RIDING STABLES OPEN OFF SEASON

12 posts in this topic

HELLO,

MY WIFE AND I ARE DRIVING UP THIS WEEKEND TO STAY AT STONY POINT FOR TWO WEEKS SO SHE CAN OUTFISH ME AGAIN. I AM THE MUSKY HUNTER AND UNFORTUNATELY FOR ME, SHE IS THE MUSKY CATCHER.

DOES ANYONE KNOW OF ANY RIDING STABLES IN THE AREA THAT WOULD STILL BE OPEN THIS LATE IN THE SEASON? THANKS.

Lund Rider,

You may want to check with Brian Jones of First Choice Guide Service. Him and the Mrs. are in the know when it comes to the equestrian sports. I am also a Lund Rider (Alaskan) which helps me earn my name here! Good luck and happy riding.

PS You may want to look Brian up for some Top Quality Muskie Hunting, he is one of the best. Ask him about the Windy special and he will cut you a deal from his already low prices.

Hey Lund Rider,

Check out the pics that Brian just posted on this thread, then give him a call to set up a day for you and the Mrs. Tell him to be sure you get first crack at all the muskies and maybe you will beat her this trip, LOL !

Good Luck

Windy

THANKS FOR THE ADVICE, WINDY. I'D HATE TO SEE HOW MUCH WORSE THE WIFE WOULD OUTFISH ME IF SHE GOT SOME POINTERS FROM BRIAN. I SEE YOU ARE FROM ILLINOIS, TOO. WE LIVE IN PEORIA.

Lund Rider,

Imagine that, another "flat lander" who goes to Cass Lake!

LOL

The guys who cruise this site will get a chuckle out of that. It seems that Illinois has made Cass Lake it's official vacation destination.

Anywho, talk to Brian about the horse situation. Brian and his wife are in the process of starting up a horse boarding business and I know she is "in the know" about horses so she might know of a place still open to ride. If you can get out for a day or even a half day with Brian I am sure he would put you on some good muskie spots that you could use for the rest of your trip. I use him strictly for walleye and some perch but his first love is the big girls. He really knows his stuff when it comes to the muskie on Cass. Have a great trip!

THANKS, CHRIS, FOR THE INFO ON PINE RIVER. I'LL PASS ALONG THE PHONE NUMBER TO MY WIFE. SHE REALLY WANTS TO GO RIDING UP THERE.

HEY, WINDY. I HAVE BEEN CHECKING OUT THE CHAT ROOM HERE FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS, BUT DON'T POST VERY OFTEN. HEARD A LOT ABOUT BRIAN ON HERE. WE HAVE BEEN GOING TO CASS LAKE FOR ABOUT TWENTY YEARS NOW. MISSED LAST YEAR'S TRIP TO CASS LAKE. LAST YEAR'S MINNESOTA TRIP WAS TO MAYOS, THANKS TO MY CRUMMY HEALTH THE LAST COUPLE YEARS. I IMAGINE BRIAN WOULD BE BOOKED UP WITH THIS SHORT OF NOTICE THOUGH. WE HIRED A GUIDE A FEW YEARS AGO, PAUL NELSON, AND HE TOOK US TO LAKE PLANTANGANET. SAID THE MUSKIES WEREN'T AS BIG AS CASS LAKE'S BUT IT HAD MORE NUMBERS. I STILL STRUCK OUT. BUT PAUL DIDN'T CATCH ANY EITHER. I SHOULD ENTER MY WIFE IN THE MUSKY TOURNAMENT THAT IS GOING ON WHILE WE ARE UP THERE. MIGHT PAY FOR OUR TRIP. HAVE YOU READ MERV HEITSCHMIDT'S BOOK `NETTING REEL MEMORIES'? HIS FOLKS BOUGHT BIRCH VILLA.

Rider,

Sounds familiar, our family just celebrated our 20th Anniversary of going up to Cass. We stay at Wishbone Resort. I thought you were a newbie to Cass since I have not seen many of your posts. I am a big mouth when it comes to this site so you probably have seen my junk non stop. If you have been coming up for 20 years you know where the muskies lurk but if you have had a bad stretch give Brian a call and let him check his book. I am sure he would have at least a half day open in the 2 week stretch, if not, have fun anyway. My wife and I go up for two weeks, by ourselves the first week and then 20+ family members the 2nd week, four generations of family. Good times!

Bigmouth on this site? Check out Windy on the Baseball forum although being a SSide PaleHose fan, he ain't breathing too heavily anymore...nyuk,nyuk.

Any of youze guyz like to adventure on Star Island, there is a great book of interviews of the old-time residents who recant stories of living primitively and then the push toward modernization on the island. I think the title is "Star Island: A Minnesota Summer Community". REEL interesting if you've ever fantasized about having a place on Star.

First in line can borrow it for the cost of postage and a promise to return it. Lemme know at genegodawa at hotmail.

Lundrider,

Are you going on the rides with your wife? If it would just be your musky slaying bride she might want to check with my horse crazed lady...We are picking up a new Tennesee Walker that is smooth as I think a horse can physicaly be. There is another place in the Bemidji area but I don't know the name off the top of my head...will check with wife...

HELLO BRIAN,

I'M NOT TOO SURE WHAT MY WIFE WAS PLANNING, REALLY. I THINK SHE WAS PLANNING ON US RIDING TOGETHER, BUT PLANS CAN CHANGE IF SOMETHING ELSE COMES UP. I'M NOT SURE HOW MANY TIMES SHE WAS PLANNING ON GOING RIDING. I DON'T THINK SHE REALLY THOUGHT THERE WOULD BE A PLACE TO RIDE THAT WAS STILL OPEN FOR THE SEASON. IF I CAN FIND A PLACE WHERE SHE CAN GO, THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

HEY, GENEG,

THAT IS A NEAT BOOK TOO. PRETTY COOL BEING CASS LAKE NEWSPAPER ARTICLES FROM THE `GOOD OLD DAYS'. NEAT OLD PHOTOS TOO. I PICKED UP A COPY ON EBAY A WHILE BACK.

Lund,

It has probably been 5 yrs since I read it - about as long as its been since I went into Windigo - so I will have to re-read it this winter I think. That'll get me dreamin' about next year's trip back to Cass in June.

I can't wait already!
