LOST: MUSKIE BAIT!

3 posts in this topic

Just spreading as much info as I can. My family and I lost our toy poodle Friday night 7/12. We stopped to pick up mom at the Douglas County hospital, and she jumped out of the car...unbeknownst to us. It was about 10:30-10:45pm....we drove home and finally noticed she was missing. A call to the hospital confirmed she was left behind, and was seen near the back parking lot. I returned to search...looking for her until 2:00am...no luck. We received a report that she was sighted along south Broadway near the Video store close to midnight....someone had pulled over and was trying to coax her to their car, and away from the road. We're hoping this someone picked her up, and kept her safe over the weekend...and will return her. She's about two and a half years old. Black, toy poodle...wearing a pink collar with rhinestones. (yeah, muskie bait!...but a great fishing companion!)

We miss her....

If anyone was in that area friday night, or has seen a lost poodle wandering around, or knows of someone who found a lost dog....please let us know....call 808-5248...there is a reward.

Thanks...
Jay.

Ghotierman, sorry to hear about the dog. Hopefully he shows up soon, probably a good idea to keep your eyes on the animal shelter in town. Keep us posted. I've got a question for you and any of the other readers, I've been following a post on the Brainerd Area board called "Toad, did you give it a try yet". If you haven't read it I highly recommend it, some interesting reading regarding open water trolling, planer boards, ect. I've been experimenting myself the last couple of years on Miltona with the open water trolling for both walleye and musky but haven't had a lot of success yet. I'm just wondering if any of you have spent much time honing these techniques with any success on the Alex area lakes? Although I haven't had much success with it yet, it seems like a technique that holds a ton of potential. Any input would be appreciated.

Scott

That was a great string of posts to read. I read through the better part of them and if reading is beleiving then there is a Ton of potential in this way of fishing, guess i never really bothered to fish out in the middle but if you think about it it makes complete sense, bait fish 20 feet down of course there has to be predators near by looking for dinner. This is definetly a tachnique that i intend to work on, heck i'll try anything especially if it produces fish.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
