Hiten the mighty croix this weak ! About time.

Recommended Posts

Ive been out of service for 3 weaks do to a seperated shoulder.

Now that I can put deoderant on with out almost passing out its time to hit the water. From the way it sounds the bite has slowed down and bcame a little more challanging.

I still cant lift a case of pop with my right shoulder but I canst stand no more I gotta get on the water. My poor boat sitten there with a veiw of the water just gotta be killing it. I know when I go out to the back yard the fist thing I see is the boat then the river then the boat. Water here I come but it will have to wait till later in the weak. I got to replace the rearwindow of my truck first. I can feel the water flowing under the boat now. At least I'm able to walk down to the river and taste it.

I agree with any shoulder injury or surgery it's painful! I had surgery on my labrum in my right shoulder on april 25th,2008 and after the week of pain meds and the constant puking feeling I was on the water catching fish like crazy! I have hurt my shoulder a few times already by setting the hook too hard or in the wrong direction. lots of ice after you work the shoulder and you'll be fine in no time! good luck on the river!

    • 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:
    • 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! 🙂
