After a brutal morning of 100 mph winds and cold air (and 1 walleye), things changed tonight. I had a man from Tennessee out on Gull and we did well. We ended up catching some nice fish, with the biggest being 29 inches. We also had a few in the 20 inch category and a number smaller. We Lindy Rigged all afternoon with chubs in 20-36 fet of water. The big momma ran and ran and after we landed her we took a few photos and released her in awesome shape. Caught her on a Viking Rig!

Dan I have to ask...What is a "Viking Rig"? Something purple and gold I assume.

Thanks Dan, I was just curious.

Going up to Wabedo and Little Boy on Saturday for a M.I. outing. I have not been out muskie fishing since I broke my collar bone in July. I am anxious to see how the plate and screws the doc put in me holds up.

Keep drowning those minnows.

Krats,

Good luck, hope the screws hold up maybe bring a screwdriver in the case you tie into the big momma. The minnows haven't had a chance to drown. I had my biggest of the year on Tuesday, a awesome 29 incher on the Viking Rig. The bite has been good, but the wind has been bad!

Take care,

Dan

Hey Dan, sorry it took so long to post this. Tom and I had a fantastic time fishing w/you on 9/8. We ended up having a great week and time up there. We knew nothing of the lake and your expertise worked that day and we continued to use your hints/ways and pointers you graciously offered to have one great week on Gull. Again a big THANX, and so everyone knows, WalleyeDan does a great job in guiding/finding and giving advice/pointers.

Hi Rick,

I had fun fishing with you two and I'm happy you had a good week, hope the ladies did too. Hope to see you again someday. We have moved into our own shop. Next time you are up make sure you stop in. We are located across from the water slide in Nisswa. We will be open for business very soon.

Thanks,

Walleyedan

Good Afternoon Dan.. Talked with you last Saturday at the gas station by Breezy pt... Your recomendations of were to fish and what to use helped. Thanks, We headed to the smaller lake you suggested north of 371. Did not have much luck. Your second suggestion on Pelican worked out, The 4 of us fished until 4am and did well trolling in 7 ft of water. I believe we caught 20+ walleyes and missed just as many.(It is amazing you can miss that many with treble hooks)All around 17 to 22 inches. Thanks again for sharing your knowledge and to do that so freely. We will certainly keep you in mind when we plan or large company fishing outing in 2008 at Cragun's. We have used Dan and many of his guides for our company trips to Cragun's and I would highly recommend all of them... Dan truely wants you to enjoy fishing and it is not all about the money.. Thanks again

Dan is a heck of a nice guy, and a good guide too. I haven't seen a whole lot of him lately, but I still use many of his recommendations and techniques. I'm sure he'll land on his feet, and continue to provide the area with great information, and guide service.

      Hmmm...getting a prosthetic foot and attaching hooks now

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.
