I love this one cos' she really kicked my butt that day! (Which was the case on many occasions.) Unfortunately she has lost interest. Even to this day if I find myself in a rut I'll try & coax her to go fish with me. Seems like she always did well.

Here is my son Aaron with his grandfather as a five year old in 1997, and (inset) as a 15 year old muskie hunter! He also shoots bigger deer than his dad...ugh. CopterJohn

My youngest is 11. Here's Nathan with a nice pike near Detroit Lakes. He has been using baitcaster since he was three. He shot his first rooster last weekend.

And now we flash back to 1981... Copter John with a 8.3 largemouth.

Caught from a vintage Bass Tracker boat and a fat rap. Remember it like yesterday. John-1.jpg

absolute tank.

I have a picture of me from fishing opener when i was probably about 5 or 6. I'm holding up a 15-20 pound pike that my dad caught that day that was as tall as I was. I'll see if I can find it.

What a HAWG!!!!! Killer hat as well. It seems that all of my older hats (circa late 80's) seem to be creased in the middle of the bill. Sign of the times?

    • I’m in a similar situation right now and I am “freaking out” how did it work out for you what paper work did you file? Who did you reach out to?
    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
