Heading up for the muskie opener this weekend. All the gear and clothes are accounted for, just the food to get now and try to sleep at night.  Looking forward to my first visit there and my first honest effort for muskies.  Oh, I’ve caught some in the past while bass fishing but going toe to toe with an intentionally caught monster with the proper gear will be all together different.

 

Anyone else going to try their hand?  We’ll be fishing till Wednesday.  I hope to have a couple decent pics to post next week.

Good luck Wanderer!

 

I've been up to Crow a few times to fish lakers through the ice.

Always thought a summer trip up there to chase smallies, lakers, and muskie's would be fun during open water.

 

I'm looking forward to the pics.

Thanks Duffman.

 

I’m at the all packed up/can’t sleep stage now.  Tomorrow at work will be tough to keep any focus.  I’m lovin it.

 

Once we hit the border my electronic leash is going off.  Hopefully for the whole trip.  Hope to have some pics to share for sure.

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:

Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️

I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
    • Yes, I noticed the bottled water in the back👺
    • I did 2 racks of St. Louis style ribs on the pellet smoker yesterday, rubbed with smoky mesquite seasonings...  so good no bbq sauce was used when they were eaten!!!  did the 3-2-1 method but used different temps from the last time I did them...  started at 175 for 3 hrs, then 230 wrapped and finished unwrapped at 230...  Oh Yea!!!
