Check out the star tribune today. Nice story on Vermilion Muskies. Troll those 14 inch baits on the west end.

Wow, that's impressive. Glad to see the west end getting some good press.

Anyone know if they got those girls from his place up to Wakeumup or did they go through Wakeumup narrows and beyond to get them?

The big girls have really been biting on the East end of Vermilion this fall also.

Guide, Dave Schaeffer, boated a total of 12 muskies in 9 outings in the period from Oct., 17 to Nov.,13! shocked.gif

He boated 5 fish in one day!

He had 6 fish over 50 inches with 1 that was over 50 pounds!

His largest fish was a 54-1/2 incher that had a 27 inch girth!

Congratulations Dave! What a fall you have had.

Congrats Dave and family. I think your wife still has the calculated heaviest fish... grin.gif I'm glad you rode that horseshoe right to the end because we know the horse always dies someday.... frown.gif

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
