Hey fellas,

I haven't been on FM (or fishing for that matter) nearly as much as I would like to have been this summer. A new job has had me training in Madison for the last 3 months. crazy.gif I'm back now however, just in time for fall muskie fishin'. There's just one little issue that might still be competing for time on the lake. (Here is where I become the proud papa.)

Meet Lincoln James. He was born on Wednesday morning. 6 lbs, 3 oz, 20" long. He is our first and I'm thinking he'll be on the ice with me by the end of next season. The boss just says that I have to switch from a 10" to an 8" hole!

Thanks everyone! Yeah, he came just in time to see #4 break the touchdown record today. Now if I can just teach him the touchdown signal by game time.....

Seriously, thanks for all the kind words. I look forward to seeing you all on the ice this winter if not on the water sooner. Steve, I'll give you a call today.

Ya he should have set the Interception record 1st but those Favre favoring Refs called it back.

Why does it seem like all the records are set against the Vikes?

Anyways enough whining. Congrats J-man and Ill be dropping off some goodies, purple of course wink.gif, for the little one later in the week.

Oh, and I should add, especially in light of today's expected and appropriate Packer win, that it's cool you've got not only a new fishing buddy but a new little Green and Gold fan. grin.gif

Jared,

That's some great news. I have only been out fishing twice since we have been back from vacation. If I'm not at the cabin getting ready for deer season on my days off we have been making jam like crazy.

Give me a call on my cell when you get a chance and maybe can meet up at Billy's and supervise the construction that's going on.

Congrats to you and the misses, Great job!!!

      G'day guys, I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?

      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD
      There are good bass in Crooked too

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.
