Camp Ripley When do you arrive?

4 posts in this topic

I am hunting on Thursday and Friday When do you all arrive who have done this hunt. It is my first hunt would it be best to try to be first in line or wait till Thursday morning and get there later? What is best and any pointers on where to try?

Have done this hunt in the past and first in line is a tall order. Seems like no matter how early you are, there is always at least fifty vehicles in front of you. Doesn't matter though, great bunch of guys and plenty of area to hunt. Have fun and good luck!

Honetly, you should be in line right now. I didn't get drawn this year but last 2 years I get off work Wed 7AM and get there by 8:30 and there are 30 vehicles ahead of me. It sure beats coming in last and having to find a spot to hunt rather picking a spot if you get there early. Enjoy yourself it will be a blast.

      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..

      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.
