10 posts in this topic

I read in the Strib this morning of the 2 St. Paul fellows who might have shot a new MN Record Moose. Just wondering if there are pics anyewhere? Would be cool to see.

Deer opener is just around the corner!! smile.gif

Forget the Moose. The quote from "Slap Shot" is just as good. "Here's a name for you nostalgia fans: Clarence "Screaming Buffalo" Swamptown. I'll never forget an exclusive interview in which Swamptown revealed that he calls his hockey stick the "Big Tomahawk," and he usually refers to the opposing players as "the little scalps".

"He used to get deliberate penalties and darned if he wouldn't......" See the movie, its a classic.

Oh yeah, Nice moose.

I have a hard time believing that is a state record. Hell of a nice moose, but a state record? I just don't see it. No width on the palms, few overall points (excluding the brow tines) and not much mass. I've seen a lot of MN moose sheds much bigger that than boy...maybe the bigger ones just have never been killed I guess.

considering there are only a few moose shot a year I think it's very possible to be a state record....It's not like canada where hundreds of moose are taken a year.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
