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.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy. 
    • Brandon Klatt
      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol
    • mrpike1973
      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.

      They work. And as stated, sometimes better then live suckers! Cliff

      I can’t say Big Marine is a big fish factory but it should have nice clarity.  The main lakes of Minnetonka are pretty cool to play on.  Yeah, Minnetonka is a muskie lake but there are a lot of nice pike swimming out there.

      I’ve had the same issue with keeping them alive. Dead bait works way way better than live bait anyway. Defiently going to give that a try wanderer!
    • Wanderer
      I’ve saved dead/dying suckers before.  Pull them as soon as you can and freeze em.  I’ve sprinkled them with salt before bagging and freezing.  Fish them on the bottom. There was a time I targeted big pike with big minnows and would actually kill a minnow before sinking it to the bottom with one of my lines. As with everything, it’ll work better some places at some times, not as much as a live minnow other times.  Later season when pike cruise just below the ice scooping up the dead loss of the winter, suspending your dead sucker a foot below the ice can be your big fish ticket.
