I propose the first of maybe several get togethers for the muskie crowd here. I'd love to spend an afternoon talking about these "stupid" fish with some other crazies like me over a few brewskies. Maybe do a few of these this winter, see how idea's and reflections change with time.

So, would Sunday Decemeber 21st work for anyone? Say 1pm till ____ at Decoy's in WBL. Chime in if you can make it or with a different date.

It would best to get a possible head count ahead of time to let them know.

We could also do a mini lure swap each time as well, I know I have stuff I could get rid of.

Jeff, you have a serious musky hangover.

Hopefully I'll be jerking some walleyes on the river that day but if not I might stop in. It would be nice to meet a few of you guys around the WBL area.

I'll be at the relatives that weekend. Sounds like a good idea though. I got some lures that I'm sure could find a better home. Something about owning 600 lures and only being able to use 1 at a time.......and maybe 3-4 in a day, lol.

Yes sir, that was me. Was that friday or saturday? Which ever, it was a fun day! Never thought I'd use my boat as an ice auger to open up a casting hole quite like that. I ended up finding a couple fish up shallow on the inside edge that day, but they wouldn't eat. Ended up finally finding some bait balls off the break too, but no bigger fish that wanted to show for me.

I'd think all that noise would spook them off, but I saw a couple guys fishing suckers boat two fish right by some other guys doing laps of their fishing hole.

yeah, we trolled by ya, as u were casting that edge, all kinds of bait off that edge, i really thought that ice would dissapear later that day, have seen it before, where at about noon, it magically disappears and you can start fishing,not that day, that was last Sat.

I think I can make it....

Being unfirmilliar with the cities, how do you get there from 694?

Take 35E north.

Exit on HWY 96, go east.

When you hit HWY 61, go north.

It'll be on your left side 3-4 stoplights up after on hwy 61.

Slow rollin', we'll do this again this winter/spring a few times, maybe next time!

    • 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!!!!
