    Replica Advice

    I'd second Fittante's work. I had posted several pictures last year of my 52" at this link http://www.hotspotoutdoors.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/2332710/1 or search for "walleyepro" and click on the musky art in home thread. included picture of the original fish and also a friend's fish when we were picking up our replicas from the musky expo

    Private Boat Sale - Sales Tax

    I'm looking to purchase a boat through a private sale in South Dakota and register for use in MN. Do I need to pay tax on the boat? My past experience has been that I only need to pay tax on the trailer when I transfer the title and pay registration on the boat. However, I have not bought a boat out of state. Thanks

    Musky Art in home?

    This one didnt post the first time... I love the detail of the mouth/teeth/gills. Amazing attention to the details!

    Musky Art in home?

    Here are a couple others that show the fish and then a buddy of mine was also picking up a fish at the Muskie Expo - his is a 43in northern.

    Musky Art in home?

    Here's a replica of my 52" metro fish from two years ago. The markings aren't exact but I haven't seen one yet that is. I feel like he did a great job! What do you guys think?
  6. I was at the expo and picked up a Revo 60 and a Compre rod. Haven't yet decided what length rod I should get. and whether or not to go heavy or extra heavy. I have a extra heavy 8' compre with a saltist 30 for running big blades fast I'm looking for a good all around rod for throwing different types of baits. I really like the 8' but feel that a 7'2" or a 7'6" might be better. I was thinking extra heavy. What are your thoughts? I have two other 7' fig rig rods that I don't really care for, they are medium heavy, each with a cheaper abu.

    All around rod - what length?

    butter - you muskie fish from a canoe? standing up? You must have really good balance. I think if I tried that i'd end up in the drink on my first cast!

    All around rod - what length?

    I have a 8' XH Compre with a Saltist 30 that i use for big blades and plastics. I currently don't throw any pounders or bigger plastics, catch plenty of fish on the normal size bulldawg, and the smaller bulldawg sees a lot of fish too. I appreciate your help. When i pick it up at TB i'll ask the guys there too what they recommend. maybe i just need to change by retrieve with jerk baits, suicks, etc to bring the rod in more to the side vs. down towards the water. That's why i was going to go with the 7'6" over the 8'. I'll be fishing out of a lower profile yar-craft (1785 mille lacs) so i should be ok with a 7'6" on eights. I just bought it this winter and had it in the water over the weekend, i was surprised at how low it say in the water. Thanks

    All around rod - what length?

    Why do you suggest at least 8 foot rods? Two years ago an 8 foot rod as "long" and now its on the short side??? Some lures are getting bigger and heavier, but I still fish "small" 8 and 9 inch baits with a lot of success. I think I'm going to go with the 7'6" XH Compre.

    Inflatable Fish

    Thanks for the responses guys. Pro-V my email address is ryan (dot) c (dot) schuh (at) gmail (dot) com The back story is that my wife's family does not fish for muskies and they don't believe that I have the ability to catch 50"+ fish, even with the pictures. Her uncle has this running joke where he fakes that he is "blowing" up the muskie and then posing for a picture. So I was going to try and find a blow up/inflatable muskie to play a prank on him.

    Inflatable Fish

    Not sure what the best spot is to post this, but I need to find an inflatable or blow-up muskie, like a toy for a gag gift. The bigger the better. Anyone know where to find one or ever seen one? I've searched the web and can't find anything. Thanks for any help.
  12. Does anyone know how to transfer waypoints from a H20 to a Humminbird 595C GPS Combo? I can "save" data on the H20 to a SD card, but I can't "load" them to the HB. Can you load waypoints onto this model? It has a SD slot. The Navionics Hotmaps work. This is the first HB unit I've owned, I've always used Lowrance units.

    Private Boat Sale - Sales Tax

    Airjer- Where is the DNR's main office? Do they have an office in the Cities? I also had a problem last time when dealing with the DMV. They tried to get me to register the trailer for a larger capacity than it was so that I would have had to get tabs for it each year.
  15. In-laws new cabin is on a very deep (110ft), very clear lake & cold, with very sparse weeds in norther MN with a good walleye population. I can find the walleyes in less than 30 feet and get them to bite in the spring through the end of July and again in the late fall on jigs/lindys/crankbaits without too much of a problem. In the Summer the problem is that I can't find them half the time and when i do find them only little ones bite. How deep do they go and how can i catch them. I'll be up again over Labor Day. Are they suspended over 50-100 feet or where do they go? The lake gets a lot of local pressure in the spring and then no one fishes it the rest of the year. Where can i find them? i dont have experience fishing this kind of lake.

    Walleyes - DEEP CLEAR Lake in September

    i have a 16ft old aluminum boat. would down riggers work on my boat?

    Walleyes - DEEP CLEAR Lake in September

    In spring and fall night fishing is the way to go, but now i can't even find them at night. I'm talking 9pm - 3am. How deep is deep when you're talking lead core? Would a 3-way with a big 2-3 oz drop work as well to get down deep? I've tried looking for fish in the 30-60 range and dont really mark much.

    Holcombe Flowage

    we have a cabin on the holcombe. my dad bought it a few years ago. make it to the cabin about every other weekend in the summer. walleyes are usually pretty consistent action, but nothing big. i think our biggest is 26". most are 11-16". for muskies target the mouths of creek inlets and rivers. we'll be up this weekend for the opener, green lund fisherman with a 150 merc, MN license. feel free to say hi i'd be interested to hear what you guys catch your eyes on. i hear a lot of folks pulling cranks shallow in spring. we tend to do well will lindy rigs and jig/minnow combos.
  20. I was just reading a post in the open water forum and someone said that since minnetonka is a muskie designated lake that bowfishing is illegal. I've bowfished on tonka for years, and as a result of many lake homeowners not knowing why some guy had a bow off their dock, had the pleasure of talking to a few COs along the way too. Never had one tell me i can't shoot carp on tonka. Anyone know for sure?

    Sunglasses?

    I wear prescription glasses and would like to find a pair of polarized glasses to put over my glasses. So far i've just used cheapos. Any recommendations? the other option i guess would be to get a good pair of sunglasses w/ my prescription - might be the way to go.

    Can you bowfish for carp in Lake Minnetonka?

    What city is the Big Island canal in?

    Can you bowfish for carp in Lake Minnetonka?

    I meant from a boat near docks and other shallow areas. I've always been under the impression that the lake was not in a "city". Is anyone aware of a Lake Minnetonka map that has city lines drawn through it? I want to make sure I look up the ordinances before heading out to the west end of the lake on May 1st.
