Last weekend Muskey Tourney?

7 posts in this topic

Does anyone have the results from the muskey tourney this past weekend? The tourney website does not even have them. In general how did everyone do? I did not fish it, but saw a number of boats with the yellow hats on.

I saw a lot of Yellow hat myself. Didn't fish the tourney but did see a few fish.

We fished it and heard there were about 640 entered and around 80 fish caught. Belive bigget was a 53 and a handful of 50's from Leech. No luck for us, did not see a fish not even a northern. We blamed it on the cold front but someone was catching fish. Guess we need to get smarter. Official results should be posted in a week or so.

3 fish won it. Numbers were down due to the cold front. Big Lake (not Leech) appeared to be the place to be, but Leech won the event. The guy that won caught a 53 and two other big ones. We raised a few, but nothing on a hook. I believe 80 fish on Leech, 100+ for the entire event. I was up the week prior and could not boat a fish. Weather was perfect, but it was not my time. Then, the cold front. Frustrating, but still a great event. Basically, confirms taht Leech can win it, but numbers are often harder to come by.

The Twin Cities Muskey Inc website has not posted the results yet but that is where you will be able to find them.

      I took the boat out for a test run last weekend to a quiet little lake. Water temp was 54. This weather isn't going to help with the water temps.

      Is the Vermilion egg capture complete?

      I hope to be out early next week.  Weather and river level depending.  Will post a report if I make it out.  Boat all ready to go.

      I camp on an island so I don't have to worry about the landings and crowds. Do most of our fishing at night so I never worry about other anglers. If I needed to go to a public landing for opener I would never go.

      Here's the State's definition of a public water. Please note the highlighted text.  The Sucker is a Designated Trout Stream. (remember the blasting and improvements made back in the 70's? Those were public dollars that paid for it. )  That said, this isn't license for people to slob up private property, only to gain access to the stream. It might mean walking the shoreline from bluebird landing, or down from the freeway, but the water is open, and fishable,  to the high water mark. Subd. 15.Public waters. (a) "Public waters" means: (1) water basins assigned a shoreland management classification by the commissioner under sections 103F.201 to 103F.221; (2) waters of the state that have been finally determined to be public waters or navigable waters by a court of competent jurisdiction; (3) meandered lakes, excluding lakes that have been legally drained; (4) water basins previously designated by the commissioner for management for a specific purpose such as trout lakes and game lakes pursuant to applicable laws; (5) water basins designated as scientific and natural areas under section 84.033; (6) water basins located within and totally surrounded by publicly owned lands; (7) water basins where the state of Minnesota or the federal government holds title to any of the beds or shores, unless the owner declares that the water is not necessary for the purposes of the public ownership; (8) water basins where there is a publicly owned and controlled access that is intended to provide for public access to the water basin; (9) natural and altered watercourses with a total drainage area greater than two square miles; (10) natural and altered watercourses designated by the commissioner as trout streams; and (11) public waters wetlands, unless the statute expressly states otherwise.
