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!

      The Bay is so different from the Lake.  The heavy breeze is keeping the lake open.  Things calm down Fri to Sun that will most likely freeze the lake over.  Then we get strong winds again on Mon to Wed that could likely blow it open again.  You may be able to fish the bay, but I am doubting the lake.  JMHO.  I can wait, but I am getting the itch.

      I have a 2015 21' Ice Castle RV that has two house batteries. I added the second to the house. It will run the furnace fan all night but it is running a lot slower by morning. There is a noticeable increase in fan speed when I start the generator in the morning. I am thinking of adding a third battery to the house to make up the difference.

      Any area ice reports? I'm hearing that most of the smaller bodies of water in the area have now frozen over. Should make it out sometime this weekend to try my luck . Good luck, and please stay safe
