more muskie pics

10 posts in this topic

Here are a couple pics from today. We went out today just hoping to see a muskie and get some pics. I didn't even bring the spear with. Wow! What a fun couple of hours. It was pretty much non stop action, ended up seeing three muskies and about five or six different northerns. I have a bunch of video, I will post them eventually too. What a way to end a great season.

the decoy is 15" long

In this pic he is about to hit the decoy(11" tulibee) After he hit, I had to pull it up and straighten the fins. It has some pretty nasty tooth marks too.

That is really cool, Do muskies school up in the winter??

My guess is that they are getting ready for spring

Very cool.

It's amazing how far that decoy glides.

I took MuskieFool out today. We saw 6 or 7 muskies and only 2 pike. My camera isn't working. MuskieFool got some pics. Maybe he'll post them.

How big are thinking those ski's were?

The one with the white lip, I was thinking about 43-44", the other two were a little smaller, maybe 39-40".

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
