Next seasons trips???????

14 posts in this topic

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.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
