I'm soooo excited for this, I wish it were this weekend already! blush.gif

We've got a good mix of Pro Staff who will be around for the weekend, so this should be interesting and fun. Whoever thought walleyes could bring a diverse group of people together. grin.gif

Big Thanks to Paul & Appledoorn's for organizing this little Get-Together! It will be a fun and informational time!

Man that is a great deal and I would love to take you up on that. My wife and I have adoption classes for 8 hours those two days so I won't be able to make it up. I hope you have this again sometime.

I can't wait for this one to come. After spending time at Appeldoorns this winter I can't wait to get back up there. Even if the weather is bad we'll be in first class accomodations.

My buddy and I are going to try to make the trip. I have had some of my best fishing experiences on ML in early October. If my buddy buys the boat he is looking at, we will be up there, mine just doesn't quite cut it out past the opening to Isle Bay in the October wind and waves. How many rooms do you guys have available for the weekend?

If there are a couple guys with open seats, I would love to come up and meet some of the other members and tag along. Maybe we should start an open seat roll call for the get together and there might be others interested as well. I really love fishing the big lake in October but I just know my boat (14' Lund with a 15 horse) wont cut it out there.

If you have an open seat, make a reply.

If you are looking for an open seat, do the same.

Fellas, opportunity only knocks so many times, and this is trophy time on the big pond!!!!!! Plus, you get a chance to sit around a bon fire and pick on your friendly neighborhood FM pro-staff to boot!!! Call Paul at Appledorns and sign up for this.

I have a 16' Starcraft with a 70 HP Johnson. It's far from the most comfortable ride, but it's a boat and it floats. I'll make room for one more guy in my boat.

Hi guys,

I see one "wife" listed, anyone else bringing the co-ed with? Nice place to stay makes it a good option to bring her with and fish and also call it a weekend together. Go ahead and call me a whipped man, but it sounds like fun for both of us! grin.gif

Prime muskie water at the prime time is hard to pass up!

I just sent an email to Paul confirming my wife and I are joining in.

I've fished the fall night bite on the west side for at least 8 years, but I've never fished the East side, day or night. I'll need tips on where to go. I have a handheld GPS (iFinder Expedition) with a navionics premium chip, so I should be able to avoid the rocks....

My wife is very unlikely to fish at night (unless its calm and warn, and then not too late), so I'll either have an open seat or look to ride with someone else.

I'm looking forward to seeing Paul and Borch again (its been a few years), and meeting the rest of you!

Fischer's is usually good in Fall. I can make a few calls and find out what's going on.

I may be in the same situation as far as night fishing. I'm not sure if my wife will go out either.

      Things have become pretty hit or miss for my house out there.  I fished last week from Tuesday through Sunday; alas, school started yesterday so it's back to the real world for now.  During afternoon primetime, I caught between zero fish (yes, I got skunked one night) and 12.  Daybite was very tough (mainly because I quit fishing and either went hiking over at Kathio, tip-up fishing in the bays, or went down and looked at guns at Boone's), but the reports I heard from those fishing hard during the day made that decision fairly easy.     The overnight bite was pretty steady, with multiple fish each night coming on the rattle reels.  I pulled the lines twice because I got sick of catching 15-17'' walleyes.    Sunrise was also hit or miss.    All in all, it's not early ice anymore, that's for sure.  I'm still fishing fairly shallow, and it might be time to move the house.  Biggest fish all weekend was just under 28''.  I still have only one keeper in my current location despite catching well over 100 walleyes there in the last few weeks.  The last week or so was pretty strange...at least two nights either me or my friend caught more than 10 fish while the other guy, fishing less than 15 yards away, caught very few.  Why the fish can be loaded in one spot and non-existent a few feet away, and then switch the next night so the "hot" house goes cold, is a mystery to this fisherman. Maybe they swim counter-clockwise around the lake one night and then turn around and swim clockwise the next?

      I dont have any experience with this, but as i was reading response about dog needing the surgery on its other knee after. I wont if it is like a athlete, where they come back from an ACL and tear the other because favoring it so much? Just thinking out loud basically

      These stats have a lot to do with it!  GF=138 GA=92 One of the highest and lowest in the NHL as of today that is huge.

      Thanks for the report!  How big were the walleyes?  Keepers? Care to share your tactics?  Time of day, how deep you were fishing, type of bait?  I'm new to metro walleye fishing and trying to hone my skills a bit.
