3 posts in this topic

A buddies kid got picked for the youth hunt at the arden hills armory. Anyone hunt or been in there? We know where he should set up. We drove around it and kinda scouted you can see the hills trees pond so we have an idea of what it looks like. Any extra info would be great its his kids first big bow hunt the kid past up 3 small 6 pts. already waiting for arden hills.

Some big deer in that area. I drive by it every morning, wishing I had a youth to take hunting! I routinely see 4-5 deer walking the roads in the stretch paralelling Cty Road I. I've seen (a couple times) a buck that looks to be at least 140". Last time it had it's nose in a tree, so I couldn't count points (especially at 45 mph!). It seems to be at least an 8 pt., but I'm leaning towards 10. Anyway, hope your buddies kid has a blast. Post pics if he arrows the big one.

Send him my way. I've done quite a bit of field-work out there relating to my job. I'll be able to help out as I've spent many hours out there driving around and working.

I'm envious. I saw the largest buck of my life out there two years ago. The thing was an even 12 that probably taped around 24+ inches wide, and heavy the whole way through. I got to watch it for about 2 minutes, and it ended up about 15 yards from me before it saw me. Never saw him again.

      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

      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..

      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.
