I heard that they had a tournament and caught only two fish for the hole tournament, wondering if thats correct.

It was six days of tough fishing for about 70 anglers who competed in the 46th annual Muskie-Northern Derby Days on Leech Lake July 28-Aug. 2.

Only seven muskies were caught this year, down considerable from 2006. Last year, 19 muskies were registered and released as anglers took advantage of ideal fishing conditions.

Vince Noeller of Laporte, who has been fishing the tournament for several years, finally claimed his first title. Noeller, who took fourth in 2006, caught two muskies. They measured 49 and 47 inches, and were caught Aug. 1 in .

      How's the snow on the lake?  Can you still get around on snowmobile or is the slush getting bad?  Thanks for any info.

      I don't have an axe to grind with The Landing (and I don't honk anyone on this forum does either)- I went there a few times last summer and the food was good, they had an ample beer selection, and the service was friendly- all of those things I'm willing to pay for.   We had another couple up staying the weekend at our cabin and brought them to The Landing and had a terrific time, looking forward to making it back there again!   And more importantly, can't wait for the ice to get off the lake!!
