Excuse the poor quality,heart still pounds when a good one comes in.Hard to hold the Zr85 steady.

Been doing my normal preseason scouting/sitting.

So stoked to go. Ive invited a couple buds to go just so I can extend my season since I didnt get drawn. Have yet to find the wife a Phase with a Blaze. Heading west and south of town this weekend.A client swears he has one coming into his yard early evening. We dont have a tag for the area so it may be a "next year scouting trip"

Ill post pics IF it shows.

The only one that even had a clue what was up was the fat blackie...All are boars and within 15 yds,didn't spook either..

Not sure but once the baiting/infiltration starts they know whats up and get shy.

That looks sweet. I agree that they get a little shy after baiting begins. It has been a while since I have seen one on stand. When I first started some nights I would see multiple bears and now nothing. The bears are still there just smarter than me. Good luck on your scouting.

    • Good idea but I have 1 multiple feeder so that’s where the ground birds are. I tried wiping the post down with the repellent but that stunk too. Might need to do two feeders. 
    • Fishing a mid lake Hump that came up to 45ft. Caught most of the fish between 50-61. We did catch some on the top of the hump in the evening. 
    • How deep were the trout running?  We heard ultra deep on Crow to 30 ft.  The 30 ft number came from people actually catching them.   Thanks for the pics!  I like the fly rod smallie.
    • try the raid spray on grass at bottom. 
    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • 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:
