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.

      Thanks for the update , Don.  Some of the smaller bodies of water in our area capped over last night. I'm hoping there will be walkable ice somewhere by the weekend

      The deadline for firearms wild turkey hunters to apply for early season spring hunting permits is Friday, Jan. 27, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The spring season, which runs from Wednesday, April 12, to Wednesday, May 31, is divided into six time periods. Only people age 18 and older who want to hunt using a firearm during the first two time periods (A or B) need to apply for a spring turkey permit. Permits for the remaining time periods (C-F) can be purchased over-the-counter. Archery and youth turkey hunters can hunt the entire season without applying for the lottery. Permits for the last three time periods and youth licenses are sold starting March 1. Surplus adult licenses from the first two time periods, if available, are sold starting around mid-March. People applying for permit area 511, the Carlos Avery State Wildlife Management Area, are advised that the sanctuary portion of the WMA will be closed to turkey hunting except for the special hunt for hunters with disabilities. For turkey hunting, a person may only use shotguns 20 gauge or larger, including muzzleloading shotguns. Only fine shot size No. 4 and smaller diameter may be used, and red dot scopes and range finders are legal. Visit the turkey hunting page  for more information about turkey hunting.

      We did some roadside scouting in the Chippewa national forest on Sunday. Put on a pile of miles driving the forest roads with the fresh dusting of snow and never cut a track. Kinda disappointing, but my daughter wasn't really up for it.    Season is still young.

      well we found a small amount of ice. But it was only about 1"thick. And only reached out a couple hundred yards at best. The swans were loving all the open water that's for sure.    Those that did come up to the GTG had a good time despite the lack of ice. Mostly hunting for grouse and rabbits. Plenty of both seen, but the shooting was less than stellar.
