Next seasons trips???????

Recommended Posts

With the winter blues upon us, has anyone started planning their trips for next season yet? Never too early to start thinking and making reservations at your favorite resort, as most of the good ones fill up FAST!!!!

I will be spending two weeks up on LOTW, one week at the end of June and one week during early August. Can't wait!!!!

Plans are in the works to hit Illinois and maybe Ten this spring to get in shape!

Plus want to make some weekend trips to Leech and Vermillion. Haven't fished Leech in almost 10 years and I hear her callng to me!!! smile

If you are up fishing the central MN lakes, holler at me. Don't live more than 40 minutes from any of them and we should chuck some plugs

I'll do my usual muskie outings- 5 days on LOW in mid July on a Father/Son Trip, and four days in mid Aug with the big kids. I'll also hit the central and East central lakes a little more next year- no elk hunting trip to eat up my time in the Fall, so I'll be able to fish more. I hope to do a Plantan, Cass, Leech type trip at some point next year.

I think we'll hit the Big Chip next year for sure. Looking for a trip somewhere in northern MN, not sure exactly where. Be nice to get a big pike trip in too, Wisconsin really doesn't have much to offer as far as that's concerned.

Hey, same here. Make it known when you're going out so I can follow you guys around the lake, haha.

Also, most of my trips next year will be around the central MN area. I call them trips because I usually stick to the Miss. Would love to get out on Sham and Alex and a little lake near Aitkin as well.

It will be the Lower Manitou in Canada for me. Mid-late June, all the Lakers you can handle in the morning and then when are arms are tired we will go and search for Muskies. Not the easiest lakes for Muskies but the ones that we saw were huge and with 30ft visability, you can see them comming from a long ways a way!

Musky18,

I will gladly trade a day on Leech for a day on Alex! We should look into stting something up the first week or so in September.

FOR SURE!!!! Like I said, I haven't been on Leech in quite a few years and would love to get back into the "know" up there. Would gladly take you around for a day on Alex.

Sept would be prime!

Bronze....you can follow me around the lake anytime you want, or jump in the boat with us. I am pretty sure I know a one armed bandit that would come out with us as well!

Can anyone give me information about the chain of lakes east of Ely near BWCAW entry point #31 (N. Kawashiwi River)? Looking to give them a try around opener but have never fished the area before.

    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
    • You got it, Borch!  I was disappointed with how the season ended, but you're definitely right!  I also learned a trick this year- cards!  Morgan really enjoyed playing cards with me in the blind.  It was a good way to pass the time and we enjoyed it quite a bit.  We had a great season together and enjoyed it a ton!     That last encounter we had was really something!  I'm convinced the worst thing birds can do to a bowhunter is to come in to the deeks is stand there and stare.  I'd rather they hung up and didn't come in or did pretty much anything but that.  It makes it virtually impossible to get a bow drawn!  The turkey was at about 5 yards, because I knew we I needed one close for Morgan.  However, at five yards and staring directly in the direction of the blind, she was smart to not try to draw.  That dang bird stood there for two full minutes and didn't move a muscle.  Morgan had a smile from ear to ear and at one point told me "I was so excited and my heart was pounding so hard I thought I might die!"     It would have been a slam dunk with her crossbow, but she wanted to get one with a vertical bow.  I'm proud of her for sticking with it and she said "I'm just fine with not shooting one, Dad."  I'm glad she's ok with that.  I wish I was more ok with it...  but, that's hunting!  
    • Sounds like he is going to bring "fire" to the team haha.  Hoping he can come up with something to do with all the aging players who aren't living up to their contracts.     Also heard that Coyle played the last 2 months with torn ligaments in his wrists.  Going in for surgery.  Kind of an eye opener really, Coyle with torn wrist ligaments is better than anything they could've moved up that is healthy?  Uh oh....
    • Hey, it's all good. Morgan and you spending time together in the outdoors and getting a close encounter is what it's all about.     Sometimes the birds win and we simply run out of time.
