great fish. I was busting my hump with no results until the lakes started to heat up for me last weekend. Good fishing in other lakes can be good for the busy lakes up there, but for you, I hope it doesn;t get too busy on your lake.

Great catches.

I hope you didn't delete the post due to people criticzing for the verticle hold.

Some people jsut always want to put their 2 cents in, and it is usually negative. We would be here all day if we argued about what is bad for a fish or not.

Keep up the good work and holdem how you want, with care. Some say a fish gets hurt by the battle more than anything. DO we now all have to quit.

Appreciate your response and private message,...fished "another" lake this afternoon and did extremely well. Longest musky to date but not as beefy as you might expect for the length. Expect this pattern might continue awhile yet.

Been fishing up here since 1968 and hard at it several weeks each summer since HS graduation in 81. Something to learn every time out.

Good idea to delete post, anytime someone mentions a specific lake it can get too much pressure in a short time. From the picture a guy could even tell the location on the lake. Don't fish for muskies so do not need to worry about me.

I imagine the people that complain are the people who are never able to catch any fish in the first place. It takes intelligence and fishing experience to identify a Musky pattern, and you sir appear to have the necessary skill. I saw the photos before the delete and anyone who thinks it was 2 pics of the same fish couldn't tell a Musky from a Perch. A fish can be held in the vertical hold without undue stress. It's the fight that stresses the fish. 15 seconds out of the water for a picture and measurments, and the proper revival process means no harm, no foul. Good Job, CopterJohn!

Raptor nice personal attack! So there is a difference between a Muskie and Perch, thanks I did not know.

Don't take comments so seriously. I saw both pics, first fish was covered with blood and sky line was different.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
