Fishing Book

9 posts in this topic

About 15-20 years ago I bought a book at a garage sale with stories of record fish from Minnesota. It was a soft cover book that had a blue cover and has stories about various species of fish. I can't seem to find this book and would like to get another copy of it. Does anyone know what the name of it is? I have been having a heck of a time finding it without knowing the name.

It could be a Joe Fellegy book.

I believe you are describing "Classic Minnesota Fishing Stories" by Joe Fellagy. I have that book at home. I could take a picture of it when I go home in 3 weeks...it's just like you describe...blue soft cover, a hand drawing of a guy holding a huge Esox....Great read....I particularly enjoyed the story about the Musky Rampage on Leech.

That sounds like what it was. Thanks for the help. I have read that thing cover to cover many times. I have to agree, the stories about muskies on Leech are very good. Thanks for the help.

This is a great book! In fact, I just pulled it off the shelf earlier this week and was reading it.

The muskie rampage story and pictures are amazing. Could you image the comments people would make if we took pictures like the wheelbarrow or stringer ones now? It would cause an uproar!

      I know this is an Ice Fishing thread, but I can't seem to find much information on ice condition on the lake or how the snow looks out there and on the trails. I live down in the Duluth area and was thinking about coming snowmobiling up there this next weekend. Seems the whole states in a stupid heat wave. But you guys had more snow than us before, was wondering if there's still enough to snowmobile.

      LOTS of traffic on the Hole In The Day access over the weekend.  It degraded noticeably from Saturday to Sunday.   There are two paths heading out.  The one going straight ahead has a bit of a ridge at shore that longer houses/low clearance vehicles might have a little trouble with.  The one to the right is angled and doesn't have the ridge but developed a hole at shore Saturday night.   I'm hoping it doesn't get any worse but probably will before the weekend.  We were planning on being out overnight before the contest but plans seem to be changing.  Especially since it was reported that a vehicle went through by Hunters Point over the weekend.  Hunters Point is on the Southwest side of the lake but makes my wife leary of taking out truck and house back out even on the Northeast end where the contest is.   Sorry for the bad news.  I'm still crossing my fingers and will check the access again this week.

      Very nice fish! Thanks for the heads up on the ice cleats. Do you know how the access is holding up with this warm weather ?
