Depends on how bad the musky bug gets by the end of the week. It's already got me tying bucktails at midnight so I may not make it onto the big lake but you never know. I may get antsy to get the skunk out of the boat and head out to put a little something in the cooler.

Lota Lota...

At this point we should be out Saturday morning. Maybe tonight too if the wind calms down.

This might not count exactly, but I'll be taking the family out of Silver Bay this weekend.

Mostly, we've been hitting the reefs North of Sand Island this summer and the eater sized lakers have been very cooperative. This will be my first MN water adventure of the year.

Looking at the weather report, doesn't look like the winds will calm down much until late Friday afternoon/evening. Saturday looks good.

Ya this wind isnt going to lay down for a good while. Really blowing now in the Barkers Island area. I may just have to go Crappie chasing up river instead. Lota we saw 2 nice Muskies up by 23 but dont take your boat up there if ya know whats good for it.

From what I hear Spirit Lake, Devils Elbow and down by the Wi. Entry have been ok for skis.

Planning on trying to get out sunday morning with Xplorer Junior onboard most likely. Since I've spent nearly all my summer free time up in Voyageurs, any general advice on where a guy should start? I'm planning on heading up and trying the lester to pumphouse run 80-140' with a couple rigger/flasher/meat rigs and then a couple dipsey/spoon or #ball/spoon rigs up higher. Sound like a gameplan for those that have been out recently??

And just for clarification, since X Jr. will be onboard, i should be able to run 4 lines, correct? He just turned 4, but can reel in a fish if i help hold the rod for him. He managed to catch a 25.25 walleye this summer so i thought he was ready for some bigger game smile.gif

      First off I am not a waterfowl hunter, so this info is second hand.

      Here in the Morrison/E.Todd cty area, the hunt really seemed slow considering the weather conditions.  Although a few birds were shot early in morning the day seemed slow by most accounts around here.

      Good luck to all.

      No internet in the field today. Had a group sky busting keeping birds out of anyone's range. Riverrat and I got buzzed by teal a few time and a pair of woodies scooted through. Should have had a shoveler and some woodies. The bugs were so bad I lost 4 pints of blood. 

      Now to the fun parts Finn was jumping woodcock son the fields on our way out. Finn did good but does not like no action. After leaving the refuge I checked my dads pond. O yeah there was a woodie sitting on the log bang!! No finn needs to do his job.

    • Lindy came along on our trip to Western MN for duck opener. The guys that came out Thursday to start scouting had a field lined up with alot of geese but they got busted off the roost early in a huge flock and didn't commit. We ended up with only 2 birds today.  She had to stay back in her crate during the hunt but got to play with a wing afterwards.

      Great price on Thursdays (burger day at around $3.50)!

      what size screen does your new unit have----------------I have a 5 inch helix with side imaging and for me it worthless-------------------the screen is TOO small to see whats going on.  I wouldn't buy any unit that didn't have at least a 7 inch screen.  What unit is your new one??

      I've got a powerdrive also...............my unit would run fine out of water,in water no way.  The prop would barely turn.  I ended up replacing the board the unit and it runs like champ now.  I had it to a dealer and they told me there was nothing wrong with it----------but ,they only bench tested it and did not do a tank test

      Fished Thursday in 30 feet out of the gap and did very well. Couple of slots and a couple of dinks but mostly nice keeper size fish, had to quit early in the day because we had all our fish. Should only get better from here on out I would think.

      Feels like fall this morning!  I was yesterday morning with my son. We did some trolling and it was really good.  I think I might try to get the jigging rods out today and give that a go.  First headed to see the wolves with the kids.
