What do you mean by "brought home almost 4 limits between the two of us"? That doesn't sound legal to me.

That thought crossed my mind also... Maybe they limited out for 2 people for two days = 4 limits???

My guess is that he got 2 limits on day one, they ate the fish, and he got 2 more limits on day two, making a very successful 4-limit weekend for the two guys.

That's a lot of cat to eat in one day, just sounded fishy (no pun intended) to me that's all. I knew he meant two limits one day and two the next, but it just didn't sound right.

Sorry I shared.

#1 17 fish over 2 days

#2 Fed 7 people 1st day, froze the 7 caught 2nd day

#3 Have 3 people in my home who can legaly take fish so 7 in my freezer is fine.

#4 With my position in the community and other organizations I am about the most law abiding citizen you will find.

Just because 2 gouys caught the fish does not mean they were the only 2 who ate them

LFC and aandrud thank you for giving me the benifit of the doubt and you are correct it was over the 2 days, and I feel it was a great weekend for a guy who just had hernia surgery.

Brownie, I don’t think anyone was saying that you broke any laws. In your original post you stated “brought home 4 limits between 2 people”.

It was just a matter of grammatical interpretation.

Sounds like you guys had a lot of fun, and that is what it should be about, I bet those channels were tasty.

Get that hernia healed up and please feel free to share your stories in the future.

Yes i know i over reaceted a little, but I thougth I was clear enough by putting the weekend. I should have stated over 2 days of fishing. As for stories, not mush to share when you only have channel cats to pursue.

Alot of people will put a limit of fish in their freezer one day and put another limit in the freezer the next and not even realize they are breaking the law, and while I said it didn't SOUND legal, I didn't intead to imply that you had broken any laws, I merely asked for clarification.

    • 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:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
