Muskie guys meet n greet?

Recommended Posts

So in a thread a few weeks ago I mentioned a GTG on the St. Croix and a few people showed interest.

So, look at your calendars, anybody free over the next 3 weekends in August? We won't be able to please everyone but we'll try and pick a good date.

I was thinking of making a day of it, hoping for cooler/cloudy weather to drive the big boats away. Get out there and fish early and then meet up under the 94 bridge or close around 9-10am and meet/compare notes.

Thoughts?

Ok, i'm leaning towards this saturday, the 15th. Weather looks to be nice so i'll be hitting it EARLY and leaving by 10am or so, can't pay me to stay on that river past that time.

JRedig - where do you launch that you can get on EARLY???

My buddies b-day party is Friday night and if we find a sitter it could be a long night, if not and the crib midgets are with it will be an early night, so I can neither confirm nor deny my participation at this point.

I'd be available Sat. if someone has an open seat. I have my own gear, I just don't know the river or where to start so I'd leave my boat at home.

I've got a pass for the bluffs launch and i'm usually sitting at the gate an hour before it opens. Twice i've gotten in early doing that...heh.

You can go to Windmill or whatever it's called in Afton. They don't open till 6 or something but you can pay when you take out. I've always got there before anybody's working. It's a little steep on the weekends. $20 I think. That's almost more than some tournaments!

Looks like I can't make it on the 15th, but maybe another time this year or next. Good luck out there.

I can do that. Brent, you can jump in with me if you want, I'll be launching in Stillwater but I can meet ya under the bridge whenever. Most of my spots are down that way anyhow.

J, if it falls through I'd stop and say hi out on white bear too.

Meet N Greet... on the water of off the water, doesn't matter to me. smile I'm busy this weekend or I'd try and hop in someone's boat. Maybe getting out of Cjac's boat will be the ticket to success. grin Sorry buddy, had to go there. wink I'm always game for a [PoorWordUsage] session at perennial fave, Decoy's in WBL as well.

Ok, ran into some boat problems last night, not sure if I can make this work. It's just trolling motor battery issues, but between two dead batteries and a dead onboard charger, it's a steep price to fix. I'll know more after a cabela's run for lunch today...

EDIT: Skip cabela's, found a steal of a price for a new onboard charger from dual pro in their reconditioned items, so hopefully they'll ship it fast enough that I can use it...so maybe this will still happen!

I've been doing quite well at catching fish every time you're NOT in my boat, so you being unavailable may be a good thing!

<----- Like the new pic of the pup!

    • You will probably need that many to make sure you have one that works ūüėĀ. The last grill I bought was a top of the line charbroil with the side burner yadda yadda. Nearly $600.¬† Lasted barely two years with half the burners no longer working right and finally the grates were a rusted mess and it was replaced by a pellet grill.¬†
    • It's the same form whether the boat is titled or just registered. How long is the boat? 16' or longer or if there was a loan on it when new it would be titled. The form is just the starting point, since Homeland Security took an interest in boat ownership transfers several years ago it is not an easy process.
    • I have had great luck w/ my 3 yr old Big Horn. I have always said that the controller and hopper looked a lot like the Pit Boss ¬† ¬† ¬† yeah... I'd say you've got options!
    • Actually I got a new 4 burner Char Grill with side burner this spring for up at the camper and a new cheaper 2 burner with side burner a week ago for at home, so alone with the new Char Grill¬†smoker I got last year I have plenty of wienee¬†cookers thanks.¬†¬†ūüėė¬†¬†
    • what type of lenses? glass?
    • About 10 years ago I bought a boat that I had to track down a person that was not who I bought the boat from as they owned it many years before that!!!¬† But I am sure that I got the owners name from the DMV to then track down and had her sign a form, brought back to DMV, and then put into my name.¬† I am guessing things have changed as to how to get the name, but sounds silly to have to write a letter to get information that they¬†could use proper discretion to give it to you or not.¬† Good Luck!
    • Traegers are super over-rated and over-priced for what they are. I would rather buy that big horn up above than a Traeger.¬† ¬† I'm fairly certain that Big Horn is just a Pit Boss. Louisiana smokers makes Pit Boss and a bunch of other stuff that other's put their own name on including PF's Cabela's model. I have a small Pit Boss that I am going to use for camping and I like it just fine. I bought that one from a friend for $50 but I'm sure that's still too much for Leech......
    • ok so story time...the one that got away but saw the fish.¬† I was ice fishing on Red when the eye fishing was still closed and we went out for an early season excursion about a mile out of Westwind.¬† It was Saturday evening when I my bobber shot down and the fight was on.¬† Now we were only in probably 5-7 ft of water if that but I "tired" the fish out where I was able to get it directly under the hole and all we could see was a monster northern head filling up the hole!!¬† No one would put there hand near that thing, let alone blindly through 2.5 ft of ice, so we just watched it for a minute or two float beneath the hole until I tried to turn it up the hole and the line just snapped when he decided he had had enough!!¬† That was painful not to touch but seeing it and knowing it was all of 44"+ was better than wondering. ¬† Now to the not seen...Ice fishing Waukanabo by Leech in the deep hole on the north end and I see a mark on the bottom and I hook into it and could not budge it off the bottom.¬† I sat there for a few¬†minutes with rod bent over trying to lift it with nothing but my line slowly moving away until pop it spit my lure!!!¬† I think the hole is over 40' deep and with 4lb test mono I guess as much as I applied pressure the hook wasn't in!!¬† ¬† What could have been~ so those are two stories that stick out in my mind and of the 2 the¬†second stings more as I have no clue what it could have been and that¬†runs through my mind but the northern as¬†cool¬†as it would have been to touch measure and what not, to see it and to know¬†how massive it was, makes it¬†"easier" to¬†deal with.¬†
