Congratulations to two Fmers. I saw the article by Sam Cook today and had to say congrats. to Kent and Brian. Sounds like you guys had a good trip. Maybe even got Sam to get into FM.

yeah, it was a fun trip although the fishing was a little slow. sam is a great guy and it was great to get to know him and brian graff a little better. i tell you, those guys have some great stories to tell around a campfire. Me and Porter will also be on Minnesota bound at the beginning of June, we shot a steelhead show this spring and it should be a good one, we got a lot of fish on tape.

You guys deserve it, the way you've been hitting it since I met you, congrats! Looking forword to the MN Bound, please post when that show will air. Many of us will watch.

And to think only a couple short years ago IllTakeWhatICanGet was a bottle of Old #7.

Once again, you guys deserve it ( still how did QS get a 1" x 1" photo & Porter get center stage??? grin.gif )

Excellent work from Sam, as always. Also doesn't hurt to have two relentless young fishermen to write about. grin.gif

Way to go guys. Looks like a fun trip. It was a good read especially the part that made you guys hero's. I have had to make the same frantic paddle toward someone else's rig. Keeps you on your toes.

I was tryin, but they must have photoshopped it out. I'm surprised you recognized me without the chest hair, it seems like lately you've been pretty fixated on my chest blush.gif

It was a great trip, even though the weather didn't totally cooperate. Gotta take what mother nature gives ya though, and we had a lot of fun despite the wind. The Minnesota Bound episode kent mentioned should be airing on June 2 at 8:30 am on channel 9- as far as they can tell me at this point. If anything changes we'll keep you posted. They got a lot of good footage, so it'll be cool to see what they did with it. Bill, the producer we filmed with, said it came together really well so it should be fun to watch...

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      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..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
