discussion of a lot of different things, should be interesting anyway.

Yeah, did ya like my 2nd post there? Ha - I figured you could read as well as the next guy, I just wasn't sure what to say.

I have not attended any of his clinics or fished with him before so I'm not sure about the methodology, but like Buck said, he seems like a pretty straight shooter and whatever he's doing seems to be working.

Hopefully someone who's seen him speak before will weigh in.

I've seen gregg talk a few times and spent some time talking 1 on 1 with him. Very straight shooter, imo. Very excited and serious about muskies. I don't think he inflates anything, if it's worked for him, he'll tell you so it can hopefully work for you.

I think you guys will see me there, someone bump this thread closer to the date or i'll never remember...

Just a reminder guys - lots of fun musky stuff to do during the winter between the St. Cloud, Chapter 54, the Metro chapters of MI, and the FM chapter.

Anyone checking out Road Rules this weekend? Remember, women are free, DeBo.

I have fished with Gregg a couple times and have attended his musky road rules seminar and on the water workshop. I think he is very down to earth, knowledgeable, and willing to help other people with fishing.

Just a reminder - it's on tonight, if any FMers make it make sure you come up and introduce yourself after the seminar.

It was a good time, Gregg gave away a full day trip and talked about short line trolling, eels and tubes, and a couple other things. I was impressed by his genuine concern and enthusiasm for the resource here in MN and his support was much appreciated by St. Cloud MI.

    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
    • Still have my old sno-boat. Best portable shelter out there for pulling by hand. You scored a heck of a deal! I feel mine is irreplaceable! I don't use it much, but when I do, I'm so glad I have taken care of it and still have it 16 years later. I've had 1 zipper replaced on the D-door and some patching done at Canvas Craft years ago.  I think the other zipper is on it's way out, and will definitely get that repaired when needed. 
    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
    • tip to a couple good friends   Len,
      Thank you for the stream recommendation, Len! I love the layout of this stream. Fished it from 3pm until 6:30pm.  My brother threw panther 9s and I threw 6s. We scored a brookie/brown/bow trifecta.    
    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
