Thanks to a combination of hot weather and a busy schedule: this is the latest I've every gone into a season before fish #1. Oh well, just means my average size for the season isn't too shabby.

I too just got my first in the boat this past weekend, but it was a beauty.

A new PB at 51.5". Wish my son would have caught it at 6'5" the fish doesn't look near as big as if he would have got it and he'd have braggin rights for biggest muskie in the family by half inch over the 51" I got last fall.

a 44" tiger is pretty big. If people would try to catch a 44" northern in the metro area i doubt they would go home bragging. it seems a 40"-42" tiger takes about as much time to catch as a 48"-50" pure strain muskie. just my take, but really its not easy to find one like that. i think many people don't realize that. yeah only 44" but wait. Thats a 44" that is half northern pike.

44" tiger is a true trophy, seen some other nice ones from pinkfloyd in the last couple seasons. definitely one to be proud of. lots more people have 50"s to their names than 44" tigers, i'd be really happy with that one.

that's a monster ML fish too, fish of lifetime, nice work, makes me want to go troll, would be nice to hear the story on that one.

4 years ago when i started chasing muskies and really gettin serious i put a cigar in one of my muskie boxes to smoke on my first fish 50+. well 4 years later that cigar was smoked and it didnt taste to bad either.we started the night out by trying to stay away from crowds but with the full moon just a day away and it being on a weekend the east side looked like opening weekend so we went for a long boat ride out to some rocks and thought we would troll around rock piles. first rock pile we got to didnt even get half way around it and bam she hit. could tell she was big right away with the size of the head shakes. got it in the net and she spit the hooks. pulled her out and got the measurments and went to put her back in the water and i could believe how long it took her to swim away.

Thats awesome! The hunted always tend to catch the hunter off guard and bite when you least expect it. my biggest one bit when i wasn't even looking at the water and i sure wasn't ready for it.. i was ready to pack it up that day. Its amazing how nature works.

I bet you want to go back there now and fish the rocks again?

    • Impractable - your on Mille Lacs, sky getting dark, you pick up an AIS signal on your app 14 miles SW of your location heading north in your direction at 72 MPH. Amazed by the boat speed you call your buddy Joe one of two in MN who also has the AIS system & find out he is on 169 in his F150 heading to Leach, just forgot to turn off his chart plotter after bragging about his new $900 AIS with his neighbor before leaving home, you know the guy that has to have every electronic available. All those dozen or so guys in there 14' Lunds cranked up there Scott Attwaters and are heading to shore at the frightening speed of 4 MPH trying to beat the on-coming storm and 4' waves. They really have no desire for those newfangled useless things.

    • One more REPRESENT.  Too hot for the hoody. 😓   The winds got up on Erie too much to make a good run to better water but we still wanted to fish.  We hung around the breakwalls and got sheepies and smallies.  No matter what we caught was going to be C&R for me so a bunch of these were fine.   And a quick shot of the falls.  That water is moving incredibly fast!   Almost done with the loop.  I’m coming back on the Canadian side of the Great Lakes.  There are some really beautiful areas up here.   BTW, the section of NY State from the Allegheny Mountains to Buffalo made me feel at home.  Very similar to areas of MN.  I guess that’s why people like it so much! 
    • Don't get me wrong, I like that idea but I will be able to use a generator all spring, summer and fall for camping.  I go to a lot of campgrounds with no power and tend to run more things then just a TV.  I will just get more use out of it.  Some day I will have a direct vent heater in the house but its not happening this year.  Maybe come tax time in the spring.
    • If it were me, I would buy the furnace and wait on the generator. Who needs tv in a fish house? If you really need to power a tv, i would think you could handle that with one of the cheap little 900 watt generators you can get at harbor freight for a while until you save up more money.   https://www.harborfreight.com/900-max-starting-watt-max-starting-2-cycle-gas-powered-generator-63025.html  
    • I'm planning on insulating it.  When I built the house I never did but after thinking about it for awhile I'm going to now.
    • If your floor is insulated you may get by at 750 watts, but if it's not insulated it won't keep it very warm in the house.
    • So maybe I'd be better off spending a little more for the 3500w generator?  My house is only 6.5 x 12 so I don't have much to heat.  I know there are duel watt heaters (750/1500).  If I can get by on 750w then that would only be about 50% load on a 2000w generator.
