I think there should be a catch and release state record category for EVERY fish.  Not just these larger ones.  Not everyone is interested in killing a fish that could potentially be a stated record.  I understand that they're trying to protect these larger species of fish but there should be a C & R option for all of them, not just some of them.

 

Way to go on the muskie.

Us Iowans keep your economy alive.  I can't tell you how much money my family pours in a year.  You guys up there have a great state.  I hope to live there some day. Don't hate on us.  Congrats on a Monster.  Oh and Go Hawks.

No Worries--All is well and forgiven. 😁   ...Until that Hawks comment!  😣 

Just for that I got half a mind to run down to Okoboji and catch me a state record Iowa fish just to spite you!  (...and this time I might take a picture/register it, because ya'll know I've caught numerous 32+ inch walleyes all >18# that I just don't photograph or document... ...Ha!)

And we still don't know the approximate area of the lake this great fish was caught in.   I'm hoping east since that will suck all the hardcore musky guys  to the other end of the lake and they won't be bothering me. 😁

 

I'm thinking it was under Musky Tom's dock

The angler's family cabin is on Grassy Point, but who knows exactly where it was caught.

Thanks.  That's close enough, although....

 

Right in the middle.... more ambiguity.  😁

I have to say Iwegians are not noted for having much of a sense of humor though. 😝

      When I was drilling holes for people and I could hear screams and squeals over the noise of my auger drilling holes it makes the trip worth it for me.  We have dubbed this trip Dad's and Lad's, its a get away for dad's and their sons to enjoy the outdoors, spend a night away from home and usually catch a lot of fish.  A set of twins were competing against each other last year and one of the kids was over 9 fish landed.  Not many kids can say they've caught trout through the ice and in this setting it's a lot of fun because of the aggressiveness of the trout.  I have a feeling we'll be doing a 3rd Annual trip in 2020.

      Looks like a awesome trip the smiles on the kids faces say it all!

      Just remember when you point fingers there are at least 3 pointing back at you!!!  This is never an easy subject to debate because of the emotions that are involved.  Every time someone blames the RLB for commercial fishing or netting, I get why they are opposed to it, but at the same time I just laugh a little.  Yes commercial netting can be a bad thing, but if it is regulated closely and they are on top of things, why do we care how they get their allocated pounds of fish?  I can promise you that what ever poundage is reportedly taken out of the state controlled waters is higher due to thieves that can't fish by the rules.  I don't agree with certain pollical issues that play into the area up there, but that debate is way beyond my education level!!  I do know that we sure do complain a lot about the RLB, and how they get their walleye poundage, on a huge lake that we can't even enter!!  I think the RLB has a good handle on what is happening on their portion of the lake, and if there is any illegal activity going on their side, they will handle it accordingly.  I don't believe they are looking the other way towards illegal netting the way it may have been in the past.  What I do know of Red Lake is that it is a beautiful lake that is certainly abused on the state controlled portion with illegal harvesting and horrible actions regarding disposing of garbage in the winter.  If we could clean up our act, and were perfect, then I think we could look at other and try to figure out what is going wrong, but first we need to correct our issues!!  Good Luck

      Thanks for the report Kettle. How much snow you end up with from this round? Heading up next week for my first trip this winter. Thanks!!

      Did you NOT read the part of the story where the tribal fisheries was created by the BIA (whites)? Other bands in N MN also had fisheries created but did not stick with it as Red Lake did.   What I don't understand is the misinformation spread and how we always are jealous when someone (the band) has something we don't?   To me, if you want netting banned then you should be prepared to give up your electronics trolling motors and just row on lakes where you want to fish.   We're in this together. Its working.

      What a weekend...I almost need a day off to recover from the wild weekend I had so here's a quick update. Friday we packed up and took off for Red Lake Casino for the night, $70 hotel fee for 2 queens and a fireplace nothing fancy but beat getting up at 2 am to drive north.   Saturday morning got up early and fished the Red Lake Reservation and got back to the lake I've fished before and done great.  I hadn't drilled a hole yet after getting people out on the ice and helping guide vehicles and I was hearing "I GOT ONE" "FISH ON" so you knew it was going to be a good day when sun hasn't come up yet and we are pulling fish out of the ice instantly.  It took us about 2 hours to limit out on trout and a few of us saved 1 fish and took off for a second lake after getting pictures with the kids and our catch.  Second lake was a bust but you never know till you try!  Came home and the was able to get home before dark which was nice after the long day we had on the ice. Sunday we took off with the ranger on a local lake in Becker County.  Ice was flooding bad near shore but was solid out 200 yards from shore.  It was our first trip out with the Ranger so it was a dry run to see how it was going to work with everything attached and hooked up for ice fishing.  Everything worked but fish didn't cooperate.  Fished a few spots using the Hellix mounted to the dash as a guide but just couldn't put fish on the ice.  Ton of small pike were active again and I did land one bluegill that measured 9.0 inches.  We did leave a little early due to the weather coming in and we had to unload prior to heading back to Moorhead.   I'm hearing mixed reports of ice reports for example on Big Pine where our cabin is I'm hearing 6-7 inches then a guy posted Friday night he was on 4 inches.  So these lakes are very hit and miss so please with the snow take time and verify a safe route especially before bringing kids out onto the ice.   This upcoming weekend I'm going to be limited availability because of the Ice Show at the Scheels Arena in Fargo.  Got a lot of friends coming in to man booths and give presentations so it'll be fun to catch up with them and the girlfriend will be in the Women Anglers of Minnesota booth all day Friday and half the day on Saturday.  I'm hoping to sneak out Saturday afternoon and fish after dark and hopefully get into some crappies or blue gills.  Hopefully I'll have better pictures next weekend.   Attached should be our Ranger with fish houses behind, group photo of us trout fishing, a few people holding up some trout (Gloria got a big one, not in our group but they forgot their phones on shore), and lastly my pretty solo bluegill I got Sunday.

      Safety matters.   Not sure what you know about backwaters ice fishing @Bucketcastle but a newbie is best served going where others have already paved a trail. Especially in the backwaters where currents can be tricky.   So if you're new to those backwaters definitely look for parked vehicles and follow their trails. You will catch plenty of keepers that way as well.   Have fun.

      Taking spud bar out Friday, if safe I'll be on Coon Sat.
    • CJH
      Be safe, still saw some open water this week.  It will build some ice in the next few days, but with the snow, its better to be safe than sorry.   NO fish is worth it.
    • Bucketcastle
      I'll be out with the spud bar next weekend taking it easy.  @papadarv I hope you have enough ice to test it out.  Looks like a fun set up.
