UPDATE: Muskies for Bowhunting......

Recommended Posts

I finally got to meet french lake kid last night, we went to his dads house to pick him up and meet his dad. We then went to Cabelas to see what we could do about getting his bow set up, ("we" happens to be my 2 daughters and myself, they said he was cute.......) his bow was to long hor him. Nothing we could do about that, so we found him a new bow. Cabelas was really busy so it took a while for them to set it up and get us out the door, but they were nice, and very helpful. The Parker bow he got was perfect draw length and can grow with him. I havent had a Parker but i have heard some pretty good things about them from some friends. I think the kid was pretty happy, but hes really laid back and quiet so, im just hoping he was. It was getting pretty late by the time we were done at cabelas so i took him home. Im just waiting to hear how it shoots and if he got the sights dialed in. I also learned a few other things about the kid, like hes doing drivers training. I think hes a pretty good kid, so i didnt mind getting him a new bow, besides i think i might have a fishing buddy for life. The bow was about the same price as 2 trips with a guide, but i think we will get to fish more than 2 times so it seems like a good deal to me.Well, more updates to come later, hopefully with a musky involved!!! later Todd

I'm starting to see that, I sure hope I can keep up. Luckycrank, hopefully we can all get together for some casting, I look at it this way, at his age there is alot of fire in his belly so if antbody in the future tries to take away my rights to hunt and fish I have a champion with endless energy to fight for all of our rights to do so. Do you bowhunt luckycrank? well anyway if you get a chance see if you can get him out to the 3-D course outside of town, I told him how to get there but im sure you already know. have a good 1 and I'll see you all later........

Thanx guys for the kind words. smile.gif I only shot the bow a few times and it was way faster than any bow I've evere shot B4. Hopefully I'll start getting it ready for fall. I'm headed out to the lake 2moro a.m. and will have the muskie report. If I hook into 1 on accedent. Might have to wait for 1 of those "guided trips" til we get through these forcasted 100+ degree temps. smirk.gif Cant even amagine (spelling confused.gif) what the water temp is going to be in a week or so... frown.gif not good I can tell you that already. blush.gif

Good luck Kid. Hope you tag a big one. As far as the bow, keep shooting and it should pay dividends this fall.

Kid, let me know when you want to go shoot some 3-Ds, i also want to make sure the bow is quiet. A fast arrow is great but not worth beans if the deer hears it comng bcause the bow rattles, some limb savers might be good too.I'll give you a call later about maybe going out fishing 1 mourning this week. later......

Tuesday p.m. fishing a weedline in 5' or so for bass. As it got closer to dark, the skies started rolling, threw out a single colorado, chartruse, Booyah spinner-bait, it was about 10' from the boat and my line went slack, so I reared back and got nothing back but my line mad.giffrown.gif Today a.m. same as night B4. Muskies everywhere. shocked.gif Fishing the edge of a flat with with chatter, a muskie rolled with-in 25 yards and I threw my chatterbait AFAP and once again 10' from the boat my line goes slack, set the hook, this time I hooked it smile.gif but only for a second mad.giffrown.gif Oh well... From Tuesday mid-day to just a few mins ago we boated around 40 bass, and 1 sheepie (on a swim-jig grin.gif)

Hey Kid, I probably wont be able to go fishing this week, I have alot of things going on, but next week is looking better. Besides it might be a little cooler. I am glad to hear the muskys are still snappy. and am glad to hear you did so well with the bass. if you need anything for the bow or want to shoot 3-Ds let me know... Later Todd

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick 
    • Borch
      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....
    • IceHawk
      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
