Recommended Posts

Rebel9921

Yeah my partner, Matty, decided to put away his fishing stuff so he could focus on hunting which starts this saturday... but the thing here is that Im not ready to do that... so if you need a partner... for muskie fishing... let me know... date, time, and location... I'll meet you there... I'll be more than happy to help you out with gas for boat, etc etc... I'll travel as far as Forest Lake, Lake Waconia, or French Lake... wherever it takes me in my search for my first-ever Muskie... whether it be 2007 or not... Just email me at rebel9921@tmail.com Thanks!!!

Rebel, You mean you haven't hooked up out there yet? The bite on Forest will stay good right through September and into October. Maybe you need to talk to matty and borrow his boat while he sits in the goose blind!

What bite??? I was out on Forest last week, and nothing... zip... zilch... we fished all over Lake 1... Where are those good bites you are talking about??? I could ask Matty but I dont think I'd feel comfortable doing that... not my boat... I accidently break something... will he forgive me??? thats the thing... its his boat... so better off to go with him... besides... I dont have a problem with him wanting to hunt... just what he wants... no pressure for him from me... Oh wait a minute... are you the guy Matty and I talked to on the dock one day???

King... yeah... Im still waiting for you to get back to me on the boat rental thing... or for you to bring back your boat from your cabin!!!

As far as the boat rental, I have forgotten what you wanted me to find out! I thought we had figured everything out. As far as my boat, I won't be going to the cabin until October 20th.

I am he, the guy on the dock. The fish are biting out there and have been most of the last month and a half. Speed troll bucktails over the tops of the milfoil or just out in the basin and you should hook into something eventually. If you want to cast for them then those spots I pointed out have fish on them and do hold fish but don't limit your search to the deep or shallow edge, cast paralell to the weedlines and look to the areas that have adjacent flats with access to deep water and that should get you into something toothy. Jerk baits aren't a bad option this time of year either.

King... you were supposed to find out the costs and the times, remember the plan to do night fishing???

Tunrevir... it was great meeting you!!! Matty and I practically covered all over Lake 1 except for the middle... and no muskies... Maybe 2007 isnt my year... I honestly dont know... I will know for sure once I hit Mille Lacs this weekend... whether I get the monkey off my back or not this weekend, we'll see... but hopefully what I learn from Mille Lacs, I can apply/use at Forest Lake sooner or later... Probably wont fish at Forest again til next year or Matty's in mood for some muskie fishing... who knows...

they don't allow the boats out after an hour after dark or before 7:30 a.m., and the cost is $25 for the first 2 hours and $7 an hour after that, with a 2 hour minimum. I'll call again tomorrow and double check, but that's what they told me last time I called.

Kingfisher, where are these rates from?? That is rediculous for boat rental rates. Unless it is got a decent sized motor included, that is pretty high. I am a parks manager in wisconsin just on the border and we rent our boats out for $7 for the first hour and $3 per additional hour after that. There is no minimum either. The lake is only 40 acres, so motors are not permitted, but I can row across the lake in 4 or 5 minutes so it is not a big deal. You can also bring a trolling motor if you want. It is also loaded with rainbows and huge bass. Drop me an email, I will clue you in more. You have my email!

      Hi folks... I wanna specifically address fishermen and women, boaters, outdoorsmen and women, and their spouses and significant others. Also, anyone who believes that our right to access public waterways supported by our tax dollars, and managed for our benefit by the DNR, should not be infringed upon by special interests... listen up... You may or may not know about a new program in Wright County to limit access to three lakes in the Annandale area where wealthy lake-home associations have coerced the County Board into implementing a pre-launch "AIS Inspection Station" in the city of Annandale. Anyone wishing to launch a watercraft on Lakes Sylvia, Pleasant, and John, must first travel to the city of Annandale (miles away from any boat landing), go through an inspection process, and be given permission to launch their boat in the form of a zip-tie on the trailer. There are MANY problems with this inspection regime. One problem is its hours of operation. It is open from sunup to sundown. This means that if you wish to go fishing in the evening, or at night, or early in the morning, you must first travel to Annandale THE DAY BEFORE you wish to access the lake, and get your zip-tie. Needless to say, this will undoubtedly prove to be a big enough burden on boaters and anglers that many will simply choose to go elsewhere, which, we contend, is the unstated goal of the Lake Associations who have funded this effort to lobby the County Board. They want non-residents off "their" lake. Another problem is the fact that these lakes are already unfortunately infested with AIS, which means inspecting boats on the way IN to the lake makes no logical sense. Only inspecting boats in their way OUT of an infested lake will have any chance of slowing or halting the spread of AIS. Another problem is that local businesses in Annandale, Southhaven, and to a lesser extent Clearwater and Maple Lake, will be adversely affected by the reduction in commerce that WILL occur as people from outside these fine communities decide to take their watercraft elsewhere. Another problem is the scope of this program, and the stated goals of those who are promoting it. They have said point-blank that they hope to have every county in MN look to Wright County as an example of what can be pushed through, as Lake Associations state-wide are organizing their resources and their political clout in an effort to see similar County ordinances implemented throughout Minnesota. This could, in the future, lead to a scenario where every boater who does not own lake property will first be required to travel to a central County Inspection Station in whatever county they wish to launch their boat, before they will be given permission to launch at a lake that may be many miles away from the station. We believe this is an infringement on the rights of Minnesota boaters and sportsmen to freely and responsibly access our public waterways. Even the DNR is skeptical of this program, but since it is a county matter, they are accepting it for now. Sorry for the lengthy statement. Now I'd like to ask you to take action. We have organized a social media page, over 600-strong now.... Our goal is to gather as many concerned people as we can in this group - and then appeal to the Chambers of Commerce in these fine cities, to organize themselves and appeal to the County Board for a reversal of this misguided policy, on the grounds that it will harm them economically as people take their dollars elsewhere to avoid the infringement of the inspection regime. If you haven't already, and you are concerned about liberty to access public waterways without undue burdens placed upon your access, would you consider lending your voice to ours, and joining our group? Thank you! Join Us!

      Not as easy to find bullheads in the chain as it was in the 80s-90s.... but you will still get a few here and there. The cats took care of most of the bullies over the yrs😉

      All sizes.  no bullheads in the chain.

      My wife, son and I we're on Crystal Lake in Burnsville several years ago. My son was 14-1/2 yrs. old at the time, I use to let him drive the gravel roads up at deer camp all the time and let him back the trailer into the spot, he got pretty good at it. Anyway, back to the boat ramp at Crystal Lake. I dropped the wife and son off on the dock and waited my turn to load up...a local cop was at the ramp and my wife asked if it was ok if he backed in, he didn't mind.. vehicles were waiting and my son drops it in on the first try! Proud dad moment 👍👍
