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

      Sorry I forgot to put their phone #.  218-385-3385. Ask for Dan or Bonnie.   Hope this helps.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
