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

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
