Gonna try to get my father-in-law hooked up with a bi Musky on Forest Lake Friday. They live on Bald Eagle so I guess it makes a lot of sense to take him somewhere else to fish!! confused I'm also planning on spending the rest of the time playing outside with the kids and taking them swimming somewhere.

Have a safe weekend everyone!

I am hanging around here this weekend, probably go fishing on some of the local lakes. My buddy Ken took me through the woods again to a backwater lake, trudged through muck to get his little 12 foot boat in the lake and fished for sunnies. It is always quite an adventure when I go with him, but they sure tasted good for dinner. I have to invest in some waders if I want to keep fishing with him! I will admit it is kinda neat fishing on a lake with absolutely no one else around.

LGFWS was going to do the parade in Nashwauk, but decided against it. I will probably be at the one in Deer River next weekend at the Wild Rice Days.

I went fishing at lake X last night and got skunked, well not skunked if you count the two little hammer handles I caught. My dear friend told me the locals have been hitting it pretty hard. His son and about 30 other people were there camping and his 2 grandsons were out fishing by me. I gave them some leeches and trolled down the shoreline, pretty soon they came racing over to me to show me the 20" walleye they caught on the leeches I gave them. At least they caught a fish, when I was loading up their dad told me they had been out there fishing all day and hadn't caught anything. I guess I helped "make their day"

Did not get much fishing in this weekend, too many people on the dock, swimming or using the boat for water fun. We did get into a bunch of nice sunnies for a little while on Sunday. The sunnies will be the first fresh water fish that my sister in laws mother will ever taste. She is from the Philippines and has been wanting to try the local fish.

Hope

Tried for a couple hours yesterday myself... but yeah.. Lots of boats flying around pulling tubes, kids swimming... Too much traffic to do much of anything but try keeping the boat upright from the waves of the recreational boaters. eekeek

Oh well.. still have some leeches left for next weekend, even after I gave some away. Sounds like I fish like ULT, don't it?? laughlaugh Hope someone else had a little better luck.

    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
