58 posts in this topic

I am leaving the first saturday in August open. we will meet at the access at about an hour before sun up to assign boats and pair up guys. please if you want to play post so we can figure out how many boats we have. if you dont have a boat and still want to play post as well and we find some one for you to pair up with. PLEASE POST if interested. I will talk to the guys at Zorbaz and see if we can get a drink special for guys on saturday night after fishing. Cheffery also offered to let us have a shindig over at Trappers Landing on Leech, let me know whether you want to go to The Landing or do zorbaz thanks, Jonah

I will try hard to make it and I think it will work. I have a boat that could be used. But I don't know jack about Muskies so if someone knows what they are doing and would like to try and teach a walleye guy I am up for that. Johan if you need any help let me know as I should be around most weekends this summer.

I'm in, Mantrap or leech, either one will work for me but we might have to think about the guys with smaller boats. I will have my boat. It might also depend on teh weather.

Sorry, but I'll have to stick with a "definite maybe" response. My wife will 8+ months pregnant at that time and I may get something cut off if I try make it. 'Course, I may still try make it...

I'll have to see what comes up by then but it sounds like a good time. Never fished mantrap before but have fished plantagenet and elk in the area. Have a cabin near lake alice that we stay at. I have a 16' alumnacraft with 40hp merc and may have room for one if I can make it.

I'm about 90% sure I can make it but cannot be sure until closer to the event. I do have a boat if needed. Doesn't matter to me which place between Zorbaz or Trappers landing. How will the pairings be worked out? If possible would be nice to have experienced people with lesser experienced people.

One thing I will note. My boat is over in Park Rapids all summer. So if it saves someone that is a experienced having to trailer a long distance let me know we can work something out.

      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.
