My wife and I spent yesterday walking around in Maplewood State Park....looks like we picked the last nice day for awhile. It looked like we missed the prime color time by a week or so...but it beats working smirk.gif I thought I would just share a few pics.

We camped there for a musky fishing adventure Sep. 21-25 and it was absolutely beautiful in there. So much color and we definitely hit the prime while we there. A very nice park!

Any luck? I use to fish Beers all the time....the last couple of years I have only "moved" a couple of skis....starting to wonder if there are any left in that lake confused.gif

Thanks for the pics. I just don't get down there as much since I moved from Pelican to DL. Seemed like eveery time you go in, you can find something to gawk at.

Sadly we fished on Big Detroit, Pelican Lake, Melissa, and Sallie. We didn't even know Beers had muskies in it until we got home...but it'll be on the radar next time we're up there.

A bunch of us were up in Maplewood for a 'work' weekend, what a beautiful day. We ended up going in for a dip a couple times on Saturday to cool off!

A buddy and I were able to get out on South Lida on Friday and really nailed some ginormous crappies (and nice walter and slimer too).

      I think it will be alright but i would be lying if i said i wasnt thinking what to do myself.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.
